I-130 Petition-Filing Locations for Family-Based Green Card

Make a photocopy of the entire package (including checks) before you send the petition. Retain all originals, because the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) may want to check them by issuing an RFE (Request For Evidence).

You should file it at the appropriate USCIS Lockbox facility, depending upon your location. Do NOT send it to the USCIS Service Center.
