1-751- we've moved. A lot.

Hi everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone out there has any advice for me. Putting together the I-751 petition, I'm a bit worried. My husband and I moved 3 times since the original address we would be living at on the I-130 paperwork. Unfortunately, I did not take the time to fully check online if we were required to complete a change of address each time. For some reason I was under the mistaken impression that change of address paperwork only had to be completed if the move was out of state. We did complete the computer forms for my husband for the last 2 moves. However, mine have never been changed (and yes, I was a sponsor on an I-864), but we are now living back where we started.

So when it comes to proving we're together, most of what I have are letters- bank statements and utility bills- from various addresses in both our names. Any idea if it would be better to put this mistake into the cover letter or not?

Any idea if I need to fill out and send in the paperwork I-865? It would be for 3 moves and get them back to the same address they currently have... :unsure:

As long as the current address they have on file is your current one there is not much else you can do now


YMMV

It seems you're misunderstanding the purpose of the I-865 - this form is not for proving the validity of your marriage. It's more or less for tracking down the sponsor on I-864 and seizing their assets in case the beneficiary receives "means tested public assistance" before they become eligible.

I'd say don't draw unnecessary attention to your case by including your omission in a cover letter. They probably don't care so much about your address change as they do about his so long as he has not received "govt assistance". You've done the most important thing which was to notify them of your husband's address for the last 2 moves. And it doesn't make much sense now for you to send in three I-865 forms...especially now that your current address matches what they have on file. And As far as I-865 goes, I'd say let sleeping dogs lie.

Take this advice FWIW. Good luck.
