Does it hurt to change your address?

Hi,

I would like to know if it hurts to keep moving from place to another within the state that you are waiting to get your greencard from? My wife has already gone to the interview back in february '06. As you may know, we are waiting for the damn security check to go through. However, a friend of mine said that through discussions he had with his lawyer that your security check gets further delayed if your address changes often.

Our address has changed three times in the span of 5 months. Please let me know if anyone knows anything about this situation.

Thank you

have you always sent in the required forms for both of you? AR-11 for the immigrant, and I-865 for the sponsor spouse?

If you keep moving aruond and you don't notify them, they very well could think you are trying to get away from something. But then again, if you don't tell them that you've moved, they wouldn't know.

You may want to look at the instructions on both of those forms, there are penalties and fines for not notifying them if you move.


divorced - April 2010 moved back to Ontario May 2010 and surrendered green card

PLEASE DO NOT PRIVATE MESSAGE ME OR EMAIL ME. I HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT CURRENT US IMMIGRATION PROCEDURES!!!!!

I would think changing your addresses three times in five months would definitely delay any and everything plus it can not look good.

I have sent the proper forms each time that our address has changed. So, what am I suppose to do? Lie to them about my address being changed? Dont notify the change?

Did you know that the change of address forms do NOT change the address on any pending applications??? you should make an infopass appointment and check that they have not sent information to an old address.... also take a copy of the AR-11 and a letter asking them to update the address on your pending AOS...

Good Luck

I'm not sure if it delays anything, but I hope not. After 3 calls and 2 Infopass appointments our address was right, but we received an AR 11 form to fill out. That was kinda stupid since we didn't move, but asked them to put our apartment number in the second address line. They regarded that as change of address somehow. The form looked pretty weird filled out since we have the same address as new and old address, anyway, we attached a letter explaining the whole situation. I think a lot of things get screwed up with addresses. I read of a lot of other cases where people did not move but had to change addresses (shorten, 2nd line) because the MSC system cannot print long addresses...

Btw we are in Charlotte too. I had very good experience during Infopass here, the officers are really nice and really help (they called the MIssouri people and did everything they could to help). I'd make an appointment, then you will get new information and help.

Good luck,

Anna.
