Change of Address

I just got USCIS approval on 6/21 (email) and the letter is in the mail. I will be moving to a new place on 6/25 to start my job after school. The last address is of my parents, where i want all the mail to go. I completed I-865 (change of address) and given my new home address and kept my parents address as my new mailing address. The USCIS Mesquite adress where this needs to be sent is common for both my present address and new address.

My question: I think it is better to wait till the packet is received at NVC and then send this out. give them the change of address. I may have to give NVC also the change of address but am not sure how this works in this situation. Any one who faced similar situation may please share your experience. Thanks.

Since your case isn't even at NVC, then you haven't filed an I-864, then you can't use the I-865 as that form is for sponsors who previously filed the AoS.

Once you have a case number, just call NVC and update your address with them. And then use your new address on the I-864 and DS-230. No forms to be sent out to update your address.

You only use I-865 if you move AFTER the beneficiary gets to the US.

Thanks Saylin, I agree that I-865 is "Sponsor's Notice of Change of Address" and become relevant after I-864 is filed. I read somewhere that we are also supposed to inform of any change of address - so I guess informing NVC is sufficient - of course we will use the new & old addresses in I-864 and DS-230 and we want all our physical mail to go to our old address (my parents address).

So our plan is as follows and I hope it is correct.

In DS-230 in item 10 (Permanent address where you intent to live) & 16 (address of Spouse), to use new address and Item 11 (Address where you want Green Card), to use the old address (my parents).

In I-864 in item 12 (Mailing address), to use old address (my parents) and in item 13 (Place of residence) to use the new address.

That sounds good!
