Service Center Question

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I for the life of me can not find the link to find what Service Center I mail out immigration paperwork (I 130, etc) to. 
I live in Ohio....I believe it was a Chicago address but now I can't find it.
Anyone?

Thanks!!

Should I send through USPS or do the Courier & Express Mail though?

its in the instructions.

 

I think most people are sending USPS cause it goes to a PO Box and works better in this scenario.

Generally I wouldn't use them.

I sent it USPS Priority mail, for me it was the same as overnight being the day I was shipping and location.

But I sent it certified with tracking and return receipt so I could see exactly when it was delivered and have proof of delivery.
