which i751 receipt number is the right one for changing address

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Well my husband and I just moved to a new house and I did change my address online last night. when I was doing my online AR-11 change of address form, I was confused about the receipt numbers.

From extension letter (NOA1) I got a number WAC*********2

From Biometrics letter (NOA2) I saw there are two receipt numbers on, one is the same number I got from NOA1, the other one is WAC*********9.

I always use WAC*********9 as the one check my status on USCIS website, because WAC******2 doesn't work.

But when it comes to AR-11, WAC*****9 doesn't work, and WAC*******2 worked.

Am I doing the right thing?

My husband will mail I-865 today for change of his address.

Am I doing the right thing?? If not, what should I do?

Same thing happened to us. We moved while my wife's I-751 (Removal of Conditions) was pending. Filed the AR-11 online, and had trouble changing the address on the I-751 online since I-751 was not listed on the list of forms. Did you get a service request number? I don't remember if we got a service request number, but a contractor had to manually update the address for the I-751 case.

We put it in on a Saturday night. Address in the master database updated that night, and a contractor updated the address on the I-751 case on Monday. Received approval email Tuesday (the day after the contractor updated the address). Called USCIS on Friday morning and spoke with a level two agent (actual Immigration Officer) who said the new address is listed at the alien's address (master database) and for the case so that is where the mail is going. Received the approval letter in the mail at the new address later in the day (still Friday). Received the new GC the next day at the new address. Received a letter two days later (Monday) saying the service request to change the address on the I-751 was completed on the prior Monday (two days after the request was entered).

I don't know if the change of address trigger the attention of the file. However, based on predictions it was about the time that the file should of been review by an officer anyway.

BTW: Unless they changed it in the last 2.5 years, in terms of the I-865 your husband should receive a receipt in the mail from the service center showing no charge and his address on the I-864 has been updated. The level one CS reps told me that they didn't know.


Here is the information regarding the cases for my in-laws (wife, their daughter, is the petitioner under the IR-5 category, Parents of a USC):

Submit I-130 (2 petitions) to USCIS on May 30, 2013

USCIS approved the cases on March 10, 2014.

Received notice online from USCIS the cases were sent to NVC on March 17, 2014.

NVC received the cases on March 28, 2014

The case numbers were created on Monday, April 28.

We received the numbers by phone on Friday, May 2.

DS-261 became available on both cases late in the evening on Friday, May 2. Both DS-261 filed on Saturday, May 3.

Received emails to my wife regarding AOS at around 8am on Wednesday, May 7. At the same time received emails that were cc of letters sent to my in-laws. However, the date of all of the letters was Monday, May 5.

Received emails regarding the Immigrant Visa Fee at around 11:15am on Wednesday, May 7. IV fees became available online at around 1pm on Wednesday, May 7. Date of invoice was Tuesday, May 8.

Paid all the fees on Wednesday, May 7 at around 1:15pm.

All fees marked as paid and DS-260 become available sometime late on Friday, May 9.

Dropped off IV and AOS packages (in two different envelopes - 1 for AOS and 1 for IV documents) at the local post office at around 2pm on Saturday, May 10.

Submitted DS-260 (for both cases) around 10am on Sunday, May 11.

Both document packages received by NVC on Monday, May 12 (according to Post Office Tracking - one around 1pm and the other around 4pm. Don't know why they got separated.)

Received checklist email for both cases at 4pm on Thursday, June 12 regarding the IV civil documents

Wife called NVC in the afternoon of Friday, June 13 to inquire about the checklist. Told by a representative they are normal and automatic and not to worry. AOS under review. Call back after Tuesday, June 24.
Received a checklist for my father-in-law on Monday, June 16. NVC reviewed his AOS paperwork, but waiting for the documents the requested the week before.

Wife called NVC in the morning of Tuesday, June 17. Told by the agent they don't have the document requested for dad, and they don't have the AOS package for her mom.

Put in a request with our Senator to get more information. Response was mother-in-law is documentary complete and father-in-law was in document review for the military document.

Wife called NVC on the morning of Tuesday, July 1 and spoke with a supervisor regarding her dad's military document. Supervisor said she would look into it.

Supervisor called us and left a voicemail on the morning of Wednesday, July 9 and stated they have located my father-in-law's military documents. Case sent back to document review.

Per conversation with an agent, the expedited request originally requested by email on July 7, was sent to the Embassy on Thursday, July 10.

Received by postal mail on Thursday, August 21 from our Senator regarding the response of another inquiry. Still the same.

Early in the morning on Friday, August 22:

Wife calls the Embassy and was told the IV section doesn't accept calls, and was given a number in the states that turned out to be scheduling assistance for NIV interviews.

Called NVC as soon as they opened and was told the Embassy denied the expedite request, but the case was completed by NVC on Monday, August 18. Wife inquired about interview scheduling, and was given some good information.

At 5 PM on Thursday, September 11, received the interview letters. Interview is scheduled for the morning of October 9.

Mother-in-law approved. Father-in-law placed in Administrative Processing due to follow-up TB test.

CEAC stated ISSUED for my mother-in-law on October 15. DHL had the package for pick up on October 17 but called the wrong number. Package picked up on October 27.

On December 11 mother-in-law received a phone call from the Embassy that the medical is back for my father-in-law and to DHL his passport to them. Passport sent on December 12.

On December 18 CEAC updated to ISSUED for my father-in-law. My wife is happy!!!! Embassy said they gave it to DHL on December 19

Due to a DHL delay the package did not become available for pick up until December 24. USCIS Immigrant Fee paid the same day.

POE: JFK Terminal 1 - December 26, 2014 - They are finally here!!!

Took them to a local SSA office to get SSN on January 6, 2015. Cards received on January 10, 2015.

Green Cards received by priority mail on January 23, 2015 (four weeks after arrival).

Both went to motor vehicles and got state issued ID cards on April 11, 2015.

Well, I guess you have different situation.

1. I did have I-751 as an case option.

2. I got confirmation email with AR-11 confirmation number and service request number at the same time.

my husband will send his i865 today or tomorrow, i don't know if it will affect on anything?

I do have another question for you: which receipt number did you use???????

I am a December filer, hopefully to hear something back soon.
