I-134 Adress Change Necessary?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been working closely with my fiancee recently to try and bring her to the USA on a K1 visa from China. After months of waiting, we feel that she is near the point of receiving her instruction package from the embassy. I would like to prepare to send the necessary documents over to her, but have a question first. I recently moved in order to take a new job in a different state. I am currently staying with family members in the new state, and will most likely rent my own apartment sometime over the next few months. However, the address that I included on my I-129f, was my previous address in my last state. It is also my parent's address, and I feel comfortable sending mail to this location. Should I use my new address in my new state on the I-134 and notify the embassy/USCIS of the address change (Even though I will most likely move to yet another address once my fiancee has arrived), or should I continue to use my parent's address? If I continue to use my parents address, could they deny me since the address is obviously in a different location than where I am working? If I do include my new temporary address on the I-134 and notify the USCIS or embassy, will it slow down the processing further? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks everyone!

Always ensure USCIS has your most current address. Address discrepancies can be a major red flag,

Thanks. Do you know how long it will take to update this information, and whether or not it will slow the process?

You can do it instantly online and it does not impact processing times at all, but if you move state you will be assigned to a different field office and they may not be as quick as your current one, or they may be quicker!
