A: Yes. I recommend you file as soon as possible to get a place in line. It may not be processed quickly, but there's no reason not to file.

A: You can file the FORM I-130 at a lockbox of the USCIS depending on your residence. Please see the filing instructions in the USCIS website for the correct address for filing.

Relative petitions are not filed at a local field office of the USCIS which are currently closed to the general public.
