US Address in 1-130 please help

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

When we filed 1-130 we use the house address of my USC husband's Mom. But now that his brother is offering his mobile house for rent in the USA, we accepted it. My question is, once i got the approval notice for my 1-130, the DS-230 will be the next form to fill up, can we now use the new address of the house where we are going to rent instead of his mom's address. Will it get complicated because on 1-130 it was his mom's US address that we used and now we decided to just live in an apartment which address is different? Pls help

Any ideas/suggestion will be greatly appreciated... :)

address change update is required by uscis w/in 10 days of transfer (ideally), but for your convenience and to avoid confusion, use the one where you think you will receive mail/notices the safest. if somebody will be present at the new address to receive any new mail at any given time, then it's probably safe to report the change. :)

As Zen Den said above, you can change the address through them, but I wouldn't bother. I assume his mom will still be able to forward you guys the mail that comes in right? Does his mom live close to where you two will be living? If she does, then I would just keep everything there. But if she lives far and it'd be a pain to get the stuff, then go ahead and change the address.

On the DS-230 it asks for the address that the two of you will be living at in the US and that you want the SScard to go too. That address can be different than his moms address and THAT'S where you'd put the new address.

Good luck!

Oh and PS. I put my BRAZILIAN address as my address on the I-130......I was approved as well, but that's not the say you were wrong.

Thank you guys...So u mean that it would be fine to change the place of our domicile? On 1-130 the place of domicile we use is his mom's US address and now that we can live in an apartment just beside the house of his mom thats what the address we want to use now. Just thinking that the immigration officer might get confused about changing Domicile address....

I would put down where you will be living when you get there. I would also make a point of mentioning the discrepancy at the interview, and draw attention to the reason why there is a different address on the DS-230. Things happen, circumstances change. Be clear about why. You have nothing to hide! :)

Ok thank you a lot for that advise...Just want to be careful on the information that I will provide although my 1-130 haven't got approved yet but we have to get ready for the correct info to fill up.. Thought if place of domicile would not match up in the form of DS-230 might caused a problem because they also approved the DS-230 after submitting it to them right?

Just attach a letter when you submit the DS-230 explaining why the addresses are different. If they have a problem with it, the worst they will do is tell you to fill out a new DS-230 with the old address (though I think this is highly unlikely). You won't get denied for this! You might also post something in the PI regional forum and ask if anyone else has ever had to change their address after the initial petition approval, and what they did. :)
