I-30 question: My current residence is not our intended residence

Hi,

What a great help this site has been! I hope that after I get further along I can help those just starting out, but as of now I come to you all for assistance.

My husband and I were just married in Jamaica on April 9 (after 3.5 years of long-distance dating--I'm sure you can all relate!) and are in the process of filling out our forms for the I-30. He is a UK citizen and I am a US citizen. I currently live with a roommate in Washington DC. I know, it's not ideal to be newlywed and living with a roommate who is NOT my husband! But I'm saving a lot of money this way, and since the visa process could take up to a year, that's a lot of savings if I stay put until we get further along. My problem is in filling out the I-30, it asks our intended residence in the US. My lease clearly states that I am renting a room intended for one person, and my husband and I have no intentions of staying at my current place. One we get closer to his visa approval, I plan on finding us an apartment of our own. How can I make that clear, or will that be a red flag? Listing my current residence will be a lie, so I'm not sure what to do. I'd hate to have to move now and double my rent for up to a year waiting for his visa approval.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Thanks!

Put your current residence, then once you find a new place to live, submit a change of address.

Lots of people live with roommates, it is not a problem or red flag unless it's an ex-husband or something.
