What will happen if I sent my application of asylum to the wrong address?

I meant to send it to an asylum office instead of a service center.

Did you keep a copy? If you did re-execute the copy as an original and re send it to the correct place. You can try tracking it down at the service center as well and see if they forwarded it on. Good luck.
