AOS: Sending I-485 via Fedex

Hey everyone,

I am getting ready to send in my wife's AOS I-485 file to Chicago via the express courier address. I have two quick questions.

1.) I see on a recent post here that the express courier address in Chicago gives Fedex some problems and some people have been told here that fedex will not guarantee delivery. Is this still true? Did anyone have issues? Was sending Fedex problem free? Can anyone that has filed recently shed some light on this situation? I really prefer Fedex with my critical documents.

2.) When you sent your file via express courier, did you require a signature for delivery? Some people have claimed that requiring a signature to the express courier address has caused them delivery problems. Can anyone shed some light on this issue? Is it a myth?

Any help would be appreciated
