Form I-485 and Form I-140 may be filed together at the USCIS Dallas Lockbox facility.

If you are requesting Premium Processing for Form I-140, you must also file Form I-907, Request for Premium Processing Service. Refer to the Filing Instructions on Form I-907 if you want to file Forms I-485, I-140, and I-907 together. Do NOT file an application for Premium Processing at a USCIS Lockbox facility.

Petitioners filing Form I-485 based on a pending or approved Form I-140, should file their application at the USCIS Phoenix or Dallas Lockbox facility.
