11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello !

My fiancé and me are busy gathering everything we need so we can file our petition. Really exited ! We wonder tho, and I could not find information on it. Is the petition send to random service centers, or is it regionally based? My fiancé lives in Arizona.

Thank you ! :)

The petitions are mailed to the Texas lockbox. From there they are sent to either the California Service Center or the Texas Service Center. Note that the Texas Service Center is not the same as the Texas lockbox.

Generally the petitions are routed to the service center based on your location. Since your fiancé is in Arizona, more than likely you will end up at the CSC.
