AOS Change of Address While Petition Pending

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We filed for AOS in December 2008. We moved from our old address in April 2009 and filed AR-11 electronically, Sponsor Change of Address by mail and also notified USCIS by phone. We received all confirmation letters and Notice of Action at our new address but the Green Card and Welcome Letter was sent to our old address even though all previous correspondence came to new address. Fortunately the Post Office forwarded it to the new address. I called USCIS just to check but they said they do not have access to personal information and if we were concerned to make an INFOPASS appointment at our local office which is some distance. I suspect the California computers are slow to update but I am wondering if anyone else had this problem and did they solve it by going to the local office or just assume everything is ok since we have all the documentation. We received Green Card 7/14/2009. Any comments would be appreciated.

Maybe just send in another AR-11 + I-865 indicating SECOND SUBMISSION on top of the forms? You have your GC, so it's not a big deal. But do send the forms again. That, or go for an infopass appointment

Thanks I will take your advice..................................redsilk46

Sorry but until the post today on VJ the AOS was still pending but the question concerned address problems, nothing concerning the receipt of the card itself. Sorry if my question was not clear but thanks for your reply.............redsilk46

I wouldn't be worry. You have confirmation letters that you changed your address. It was USCIS's mistake to send your green card to the old address. Your case is closed and nothing to be worried.

If I were you, I would just call USCIS to tell them about their mistake and ask what you should do, you can also tell them that you can't come on INFOPASS.

However, I think that everything is all right.

For My citizenship, I had filled Form AR-11 (filed both electronically and mailed) and called USCIS as well.

On a infopass appointment, I found that I was not getting any NOAs due to them having my old address.

Hence I would suggest that you go to the field office if possible, and confirm that the change of address made it through.

Not to beat the horse with the same stick, but the moment that you received your greencard, then your petition is no longer pending; hence, at this point you're done with this process; when you start the next process, which is lifting the status of the greencard or whatever is called, then that's a new process, but for that, you start with a new application, which will have your current address. So at this point, there is nothing to worry about and no need to send an update of your address to USCIS, as you finished this process, and you already alerted them of your move. Matter of fact, pretend that you changed your address now, and go to that online change of address form, and it will specifically tell you that if you have no process pending, then you only complete the online form, and you do nothing else. If you were to be in the middle 'of a process', then it will tell you something else, which i forget at the moment what it is, but since you're no longer in the middle of a process, then you do nothing else, but submit the form. ;) As long as you keep uscis informed of your moves, then you're ok, now that your process is finished for this specific aos stage.
