I-129F Address Mistake!

Hello, I'm new to this site, and obviously new to the whole k1 thing.

I spent a long time filling out my I-129f, as well as the G-325a's. And despite my intense paranoia and careful writing, I put my Zip code for both my ZIP code and APT number on the I-129f. My correct address is on the G-325a.

I saw that they cashed my check... but am I screwed as far as getting my NOA1?? What kind of trouble am I in?? It was already really important that this process go as fast as possible.. I can't believe I made such a careless mistake, even after reading over it a million times.

And, is the only way to check the status of your case is to get your receipt number off of the NOA1?

I'm sweating bullets!

Breathe. :)

Give USCIS a call, explain the mistake, and they can help you from there. Don't worry, they're not going to deny your application or anything. It's a simple mistake that's easily correctable, just give them a call.

Congrats on filing, and welcome! :)

I would recommend using the RFE trick. 1-800-375-5283 Then hit 1,2,2,4,2,1 Then enter receipt number, then 1 a couple more times. You can get the receipt number off the back of the cashed check you sent them. RFE trick gets you in contact with a Customer Service Rep. from California Service Center, they'd probably be able to help/answer you best since that is where your case is located.

I don't think something that minor is the end of the world. Call them and let them know. The procedure should be no different than someone doing an address change. Good Luck and wait for a more important issue to "sweat bullets" over.

Yes, call the main number.

I don't believe the RFE trick is necessary. If I remember correctly, one of the menu items is to report a change of address. It should take you to a live person. I could be wrong, I haven't had to report a change of address.

Thank you everyone for your helpful words!

You are write, I shouldn't sweat bullets over something like this.. I've had bad experience over stupid things like this before, and I guess I let it get to my head. Nevertheless, I feel much more comfortable now and I will call the USCIS tomorrow.

And also, thank you for the tip about finding the receipt number on the back of the check! This helped ease a lot of my frustration! :D

I had to fix an error on my petition as well. make sure you get someone who knows what they are doing. call back till you get someone who can fix it for you. i had to call 3 times before i got someone who knew what they were doing.

Also it take 45 days for the change to go in. just an FYI for ya

Thank you. I'll take that into consideration. :)

I'll keep trying till I can get results. From what I hear, the customer service line can be pretty stressful and unhelpful sometimes if you get someone who doesn't know what they're doing.

even easier than calling.

go to the uscis web site.

pick change of address.

change it online to the correct address.

https://egov.uscis.gov/crisgwi/go?action=coa

it even explains how to get your case # off the back of your check if you have not received noa-1 yet.

Oh cool, didn't realize you could do it online.

Ok cool, I guess that's the easy way! ^^

Hmm... the Case tracker online says this:

On December 20, 2007, we received this I129F PETITION FOR FIANCE(E), and mailed you a notice describing how we will process your case. Please follow any instructions on this notice. We will notify you by mail when we make a decision or if we need something from you. If you move while this case is pending, call customer service. We process cases in the order we receive them. You can use our processing dates to estimate when yours will be done. This case is at our CALIFORNIA SERVICE CENTER location. Follow the link below to check processing dates. You can also receive automatic e-mail updates as we process your case. Just follow the link below to register.

So, does that mean they could have already sent the notice to a wrong address? Or is it as other people say and I might not get this for several weeks? :unsure:

Yep, there's an option from the "main line" for change of address. It's not uncommon for people to move mid-process, or to make a typographical error as you did. Easy to straighten out! :thumbs:

They almost definitely sent it to the wrong address. However, as long as you have the case number from your canceled check, you won't need the NOA1 notice for anything. Your NOA2 notice though, that's the one you definitely want to make sure is sent to the right address.
