USCIS – Immigration Forms and Filing Updates

By

In 2010, USCIS has been aggressive in making their system more efficient so that immigration forms can be processed faster.

September 17th, 2010, is the cut-off date for applications to be received at USCIS Service Centers.  Now they must be mailed to the appropriate lockbox facilities.

The new updated forms with mailing instructions are now available for the following forms:

  • I-129F
  • I-130
  • I-140
  • I-526
  • I-539
  • I-817

Always download your immigration forms and instructions directly from the USCIS website or call the USCIS Forms Line at 1-800-870-3676 to order by mail. Here is a direct link: http://www.uscis.gov/forms

USCIS Forms are free, but we are still hearing from our readers, that there are websites that will try to sell immigrations forms. Also, there are website that say “we have the forms you need”. Don’t fall for these scams. USCIS updates their forms and instructions on a regular basis. The use of an older form or mailing them to the wrong address will lead to the rejection of your application.

If you have any questions on registering for marriage in China or filing immigration forms, subscribe and send us an email. We’re always happy to hear from our readers.
