AR-11

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Not sure where I was to post this, but here goes the question.

My husband and I just moved. But he is mobilized and was able to come back to the new home this past weekend, and our only chance to mail in his sponsor address change form was this Sat. so we mailed in my AR-11 at the same time. Problem is that we got to the post office just as they were getting ready to close, and I wanted to send it with a tracking number (esp. as almost everything part of this immigration process has had glitches from errors), so I sent it priority mail, thinking I would get a tracking #, but nope, no tracking #.

Is there a way to check if they have recieved it??? If it was lost, what happens if it goes past the 10 days of notification window? I am stressing, as I always use FedEx, but ugh, their office would have been closed by the time we got to it, and I have no means of tracking the envelopes.

Please help :wacko::crying:

I had done one at POE. Didn't look like a AR-11 or whatever. The fella at customs made me fill out my new address on a form.

I filled out a AR-11 online as well.

Hi Tbaygrrl.

I filled out an AR-11 by mail (USPS mail with delivery confirmation) when I moved last year, as I couldn't file online, due to my 'unique' address situation, but I never got a reply back....:angry: I'm still waiting for that reply.... :whistle:

And chances are, I don't think that they give replies for AR-11s (at least from my experience).

But I was too busy with moving and taking care of a newborn baby and recovering from childbirth, so I didn't bother chasing them about it. Besides, I was going to file my N-400 shortly after that, so I informed them again of my address change. As well, during my N-400 interview, I again pointed out the address change, and evidence that I sent in my AR-11...

Interestingly enough, my husband/sponsor got a reply back for his I-865....

So if your husband sent in the I-865, he'll get a reply back for that too...

And if your husband's address is updated, then more likely than not, yours will be updated too...

Worse-case scenario, you can always call the USCIS 1-800 number (aka mis-information line) to see if they updated your address and/or make an infopass appointment to make sure they have your current address on file...

I don't recommend that you fill out an AR-11 online, as you sent your address change by mail already, and they even mention that they don't want it online if you sent it in by mail

Lol..Apparently they can't handle more than one AR-11 form being sent in....

Hope this helps. Happy moving! Good luck with the rest of your journey.

I filled mine out online and there was no confirmation aside from something that said it was submitted. I didn't print off a copy or anything, I just took that message as prof enough. My inlaws live at my old address so it's not like anything will get lost if it gets sent there.

When we did my husbands for the I-864... I think it's called like an I-865? USCIS actually mailed us confirmation that they received and processed the change of address.

Yeah, I used my in-law's address on the DS230 so if it goes there it won't be a problem as such.

So my husband has to file the I-865 as well?

YES :yes: as your sponsor he needs to submit this form and it can only be done by mail


Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?

Same here too...:thumbs:....

Lol..On top of that, I included the USPS tracking info and a photocopy of my AR-11 on my N-400 application and mentioned that to them in-person during my N-400 interview afterwards too....So no worries, there...lol.....

To be exact, this is what I included in my N-400 application cover letter, in regards to my AR-11 and I-865...

Yet another "reminder" to tell them that I changed my address...... :thumbs:

Enclosed (for Ant’s N-400 application) please find additional photocopies of:

68-70) AR-11 (Change of Address for Ant) and I-865 (Sponsor Address Change for D) Application Forms

71-72) AR-11 to London, KY and I-865 to St. Albans, VT, USPS Mail Delivery Receipts

73) Receipt Notice of Action of I-865 Sponsor Address Change

Note: Notice of Action/Receipt of AR-11 not received. Regardless, I assume that the USCIS has done their part in updating my address, based on what I've sent.

Lol...Yet another reason to point out how incompentent they are..... :whistle:

Good luck with the address changes and the rest of your journeys too.

Ant
