Filing Forms AR-11 and I-865

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow VJers!

My permanent resident husband and I (the U.S. citizen), have been scouting a new city and, after one month of being tourists, have decided to stay here permanently.

Since we have just decided to settle down here permanently:

1. Does my husband need to file Form AR-11 Alien's Change of Address Card?

2. Do I need to file Form I-865 Sponsor's Notice of Change of Address?

3. Even though our current address is a hotel, where we foresee we will be staying in for up to 6 months, should we still put that down as our current address?

4. Should we put down the "effective date" of the change of address in Form I-865 as the day we made the decision to stay here? I ask because, before that day, we were simply tourists.

5. Once we leave the hotel and move into our house/apartment, do we need to file both Form AR-11 and I-865 again?

Your feedback is most appreciated! Thanks in advance!!

Needs to be filed every time you change your address, I'm not sure that a hotel would count as an address but since you would technically be living there for 6 months, I personally would send a change of address notice for the hotel and then as well for your new home address when you find a home and move in.

Its a short form and painless to do. Required by law for the GC holder.

Once I-864 (AOS) is filed the US spouse must file change of address everytime there is a move using I-865. Of course all alien spouses must file change of address after entering US.
