Dear IV Members,

Last week I received a copy of ‘Approved I-140’ using Freedom of Information Act. I took almost 7 months to get requested information. Following are the steps to use FOIA:

1. Write a cover letter (Sample attached)
2. Complete Form G-639 (Sample form ‘Freedom of Information Act - G-639 - Form.pdf’ attached)
3. Write your I-140 Receipt # in ‘Column 4’.
4. Important: Make sure you complete ‘Column 7’ or you will be asked to send you application again.
5. For ‘Column 8’ you can sign it yourself under ‘Executed in US’ (No need to use Notary)
6. Send this form to:
USCIS National Record Center
FOIA Division
P.O. Box 648010
Lee Summit, MO 64064-5570

I received copy of approved I-140 last week (Copy of 1st page is attached). You can check status of FOIA request at FOIA Request Status Check (http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.8d416137d08f80a2b1935610748191a0/?vgnextoid=f3a2ba87c7a29110VgnVCM1000004718190aRCR D&vgnextchannel=f3a2ba87c7a29110VgnVCM1000004718190a RCRD).

I hope above information will be useful for others who want to use FOIA.
