Please help! Wrong address on several things. Panicking :(

I am the United States citizen from Georgia. I am currently lucky enough to live with my fiance in England.

My fiance dropped off our K1 petition packet today on his way to work, but made a few errors. Some I don't think are a big deal, others..well, I'm not so sure. I'm nearing meltdown mode. If any reassurance or advice could be given, it'd be much appreciated. He mailed our petition to the Lewisville address, since he used express mail.

On the $340 Money Order (we had to use one instead of a check), he wrote

Pay To: US Department of Homeland Security

Address: USCIS

Attn: I-129F N-400

2501 South State Highway 121

Business Suite 400

Lewisville, Texas 75067

Why he included both, I'll never understand :oops:. The "Pay To" line is spelled out correctly, but will the "Attn" line make any difference since he included both?

Then, on the actual package to be delivered, he wrote


ATTN: N-400

2501 South State Highway 121

Business Suite 400

Lewisville, Texas 75067

I can see that all the K1 and N-400 petitions end up in Lewisville for intake. Do they open all the packets upon arrival? What I'm hoping is that our packet will be opened, it will be realized that it is indeed a K1 petition with correct fees, and the N-400 part will just be ignored.

And then on the cover letter, again, he put


2501 South State Highway 121

Business Suite 400

Lewisville, Texas 75067

I doubt the cover letter will make much difference, but I'm panicking about the money order and package address.

Please give me some reassurance that our packet will be correctly sent on to the processing center and not sent to a N-400 processing center, only to be turned around again. What, if anything, can or should I do about this now?


Anxious and Seeking Reassurance.

Honestly... they may take it or return it...

If they were to return it just correct the errors and resend the packet. Just minor delay.

I'm glad you think that if it gets delayed, it'll just be a short turnaround. I was having nightmares of my packet ending up circling the country for months on end, or worse yet - lost! Thank you!
