The address where you mail in your I-130, Petition for Alien Relative depends upon where you live. A petitioner doesn't have the option of picking any other mailing address other than the one in his own jurisdiction. Opting to mail your I-130 petition to a different location, hoping that it will get processed sooner there is a myth. Sending your petition to any other location than the one mentioned below will only result in processing delays as USCIS then has to resend it to the original intended location.

Please note, the mailing address can also change depending upon if you are filing Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, at the same time as your I-130. This is referred to as concurrent filing. You should consult your immigration lawyer to certify if yo are eligible to file both forms concurrently.

The table below explains where to file your Form I-130.
