Fortunately, it's pretty simple. You'll BOTH need to fill out change of address forms. Your wife will need to fill out the AR-11 form, and YOU (assuming you are her U.S. sponsor) will need to fill out the I-865 form. A lot of people forget about the latter, and it seems to result in RFEs quite regularly.

Just file those two forms, and be sure to set up mail forwarding with USPS. Sometimes it takes awhile for USCIS to fully process the two above-mentioned forms, so there are instances of them sending mail to old addresses.

Hi Wyatt's Torch,

I ran into this post. My husband and I moved in to a different city couple months ago. so it has been 5 months now since my biometrics. I submitted AR-11 a month ago, and didnt include I-865 since i didnt know about it. Should I get worried now? or should I mail I-865 asap?

I do appreciate the your response, Thanks.

Yes, I would send the I-865 a.s.a.p.

Like I mentioned above, it's often forgotten about, but the reality is that USCIS is just as concerned about where the "sponsor" is living as where the immigrant is living. In spousal visa situations, it's even more important, as if the sponsor (U.S. citizen spouse) is listed as having a different address than the immigrant, it can look like a green card marriage.

I had forgotten about the need to file the I-865 until a couple of months after I filed the AR-11. I've been waiting 9.5 months for my permanent green card, but it remains to be seen if I'll get an RFE...

Government mail isn't supposed to be forwarded so forwarding most likely won't work.

Normally I'd agree, but several VJ folks have mentioned that their USCIS mail was forwarded. Mind you, it's pretty standard for people to set up mail forwarding regardless, so it can't hurt either way.

hello im in a similar situation i have a question regarding this, when i first submit for adjustment of status i was at my old address, then after the whole process was over and got her conditional green card we moved to our new address. ok so here is my question im about to submit the removal of conditions i have not yet, do i need to submit the change of address before i submit the removal packet. i was under the impression that once i submit my removal form they would just use that address on that form. i thought the change the of address form was only if you moved during the "NOA".

Can i just submit my removal of conditional status with the new address on the form or do i need to submit a change of address form at the same time as the condition removal?

According to the instructions on the USCIS website, you're supposed to file the AR-11 (change of address) and I-865 (sponsor change of address) as soon as you move. They're separate from the I-751 process, so you should do them as soon as possible...preferably before you send in your I-751.
