    Llynm,

    Your letter and delivery address are okay. Use Priority Mail, $5.75 standard version and add "signature required" option. You will get delivery in 2-3 days.

    Your I-130 package should include one passport-style photo of each of you.

    Two passport-style photos of the applicant should also be included with the I-765 and I-131.

    Proof of employment and 2014 W2 forms should be included with your I-864 documents.

    Copies of your entrance visa should also be included with both I-130 and I-485.

    Fpr one-day delivery, with a courier service or more expensive Priority Mail, used to be referred to as Express Mail, you wil use the FBAS address:
    USCIS
    Attn: FBAS
    131 South Dearborn - 3rd Floor
    Chicago, IL 60603-5517

    One cover letter is all you need, else you risk cluttering the package.

When a U.S. citizen or lawful resident of the U.S. wants to help relatives immigrate to the U.S., the form I-130 is used to declare and establish the relationship of the citizen with the immigrant. The form is also called the Petition for Alien Relative. You need to file a separate form for each relative wishing to apply for immigration/green card. Filing and approval of an I-130 is only the first step in helping a relative immigrate to the U.S.


  • Passport-style photos of your relative as per the specifications by U.S. immigration.
  • Photocopies of legal documents that prove your relationship. For spouse you need the marriage certificate. If either of you were married earlier, you also need proof of the earlier marriage being terminated (divorce documents). For parents/children, you need documentary evidence of the relationship.
  • Documentary proof of your U.S. citizenship or legal permanent status, if you are a green card holder.
  • If applying for a spouse, also fill the G-325a, which is a biographical data form. You need to fill this separately for you and your spouse, four forms each.
  • A cover letter stating the purpose of application and listing the table of contents, including the documents included in the package.
