Chicago Lockbox

I don't know that we know the answer as to which location will be issuing the NOA-1s. The I-130 applications received after 7/29 at VSC and 8/30 at CSC were sent to Chicago for data entry. The 2 service centers are still responsible for adjudication of the file. NC, I assume, is processed by VSC, so if you filed after 7/29 and your file went to VSC, it is now located at Chicago (or will be located at Chicago shortly), who will do the data entry and return the file to VSC for processing.

I don't know that we can determine exactly where the files are right now and where they will sit until someone caught in this mess, receives a NOA-1 and posts where it came from.

I am sure that my file was in CSC because i spoke with officer by phone and he said that if you originaly filed to TSC than your file went to CSC.

I assume that files sent after 12/03 will be adjudicated by service center indicated in announcment. Those who sent before 12/03 to TCS will still be processed by CSC.

TSC doesn't adjudicate I-130s. Only CSC and VSC process I-130s. Any I-130s sent to TSC or NSC are forwarded to CSC or VSC for processing and I am fairly sure that NC applications are sent to VSC.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is revising the locations for filing Form I-130 that are currently listed in the form’s instructions posted on this website. Until new instructions are posted, the following information applies:

Effective December 3, 2007, all petitioners filing stand-alone Form I-130 are encouraged to submit their petitions to the Chicago Lockbox instead of a USCIS Service Center. I-130 petitions filed with the Chicago Lockbox will be routed to, and adjudicated at, the appropriate USCIS Service Center. This routing will be based on the petitioner’s place of residence in the United States.

Petitioners who reside in AK, AZ, CA, CO, Guam, HI, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, MI, MN, MS, MT, Nebraska, NV, ND, OH, OR, SD, UT, WA, WI, or WY are encouraged to file their stand-alone Form I-130s with the Lockbox using the following address:

USCIS

P.O. Box 804625

Chicago, IL 60680-1029

Petitioners who reside in AL, AR, CT, DL, FL, GA, KY, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, NH, NJ, NM, NY, NC, OK, PA, Puerto Rico, RI, SC, TN, TX, VT, VA, U.S. Virgin Islands, WV, or District of Columbia are encouraged to file their stand-alone Form I-130 with the Lockbox using the following address:

USCIS

P.O. Box 804616

Chicago, IL 60680-1029

While the changes are effective December 3, 2007, any Form I-130 filed with the Service Center will not be rejected; it will be forwarded to the designated Chicago Lockbox. Petitioners are encouraged, however, to begin using the designated Lockbox filing address on the effective date in order to avoid processing delays. The revised form and filing instructions will be posted online as soon as they are available.

VSC is handling cases for people who live in the VSC covered states. Everyone else TSC NSC included go to CSC. CSC is handling all cases from all centers that no longer do processing except for VSC because they do still do the processing. Once in a while someone from the VSC vicinity will also be sent to CSC or vice versa for no explainable reason. It has happened on VJ in the past.
