Forwarding address for Green Card

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

My son-in-law has just been approved for his greencard. They have recently moved and he is afraid if he files an address change with USCIS, it will delay his card coming in the mail. He wants to just let it be forwarded from the old address along with his other mail. I feel he is risking it being sent back as some mail is marked to not forward. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks in advance.

does he have any 'usps forward order' in place with usps ?

If so, he won't get the greencard via the 'forward'.

re: the old address - if no forward order -

anyone there to retrieve his postal mail, forward to him in repackaged mailer ? or no ? (landlord, friend, room mate, etc )


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Mail from the government IS NOT forwarded and this include USCIS of course. He either needs to change his address, or have someone collect his mail for him.

Just a word of warning, my green card was approved months ago and we changed address, long story short we still haven't received it. I filed the correct address changes numerous times, have been to two infopass appointments yet somehow they managed to send it to the wrong address twice just to have it returned. I have been warned that if it's sent to the wrong address a third time, despite all my efforts to assist them in doing something right, I will have to pay for a replacement card. It sounds like a con, and it probably is - but I can't prove that. The system the USCIS employ is terrible, before the card is shipped make sure you file an infopass appointment and make sure they have the correct address on file, otherwise you're in for months of suffering. Good luck!

sammii - this would be excellent 'domain' for a us congressman or us senator - their immigration liason staffer - to step in and fix all this silliness. Seriously.
