Residential Address and Mailing Address are different how to proceed for I-I30?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I apologize for a lot of questions but I do really appreciate all the help this forum has given me. My question is:


My husband's residential address is different from his mailing address.. he's using his parent's address. He lives in a condo and had problems with missing letters/mail/items when he used to have them sent where he lives. Is there a way we can specify at the I-I30 petition that he actually lives in the address stated on the form and have the NOA1, or other forms to follow to be sent to his parent's address aka mailing address? I appreciate the help in advance.

I did this for my wife's AoS and USCIS accidentally listed the mailing address as the primary, scheduling us in that state for biometrics. When correcting them and updating our address, I personally believe it's added a few months to our process since we are going on nine months without as much as an interview notice. Maybe our case is an exception but I wish I didn't use an alternate mailing address.

hi there, thank you for the reply and so sorry to hear that!

was your wife the petitioner? and what did you mean scheduling us in the state for biometrics? I'm sorry I'm not really that knowledgeable in the process yet but I'm reading and researching. :)

We put my parents address in another state as the mailing address since we were about to move from one address in Washington, DC to another in the same city, but we didn't want to take any chances of mail forwarding not working.

USCIS scheduled my wife's biometrics in my parents' state, as if that was our permanent/physical address, which we clearly listed as Washington, DC. We did a walk-in for the same day and time at our local office in the DC area (where USCIS should have scheduled it in the first place) and they did her biometrics with no problem. In August we updated our address on file to our new DC address and found out that our case was still in the field office out of state as if we lived at my parents' address.

Now it's October and we still don't even have an interview date even though we filed for AoS in early January and we have had no RFEs or any complications in our case.

oh I see, hopefully you'll get a notification soon! It sucks having to wait not knowing when things should be happening.

the addresses my husband has is 5 minutes away from each other, I hope it won't be a problem.. this whole filing can be tricky!

again, I will keep my fingers for the both of you.

Thanks. In our case, my parents' address is in another state and another USCIS jurisdiction, so when we changed address (to fix USCIS' error) we moved from one field office to another. It looks like that wouldn't happen in your case.
