Beneficiary moved during K1 processing

Hi everyone!

I'm writing to see if anyone else has experienced the same issue and if the information that I've been given so far is correct.

My fiancee lived in Dubai when we originally filed our K1 visa. Two months later she moved to Canada. Immediately when she moved I called USCIS to see if I needed to change her address on the I-129F application but they said that they can't do that yet since the application hadn't even been approved yet. They told me to wait until it is approved and I get my NOA2 and then I should contact the NVC because that's who sends it to the foreign consulate.

We are at the 4 month mark waiting for the NOA2 and I am just wondering if her moving could have delayed the petition. Has anyone else been in this position? She didn't only move addresses within the same country, she completely changed countries. Should I do what the USCIS rep suggested and wait for the NOA2 and then contact the NVC? I don't want them to accidentally send the approved (god willing) petition to Dubai!

Thanks in advance!

6/13/12 - NOA2 APPROVED! 5-months to the date of them receiving it.

6/21/12 - NVC Received (I think, I called on 22 early morning and it had an NVC case number already). Assigned an Abu Dhabi case number. Asked NVC what I needed to do to change consulates and followed the procedures exactly as they told me.

6/29/12 - NVC sent our case to the wrong consulate even though I followed every procedure to notify them of change-of-address

Great! Thanks for the confirmation. I felt pretty good about that being the case (it made sense from everything else I've read) but I'm sure you can appreciate wanting to be 100% accurate to avoid lengthy delays and errors through this whole whirlwind of a process.
