  1. Hey folks, Apologies I was unable to locate the discussion spot for this (please feel free to move to the correct forum) Getting ready to file the Removal of Condition I-751 and have the following dilemma, would like to know from someone who has been through the exact same method to see if it had worked for them without any issues. I do not wish to use USPS for obvious reasons, however for payment purposes I'm providing a completed form: G-1450, Authorization for Credit Card Transactions Was wondering if it will work if I used this form G-1450 and sent using FedEx to the following address: USCIS Attn: I-751 2501 S State Hwy 121 Business Suite 400 Lewisville, TX 75067 Am I correct to understand that this address is also a Lockbox facility and will be able to process card payment form? Thanks very much!
  2. After initial arrival to lockbox when does the clerk open the package to cash the check? The day it arrives or a few days later?
  3. Hello, I have a question about lockbox filing location. Me and my wife currently live Overseas (Japan). I looked up the correct lockbox, however, I am currently in the U.S. and will be sending the application from the U.S. I often travel to and from Japan (1-2 times a year). Currently I have my mailing address as my Parents physical address in the U.S., but my living address in Japan.... (I live in Japan but visit the U.S. often) Would it be easier to have my mailing address via Japan or U.S.? Does this affect processing times? Thank you
  4. My application package reached the Phoenix Lockbox on Feb 8th, 2018. But as of now, I did not receive any SMS/email notification through my form G-1145, no receipt notice, nor did USCIS encash the enclosed check. USCIS says to wait for 30 days before contacting the lockbox. If I contact Lockbox support, they take 15 days to answer. I have already sent them an email a week ago, even when its not 30 days yet. But do they really take 30 days to process the application? Is there anyone else here who has recently sent their I-485, I-765 and I-131 application package to Phoenix with a similar timeline? I will update here once I receive a notification, or have any update on my case. Thanks.
  5. Hi Guys, So I sent my AOS, EAD, AP on March 30th with priority to Chicago lock box. Ive been tracking it every day and it’s been saying “available for pick up” I have checked today and now it says “Delivery attempt - action needed) please see screen shot I have taken from USPS tracking. Any ideas what could have happened? Has this happened to anyone else? So annoyed! Something always happens to me. Haha!
  6. Originally was planning to file for DCF as my husband has been residing here in the Philippines for 3 years. However due to a family emergency, he had to go back to the US to help his mom recover before we were able to file DCF here in the Philippines. We sent an email to uscis regarding our situation and requesting if we can still file DCF or request for an expedited process once we file our application. Below was their reply: "If the US citizen petitioner does not reside in the Philippines, he cannot file Form I-130 with our office. Please refer to our previous email (below) regarding the residency requirements for filing with our office. If your US citizen husband is presently residing in the U.S. we strongly encourage him to file your form I-130 petition to the Lockbox directly. The reason we encourage the lockbox facility is because it provides a direct filing and whereby payment transaction should be easier. To specifically address your question pertaining to the filing for a spouse, please visit the USCIS website at https://www.uscis.gov/i-130 - form and instructions. When filing the Form I-130 petition, you may wish to consider requesting that the petition receive expedited processing by attaching a written request and proof of the need to expedite to the submitted I-130 petition. Please note that all expedite requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and granted at the discretion of office leadership. For more information, please visit the USCIS website at https://www.uscis.gov/forms/expedite-criteria." My question is, what is a lockbox facility and how is it different from the regular spouse visa filing? How long does it take? Is it like DCF? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  7. Hello. My spouse and I are mailing the I-130 petition today and were certain that because we both live abroad we were supposed to mail it to the Chicago lockbox. But since our mailing address is in California, shouldn't we be sending it to the Phoenix lockbox? Thank you so much for your attention and help in advance!
