Moving while adjusting status and mailbox issues

It's been a long process so far-thanks for all your help. I'll definitely plan on helping others on here when this is all done.

Anyways, now we're planning on moving in a little over a month. We're just going maybe 2 miles away, but we don't like the apartment we are in. We just sent our AOS package (I-485, I-765, etc.) for K-1 on Monday.

On another forum, it appeared that it was possible - I would need to file AR-11 and call USCIS. I also found on another site that we cannot change address online if we used I-485.

I'm asking you all what the best course of action is, since you've always known the most so far.

Also - I read somewhere about a failed AOS application due to mail not showing up - and that perhaps the reason was not having a mailbox that was labeled. I guess we should do this - is there a standard format? Also are there any other things we need to be aware of related to this?

I am constantly finding tiny new things that we have to do - or that we're not allowed to do. Sorry that in my confusion I rely on this forum so much - but thanks for your patience!

Re: change of address - suggest that you read the I-485 form AND instructions for the correct information. :yes:

I did that, went to the site it listed - but no info on mailboxes

Perhaps I misunderstood your inquiries. :unsure:

If you are looking for information about delivery of mail service, mailboxes and address requirements of them, suggest you contact US Postal Service, or Google search for postal service regulations.

The USCIS forms and instructions I mentioned pertained to immigration information and instructions related to change of address requirements of USCIS.

Good luck on your visa journey

I can see where my original post was confusing. I meant that I read in a forum that someone in a similar situation didn't receive notice that they were being summoned for an interview - presumably because their mailbox was not labelled properly. In the forum (I can't find it, otherwise I would post it) the same person mentioned that USCIS required labelled mailboxes - since I live in an apartment, I only have my room number on mine. I thought maybe this was a USCIS-specific requirement, since of course any other mail will arrive fine. Not sure the post office would be of much help - and contacting USCIS about anything is difficult.

Grab a piece of paper and write your last names (yes, both....yours and your wife's maiden). Tape it inside of your mail box where the mailman can see it.

That's all
