hi all, got a question here. 2 weeks ago we submit the I-751 petition for my wife. we havn't receive our noa yet. but we are thinking of moving to a different apartment because with our new baby coming into this world we need a bigger and newer place to live. i am concerned about our address though. if we move, would the immigration service allow any of our documents to be forwarded to a new address? or would it have some kind of notice on the envelope that forbids forwarding. If we move i know I can just fill out one of those forwarding forms at the post office but i am not sure if its wise. what should i do? no idea how long it'll take for the petition to be approved but we would like to move in a couple month.

Why not submit the AR-11 and I-865? And as a caution, always get return receipt for it and follow up by corresponding with the local district and Service Center.

can we still sent in the 2 forms while we are waiting for the petition? since on the petition we write our current address and not where we want to move, would there be a mix up when they want to contact us?

Yes you have to tell them if you move.... so within 10 days of moving you need to file form AR-11 for non-usc and I-865 for the sponsor and also write a letter to your old local office and your new local office telling them of your change of address.

To successfully change your mailing address, from the Dept of Overkill:

-file AR-11 as required by law. This does not change your *mailing* address, but it informs USCIS where you might have been, at one time. Just do it, it's the

law

http://uscis.gov/graphics/howdoi/address.htm

How Do I Report a Change of Address to the USCIS?

AR-11 does not generally generate a NOA receipt. Send by trackable mail.

-Copy of AR-11 to any LOCAL or district office where you might have a file. Include a letter saying: change my mailing address

-copy of AR-11 to any Service Center where you might have a file. Include a letter saying: change my mailing address

-Phone call to 1-800 MisInformation line with the request: please change my mailing address

-file I-865 for USC Sponsor as required by law. You *may* get a NOA for this one and it *might* change the Sponsor's mailing address. Or not.

-file Change of Address and Mail Forwarding with the USPS. Your USCIS mail *might* get forwarded to your new addy. Or returned to USCIS, you never know. Unfortunate side effect: the PO sells your new address to bulk mailers and you are now back on every junk mailing list under the sun.

-Follow up phone call to 1-800 to see if address change is captured.

-Cross fingers and keep an eye on processing times and when you expect to be contacted. Don't let it go for ages and then say 'dude, where's my case?'.©

wow thats a lot of forms to fill out but its definitely what i need to do i am sure. one thing i am worried is if our documents get send back to USCIS. If that happens, I have a feeling its going to take a long time for it to deliver to our new address. I just don't want to delay the petition process any longer than it'll take.

maybe i should wait for my NOA first? I send it out on Sept 25th, USPS confirmed package delivered on 28th, check was cashed on the 29th. so i should get my NOA soon then. hopefully.

Just two forms, which take about 2 min each to fill out.


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1
