Late notice of change of address

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

Hi everyone. My wife (USC) and I separated about 3 months ago but forgot to submit forms AR-11 and I-865, giving notice of our change of addresses. There was nothing conspiratorial in our failing to do so, we just plain got caught up in the separation and moving out and forgot. I realise it was stupid. Anyway, the AR-11 and I-865 are supposed to be completed within 10 and 30 days, respectively, of any change of address. My question is, having well exceeded these time limits, would it be best to submit the forms now, giving the true dates of our moving and risk a fine, or to put on them that we only moved out in September?

Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Tell the truth on the form and be assured you are not the first, or the last...

:)

PS: use trackable mail and keep a copy of your forms.

Thanks guys. That was my gut feeling. Just wondered what other people thought. Thanks again for the advice.

I was 6 months late once went over my head I got an infopass and explained what I had done and she laughed and said just fill the form out here and I will enter it into the computer.

She said it happens all the time.

No worries; you're not required to call in. Since you have no applications pending, you really don't have to worry about changing your mailing addy. Put your new mailing address on the next petition/form you file.

Haggischomper,

Further to meauxna's reply, since you have not open applications the people at the NCSC wouldn't have anything to do with the information if you did call. There's no place for them to enter the updated information.

Cheers y'all - that put my mind at rest.

Removing conditions doesn't count as having an application pending? Also good to know! Can't wait to get to the end of this damned maze....!

You can use that filing (I-751) to change your mailing address.

AR-11 is to report where you are, so they can keep track of you. It's nothing to do with mailing addresses.
