U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that it has posted a revised Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, Form I-485.
In addition to a revised form, there are new filing locations.
Beginning February 25, 2010, most applicants must submit Form I-485 to a USCIS Lockbox facility, depending on the eligibility category under which they are filing, as provided in the form instructions. USCIS Service Centers will forward all Form I-485 applications to the appropriate Lockbox facility until March 29, 2010. USCIS will accept previous versions of Form I-485 until March 29, 2010.
After March 29, 2010, USCIS will only accept the Form I-485 dated 12/03/09. Any previous versions of the the form that are submitted will be rejected. After the transitional period, the Service Centers will return any incorrectly filed Form I-485 with instructions to send the application to the correct location.
