Hi all, Just wanted some advice we are planning to move to sunny Florida soon (in the next few months) or sooner and I have all the forms needed for immigration but I'm not sure If its best to leave it until we actually move to apply or just apply the now then move then contact the immigration office to change our address. I currently cannot get a bank account here in Indiana as they all want social security number or something else which I don't have, also the apartment complex we live at now won't allow my name on the lease as they couldn't check my criminal record etc. And I know that it would make the interview with the immigration officer alot easier If I did have these following things in a joint name with my wife and I probably can put my name on the lease when we find a place in Florida and I'm sure there are other banks down that way that will allow me to be on a joint bank account with the wife.

So should I wait until we move and get my name on a lease and joint bank account etc then apply or should I just apply the now then get all them things sorted out, I'm not sure how the change of address process goes.

i had this same problema couple of months ago. my husband and I were moving to a different place and we were in the process of doing our AOS. if you do move you must always notify them with the form AR-111. its just a form stating that you are moving and gives your old address and new one. if you decide to move very soon do it now if you know your address so they would get it in their systems faster. but you also need to watch out sometimes things get lost in the mail or they send it to the wrong place. i was very fortunate that didnt happen to me but that happened in the past. file the form and everything should be good:D
