U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) today announced changes to the filing procedure for employment-based applications for lawful permanent resident status. Starting on July 24th, all applicants filing an Application to Adjust Status or Register Permanent Residence (Form I-485), based on a pending or approved Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker (Form I-140), also referred to as a “standalone filing”, should mail that form directly to the Nebraska Service Center. Applicants should file accompanying forms (e.g., Form I-131, Application for Travel Document, and/or Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization) at this same centralized location.
