Hi everyone! 


I applied for AOS for my mom back in november 2015, we We recently changes our address and even though we notified immigration immediately and they sent us a confirmation of the change. However, they still sent the notice to the old address. Fortunately, the forwarded the mail (I though immigration mail was not allowed to be forwarded?). Anyone has any advice on how we can make sure they send all future correspondence to the right address. I am worried they may send something in the future and we will miss it. Thank you!

arrowQuestions about my responses to I-130 address questions

OK… I'm still not completely comfortable with my answers regarding addresses. I've debated back and forth a few times as to which address to use. Thinking about doing the below as a solution, but, I'm not convinced. Here's what I've got put down. Anyone have some thoughts? Can I do it this way?



Our situation:

I am an expat living in Venezuela. 21 months ago, I put everything in storage in the US, moved to Venezuela, got married, and have been living here with my wife since then. Same address, joint rental contract. I know domicile will soon become a big issue, but I’m not worrying about it right now, I’ll address that at the NVC stage.


We have THREE (3) different addresses available to use.

1. A VENEZUELA physical street address which does not receive mail.

2. A VENEZUELA P.O. BOX address with Mail Boxes Etc.

3. A USA P.O. BOX address with Mail Boxes Etc. that auto-forwards to the box here in Venezuela.


Everything in blue is what the USCIS would actually see.



Question B.2. – Petitioner address





Section B. Information about you

Question 2. Address



I live together with my wife (the beneficiary) in Venezuela. We share the same addresses. The government administered postal mail service here in Venezuela is VERY UNRELIABLE.

We have a physical address (our apartment) which cannot receive mail. To receive mail, we also have a P.O. Box mailing address which forwards mail to a local Mail Boxes Etc. office here in Venezuela.





Does not receive mail.



Auto-forwards all mail to our box here in Venezuela.



Short format address, formatted for a limited size 4x32 character text block.




Can I do that? Can I put down three addresses?

I really want to use my foreign addresses to make it CLEAR I'm living abroad.

But, I want them to send mail to the USA po box in Miami, to maximize reliability...

And of course, since I'm living WITH my wife, it seems to make sense to indicate the same address(es) for questions B.2. and C.2.....


Question C.2. – Beneficiary address


Contents: page 2 is identical to the response above on page 1 for question B.2., I just repeated the answer on a separate page to avoid confusion, and labeled it with the proper page heading and question number.


Question C.18. – Address in the United States where your relative intends to live


I could put down the address of a friend’s house where it is likely we’ll end up for a few months when we get back to the USA, but I’d rather leave that sleeping bear alone until the domicile fun starts at the i864/ds260 stage.


Question C.19. – Your relatives address abroad

My answer: <Our PHYSICAL STREET ADDRESS here in Venezuela.>


Question C.21. – If filing for your spouse, give last address at which you lived together.

My answer: <Our PHYSICAL STREET ADDRESS here in Venezuela.>


Question C.22. – Adjustment of status / consular processing

My answer: Caracas, Venezuela

Ready to send in! Just looking for another pair of (fresh) eyes to look over the general list of packet contents and see if I'm missing anything obvious...


My cover letter, names/addresses removed:

Subject: I-130 petition for my spouse,.

Dear Sir/Madam:


My name is, I am a citizen of the United States. I am filing the included petition I-130 for my spouse,. I am petitioning for her to obtain a residency visa.


Enclosed are the following required and supporting documents for this petition:

  1. Form G-1145, e-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance.
  2. This Cover Letter
  3. Check in the amount of $420 for filing fee.
  4. Petition I-130 and 2 page continuation sheet.
  5. Copy of petitioner’s USA birth certificate
  6. Copy of beneficiary’s Venezuela birth certificate. Original in Spanish, followed by a certified English translation.
  7. Copy of our marriage certificate. Original in Spanish, followed by a certified English translation.
  8. Form G-325A for U.S. Citizen petitioner, and 1 page addendum.
  9. Passport-style color photo of the petitioner.
  10. Form G-325A for NON-U.S. Citizen spouse beneficiary, and 1 page addendum.
  11. Passport-style color photo of the beneficiary.
  12. Evidence of a bona fide relationship:
    1. A short summary of our story.
    2. Apartment rental contract in both our names. Original in Spanish, followed by a certified English translation.
    3. 24 Photographs from our wedding and the last 22 months together, labeled by date and occasion if relevant.


Please note carefully our address below, as we both live together in Venezuela. Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone, email, or at the address below. Phone is strongly preferred, due to the slow and intermittent nature of postal mail service here in Venezuela.


Thank you,


_____________________________                       ______________



POSTAL BOX MAILIING ADDRESS. Shortened address, formatted for a limited size 4x32 address block.



PHYSICAL ADDRESS. Does not receive mail.



I included a 2 page continuation sheet for the I-130, 1 page per question, each page signed, for the questions regarding current address.

My PO BOX address here is obscenely long, so i included a continuation sheet for the address question, listing physical address which cannot receive mail, PO BOX address, shortened 4x32 character PO BOX address, and a very short note explaining the purpose of the continuation and its contents.


I know i don't have to send in her birth certificate... but i have it... so I figured might as well.


The bona fide relationship part is a tad thin... but, I'll try to dig up more for the NVC stage if needed. Hoping this is enough to get through USCIS. We live together outside the U.S., but there's almost nothing to put a joint name on except the lease.

arrowCopied I-130 with an ORIGINAL signature?

After numerous delays, the packet is finally done. it's assembled, ready to go in the mail tomorrow morning. I'm sitting here reviewing EVERYTHING with a fine toothed comb for the umpteenth time. And then...


Make TWO copies of the entire package before you send it in. This includes the money orders too. You want to have a perfect replica of the package you are sending in. All Forms that you submit must be originals with original signatures. Supporting Evidence that you submit may be photocopies. Retain ALL original supporting Evidence since the USCIS has the right to check them by issuing an RFE (Request For Evidence). If you receive an RFE, follow the direction exactly, and make two copies of what you sent back. During any future interviews the USCIS may also want to examine the original supporting evidence.


What I have packed and ready to send out is a photocopy of an unsigned, handwritten I-130 form, with an ORIGINAL SIGNATURE added to the photocopied form. I did this because i had to use whiteout tape in a few places to cover up typos.


I KNOW the signature has to be original. But what about the actual form? is a photocopy of the form acceptable, as long as the signature (and date) is original???


I CAN send the "original" I-130... but it's got various whiteout spots......


PS: Same question for the G-325A :)
