So this morning i awoke to the welcome letter from the NVC for my wife's I-130. But to my dismay and now my panick attack..., the USCIS never updated my wife's address and country from Ireland, back to the United Kingdom. They updated my address correctly back from Ireland to the States. As my case number is now assigned to the wrong consulate, and my wife no longer resides in Ireland.. i am completely freaking out. I am in desperate need of advice, obviously it is the weekend and i cannot call the NVC. But is this going to break my application? will we have to go through the whole process again? Is there a way to update the NVC with her current address and get the case reassigned to the UK consulate? I am worried because she returned to the UK almost 4 months ago, i called the USCIS and told them to please update both my and my wife's addresses. I got a confirmation, but apparently they only updated mine so now i am completely freaking out.


Thanks to anyone who has any info on this!

No big deal.  Call the NVC on Tuesday and get them to change your wife's address and embassy.  They will assign a new case number.  They may tell you its okay to still submit fees etc. The USCIS never changes overseas addresses unless theyre changing them to the USA for a petitioner.

Thanks for the reply. I will call first thing Tuesday.  Hopefully it won't be overly complicated, or add too long to the process. 

By chance do you know if I have to speak to a supervisor? 

Generally not, and it can take a couple weeks.
