Address and the I-129F

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am in the military and I don't really have a permamnent physical address, especially to receive mail but I have been told a PO Box is not a valid address for the form, if I were to put my parents address which I was told was ok, how can i receive information from USCIS such as hardcopies and RFE if needed to my PO Box?

If you are going to use your parents' address for it, can you ask them nicely if they could forward any mail from USCIS that arrives for you? That seems like the simplest solution, especially if that's the only mail you're sending to that address in your name. Your parents would know to give you a call that x-item came in, and then forward it on to you.

I dont know where you heard that a PO box was not a good place to receive correspondence from the USCIS?? That is where I had our stuff going. I am in the military too and was deployed during the time I applied for my wife. You can use any mailing address that will be checked. Are you going to be deployed soon or deployed now? If so, you can expedite the case by calling the military helpline. If you need any help with it, let me know. I can tell you what I did for my wife's petition.

I used the G-1145 and got SMS updates while I was in kuwait. Helped me let my buddy know when to check the mail for letters.

As far as physical address where you guys would be living....you can put your parents and just do a change of address once your fiancee is in the US and you have a good physical address where you guys will live.

I think the confusion is between Petition (I-129F or I-130), and Affidavit of support (I-134 or I-864). The petition can have PO BOX, however later the Affidavit of Support needs residence address, to show US Domicile.

I-134 used for K-Visas has "Residing at", this is where sponsor lives, not a mailing address.

I-864 used for CR-1,IR-1 and later for K-Visas adjusting status, has 2 addresses for sponsor, Mailing address, and Residence address.
