Hi everyone this is the story.  Yesterday we submitted our i-130 in Seoul for processing.  I think we made a mistake in filling out the form.  On Page 2, Part2, Address History it asks for your all the places you have lived for the past 5 years.  Prior to this filling we had gone through and obtained a green card that was subsequently abandoned.  During the time of having the green card we lived in Korea on an i-131 travel permit in order to sell our house.  Should we have listed the green card address used during this time?  We never completed the move to the states and just rotated into and then out of the states after landing at our POE.  Should I have listed the time we had the green card along with the domicile address used even though we were not physically present in the states during the time?

All you have to state is the physical presence in the all the countries with whatever visa you lived within the past 5 years. So if you had GC but lived in Korea that shouldnt be a problem because physical presence is most important.

Thanks for the reply Viinashh

 

I thought so too but after OCD kicked in I thought that having a green card means you are living in the states and that the i-131 is just temparary permission to stay out of the states without penalty.  Sort of like and extended vacation.  Another question is that if this is approved and it moves forward to the ds-260 stage US immigration will have my listed addresses in the states for this time and our address history will not match.  Any insights would be helpful.

Details and Clarification For Anyone Interested:

 

On September 1st 2017 I submitted an i-130 application for my wife.  I now realize I may have made a mistake and wish to ammend my application for her with updated address history information.  The information listed on Page 2, Part 2, Address History, Physical Address #1 and Physical Address#2 may need to be corrected.  

 

Reason:

    

    This mistake came about because I forgot about her abandoned green card from 2016 along with the domicile address used in applying for it.  The reason for not listing this period on the form is mainly due to time actually spent in Korea after she got her green card.  

 

Details:

 

    After my wife cleared immigration at the port of entry we returned to Korea a few days latter she so she could try to sell a house she owns.  When it became obvious the time needed to sell our property was going to take a while we applied for and obtained an i-131 Travel Document - Reentry Permit.  As a result, except in a tempary capasity, she was not physicall present in the USA while holding a green card.   This made it possible for us to continue living in Korea during this lengthy proccess.  The delay in selling propery here in Korea was the cause of her abadoning her green card in 2016.  This coupled with the fact that we have maintained our current address here in Korea thoughout this whole proccess is what caused this inadvertant mistake.

 

Any further insights on what should be done are welcome.

When asked for residence address, you are expected to indicate where you resided.  The US is unlike other countries in that way.  We don't have official or registered addresses.  We live where we live.  Read questions carefully, interpret literally and answer accurately on that basis.  If you didn't, then be prepared to explain the answers you gave and the reasons you gave them, even if you made a mistake or mistakes.
