Re-Entry Permit address question

Hello all,

Thanks for your comments in advance.

I have a question regarding the address we put on a I-131 re-entry permit application.

The background - LPR through marriage to US citizen. We were approved for a re-entry permit but never actually received it because USCIS claims it was lost in the mail. We are now temporarily abroad for several years due to work. We will be in the US in early July to apply for another (1st) re-entry permit. We will depart the US between application and biometrics, thus requiring a later trip back to the US to complete biometrics.

Can we use, say a relatives address in Chicago or New York, on the I-131 form so the biometrics appointment gets scheduled at a facility easier to fly to from Europe? OR is it required to place our 'home' address in CA which will equate to a biometrics appointment scheduled in CA?

Another possibility is to attempt a walk-in after receiving appointment letter into a different ASC than the appointment is for, but I feel there is too much uncertainty and costly flights if the walk-in fails.

Even another possibility is to attempt to expedite the process and stay in the US for up to 2-4 weeks waiting between application and biometrics, but there is no guarantee or valid information that USCIS lets you know if it is expedited or not, aid from congressmen would most likely be required.

Comments/advice appreciated!
