What's the process for if the petitioner changes residences during K1 application process?

I have been looking to buy a house for some time. The K1 petition has my current address and it's all up to date. If I do find a house that I want to buy before everything is approved and my fiancee is here, what's the process for notifying the USCIS about my move? How will it affect the application process since current housing will not be up to date? is there a form to fill out to send to them or to the service center that my petition is currently at?

This. I moved during my k-1 process and just updated my address on the USCIS website. You will then get a confirmation letter from USCIS. Pretty straight forward and was one thing that went smoothly for us.

Although the link to change your address is here:

Is the process similar for a beneficiary change of address? I'm finishing up my I-129F now, but there's likelihood that my fiancé will not only change address during the long processing time, but change country of residence (she's on a long term work assignment in a country other than the one of her citizenship). It all depends on how long the process takes, and how long she can extend the work assignment, which isn't completely predictable. Of course, this address determines the embassy her case will be referred to as well. I'm having a hard time predicting where she will be for use in the I-129F.

I checked out the link usmsbow posted, and it seems limited to changes of address within the United States.

I'm replying because I hope you get an answer! My fiance is Australian but is working in Indonesia until December. If our petition takes longer than that, they will send him back to Australia and we'll have to change the consulate he'll process through.

Thanks for the bump Beverrlly. Hopefully your timeframe will prevent you from needing to change consulate location. In our case, we are likely placing an address in her home country for the K-1 processing, even though she doesn't currently live there. It just seems safer in case this process drags on (as she can always fly back).

For what it's worth, the following forum posts seem to imply that depending on where you are in the process, a call or a letter could be all you need to change embassy/ consulate location:

Sorry to the OP for taking the discussion a little off track.
