Change of Address

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I need your feedback/ comments regarding my situation.

 

My conditional GC expires on April 11, 2018 so I understand I am eligible to submit my ROC paperwork on January 11, 2018. 

 

The thing is my husband and I are currently leaving in an apartment and our lease ends on February 28th. We are going to move to a house after our lease ends.

 

Which one's better?

  • Submit the application on January 11th and file a change of address immediately? Or
  • Wait until we move in to the new house on March 1st so we don't risk the chance of missing any mail from USCIS?

 

Looking forward to your insights!

File whenever you want to, then file the AR-11 online as soon as you definitely have secured the new address and have access to it (and are certain that it won't fall through)

Set up USPS mail forwarding when you leave

 

 

Given current 751 processing times, waiting an additional two months to file isn't the most sensible course of action IMHO.

You should obtain a PO box at the Post Office for the Mailing address - Then list your Physical Address as it will be on January 11 and later on do an AR11 when you move in March-

Also get USPS Informed Delivery app on your phone and watch what mail gets delivered when....

Appreciate your input! Thanks a lot :) I'll file this January then. 

When you fill in the AR11 don''t forget the i-865 sponsors change of address too. I didn't know there was such thing until I found myself changing my address and some fellow vjer pointed it out to me. It isn't really mentioned on the USCIS site, so it's easy to overlook.
