Fiancee change of address

21 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

HI V.J members --I have a querry . My Fiancee has moved to another address since I filed a 129F petition for her . My question is --Do I have to file an AR-11 with the USCIS to notify them of the address change of my fiancee or is the adress change just applies to me --the US petitioner ? Did it happen to anyone here on this site --what did u do ??

I assume you have filed and are waiting on an NOA1 or NOA2 currently and that your fiancee is living in her home country? If so, just write a letter to the service center your case is at that has your name, your case number, her name, old address, new address, and be sure to SIGN AND DATE! Mail it off to the service center to be filed with your case. You will get a letter in the mail in a week or two confirming the change. And you will probably get a "touch" :) You don't have to file an AR-11 unless your fiance is living in the US. I have had to do this twice now, no hitches.

I didn't change my girl's address until after her file was at the Embassy. I gave the info to the girl at the scheduling center. Once you go through the online scheduling you can update her info then.

I didn't want anything delaying the I-129f at the USCIS since it is the longest to complete. They don't provide a form from the USCIS at that point maybe for a reason.

Wrong, Don't do that

This (above) was the most important bit -

don't muck about with any address change until the scheduling is ready.

If it was China, then I suggest using the P3 shortcut method at http://www.visajourney.com/wiki/index.php/GUZ_P3_Shortcut

but you can factor this technique to something similar, yes? For China, this isn't scheduling timetick, it's 'casefile opened' timetick.

PI IV Unit does wonky stuff for packet 3 - usually can send all in without 'waiting' on guidance from the IV unit - so can include the updated address AT THAT ONE SINGULAR POINT IN TIME, with a cover letter as well (IMO).


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

What if she is moving from another country to her mother land. Will that applies? I think my fiancee wants to go back home. So we are wondering if we should let USCIS knows now or what.

I would think you will need to report the change of address since on the I-129f, you entered the Embassy where your fiancee will be applying for the visa. not sure if it's best to report the change to USCIS before receiving NOA2, or after to NVC.

So it is best to wait till the K1 reaches the embassy and then update her address, so they mail the packet to her new address. This is possible to do online, correct..?

So many things to do now..since we got the NOA2 approved today.

OP

Actually, this is the maybe the BEST idea to have it done, as we just did this late December. We tried the letter, and got nothing. We also had to change the Embassy that was handling the visa interview, as she moved countries (so this applies to you that fiance is wanting to move back to mother country)also. We learned after sending many letters and even have delivery confirmation. What we ended up doing was calling them, asking for a level two supervisor and they did it right there on the phone. We told them that we had delivery confirmation and that they did nothing. Everything was doe within 10 minutes, even with trying to tell them Filipino addresses. We will give details if you email us. Hope this helps.

Wait until the petition is approved. No need to change it sooner. Trust me, the mail is so slow in PH and if your Johnny on the spot you will have already contacted the Embassy call center about 20 times asking if your paper file has arrived and when can you schedule. :thumbs:
