Change of address

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Scotland


I've only just received my approval and I'm moving to the US on 17th Dec.

Because myself and my daughter are moving there, my Fiance has just signed a lease on a bigger home therefore the address we put on our documents isn't where we're going to be at (although his former housemate will still be there).

I know we're supposed to inform someone when we move address but I've also been told this is messy. Bearing in mind I have to apply for my SSN, and then a month or so afterwards, my AOS application gets submitted, will it confuse matters completely if I inform of a new address immediately? We can still get mail at the old address because my Fiance's flat mate is still there, I'm just not sure what to do for the best?

The added problem is that although this new house we're moving into will do us for a while, we're still looking to buy so there will be a further move in the future. All very complicated and messy I'm afraid.

Any advice??

Hey, sorry I didn't see this thread earlier - I try to check the country portal to catch the UK questions, but don't always check Scotland... :-/

Anyway, Since the visa and the adjustment of status are two different processes, you don't need to maintain a current address with them. In fact, moving at this point in the process is PERFECT. When you get here and apply for AOS in the new house, just put that as your address. No problem! :)

If you move after the AOS is in process, then you're correct, you'd have to submit a change of address form.
