Paper based AP (I-131)


I am filing paper based AP (I-131).

Need to know to which address I should send the application and the supporting documents to ? Chicago Lock Box OR where I originally filed my family based I-485 in 2002.

Thanks in advance,

EAD renewal


I wanted to renew my EAD and wanted to do it by paper based instead of efiling. The reason is I donot want to go to INS office to take my digital photos. I went to uscis.gov site to download the ead paper based form but the form is not opening and got the message that file is damaged.

Now my questions is where I can get the form for Paper based EAD renewal and what are the supporting doc’s I should send and where to send my I-485 case is filed in Nebraska service center.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Friends,

I am planning to apply for 2nd EAD shortly. My first EAD was approved before we gave the fingerprints, so EAD card has a black box saying "No fingerprints available".

When I do the 2nd EAD renewal, should I give/pay/schedule another fingerprint.

Thanks for your response
