USCIS Update: Revised Filing Addresses for Forms I-800 and I-800A
WASHINGTON— U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today announced new addresses for prospective adoptive parents to submit a Petition to Classify Convention Adoptee as an Immediate Relative (Form I-800), and Application for Determination of Suitability to Adopt a Child from a Convention Country (Form I-800A). This filing address change takes effect immediately.
U.S. citizens seeking to adopt a foreign child under the Hague Adoption Convention must submit Forms I-800 and I-800A and all supporting documents and fees to the following addresses:
U.S. Postal Service
Express Mail and Courier Service deliveries
Lewisville, TX 75067
The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) will immediately forward mail from the Lewisville Post Office to the new post office in Dallas until December 31, 2009. After that date, the USPS will forward any applications sent to the Lewisville Post Office box through normal channels which will likely delay receipt at the USCIS Dallas Lockbox Facility. Applicants filing Forms I-800 and I-800A through Express mail and courier services should note changes to the Lewisville street address.
Applicants filing at the USCIS Dallas Lockbox facility may elect to receive an email and/or text message notifying you that your application has been accepted. You must complete an E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance (Form G-1145), and attach it to the first page of your application.
