USCIS Changes Form I-829 Receipt Location

Matthew Galati

On August 13, USCIS announced that Form I-829 must now be filed at the Texas Lockbox (where Form I-526 is filed) as opposed to its historical destination at the California Service Center:

On Aug. 13, USCIS changed the filing location for Form I-829, Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status. This form was previously filed at the California Service Center. Now, petitioners must send Form I-829 to a USCIS Lockbox facility. However, the Immigrant Investor Program Office continues to be the adjudicating office. When filing at a Lockbox facility, petitioners have the option to pay the fee with a money order, personal check, cashier’s check, or credit card. Please follow the Where to File and Filing Fee directions on the I-829 page. 

Investors must ensure that their Form I-829 is appropriately filed within 90 days of the expiry of Conditional Permanent Residency, lest they face grave consequences including becoming subject to deportation.  The lawyers at Green and Spiegel have considerable I-829 experience, including the drafting of Condition Removal Templates, investor representation in problematic cases, and even representation in removal proceedings.
