USCIS made the denial, so you need to send it to the USCIS office that made the denial. It is difficult to understand because it is not explained very well, so I had some difficulty myself when I recently had to do the same thing for a client of mine, but the BIA did not make the decision on the case, so the appeal goes to the USCIS office issuing the decision. And yes, it is better if you submit everything with the appeal. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. I would be happy to answer them for you without additional charge, if not, please do not forget to click accept or I do not get credit for my assistance to you. You are not charged again. If you would like to request me in the future, just put my name on the subject line. Positive feedback for my service to you (not the state of the law as it is) is always appreciated as well as any bonus if you think I deserve it. Thank you.
I just noticed that you have 4 asked questions and no accepts. Remember that we experts only get paid if you click accept and they only pay us from the money that you already deposited so you are not charged again. So please do not forget to click accept.
As to your question, I would have sent everything with the EOIR-29 but it is too late for that but yes, just follow the instructions and if the instructions allow you 30 days after filing the EOIR-29, then follow those instructions. As far as the format of the statement, I would make it look like a brief and make it easy to read as well, double spaced, etc. In this case there isn't an opposing party other than USCIS. So you just send a copy to USCIS and yes, you should send a copy to be stamped in and sent back to you as proof that you filed it. You would need to include a self-addressed stamped envelope for that. Normally I take it in person to the local USCIS office and stamp it in at the window. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thank you.
