USCIS Updates Forms I-360 and I-485; Both Forms Now Require New Filing Locations

This week, USCIS announced new filing locations for two forms that have now been revised and updated. The new Form I-360, the Petition for Amerasian, Widow(er), or Special Immigrant, was posted yesterday and is dated 12/30/09. No previous versions of this form will be accepted 30 days after publication. The new Form I-485, the Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, was also posted yesterday and is dated 12/03/09.

Starting February 25, 2010, applicants filing a Form I-360 should submit the form either with the Vermont Service Center, the Nebraska Service Center or a USCIS Lockbox facility. If applicable, USCIS will forward incorrectly filed forms to the correct location until March 29, 2010. After that date, incorrectly filed forms may be returned to the petitioner with instructions to send the form to the correct location. Previous versions of this form will be accepted until March 29, 2010. After that date, previous versions will be rejected.

Starting February 25, 2010, the majority of applicants filing Form I-485 should submit the form to a USCIS Lockbox facility, based on the eligibility category under which they are filing (more information regarding this is available in the revised form’s instructions). USCIS will forward all incorrectly filed forms up to March 29, 2010. After that date, incorrectly filed forms will be returned to the petitioner with instructions to send the form to the correct location. Previous versions of this form will be accepted until March 29, 2010. After that date, previous versions will be rejected.
