Temporarily living in Canada...which address to use?

Hello! I know I have asked this before, but only got one response and still don't feel confident about what to do. Any advice is GREATLY appreciated. I am a US citizen living in Canada on a temporary work permit. I am about to send in my I-129 to bring my Canadian fiance into the US. I am still receiving my mail at my old address in the states and my former roommate will be writing a letter stating that we will be staying there when moving back to the US. There is also a possibility that I can get back onto the lease there and we can actually live there permanently. I am trying to decide which address to write on my I-129...should I write my old address as my current residence (legal?) or can I put my Canadian address and not screw myself later with the domicile requirement? I listed my current job as the one I am working here in Canada and also stated that I am living here with him temporarily. The only response I got last time was someone telling me to just write the US address on the forms and have my roommate mail them to me here. If I have to write my Canadian address, are they even able to mail the NOA1 to me here in Canada? Finally, I am 90% sure I can mail the form from Canada, but if anyoneknows anything to the contrary... I would really appreciate your input.

You will need to look at proof of domicile since you are currently living in Canada. Proving domicile in the US for the US citizen is a very important thing at the interview. If there is not enough evidence they will hold the visa until proof is provided that the US citizen has domicile in the US.

Yes, thank you I understand that. I am asking which address to put on the application..since I have proof that I am here temporarily and have maintained US domicile, I think I have that covered. I need to know which address to put on the application.

We were in a similar situation (my husband is a dual Canadian/American citizen and was living in Canada when he petitioned for me). He put down his address in Canada for all of the paperwork. Proving domicile was never an issue for us, in fact this was never even brought up -- from what I understand it's more of a CR-1 issue. Good luck!

Really?!? Wow wouldn't that be awesome!! Seriously?? Maybe that was because you did direct consular filing though...we are doing I-129 :(

If you look at Dan and Ali's timeline you will see they did file for I-129 so I suspect their response still applies to you. Good luck!

Sorry about that, I should have been more clear in my post. OBX is right, we did the I-129F and had no problems whatsoever. It was honestly a non-issue. Good luck! :)

Wow! That would be awesome, thanks for your help. Was your interview in Vancouver? That's where ours will be. I am surprised they didn't ask you for proof of domicile..seems like everyone else on here is saying it's a huge deal no matter what. Lovin your picture by the way. More cowbell!
