The USCIS has changed the filing locations for two popular family forms: Form I-129F, a Petition for an Alien Fiance(e), and Form I-130, Petition for an Alien Relative. The Petition for an Alien Fiance(e) is used by U.S. citizens to sponsor for foreign fiances. The Petition for an Alien Relative is used by American relatives to sponsor their foreign husband/wife, parent, brother/sister, or child.
This change in filing location reflects an overall effort to transition the filing of benefit forms from USCIS Service Centers to USCIS Lockbox facilities. See attached. Change_Filing_Location_Family.pdf
As a general matter, individuals are advised to always check the USCIS website for the latest in form edition, filing fees and filing locations.
