@Haydnator here's the USCIS payment by credit card information = https://www.uscis.gov/forms/fingerprints/pay-a-credit-card

Ok Thanks! I had seen that website before . I was just confused by their language. They were saying only send if you are sending to a lockbox location, but it looked like the only addresses you could sent to were lockbox locations. That clears that up.

And another FYI if you have not already mailed it out ask for a BOX not the envelope several petitions have gotten damaged and sent back lately using the envelope. The box gives you and extra layer of protection.

Good idea, what with all of those papers jostling around, a box is a better way to go. :thumbs:
