Change of address before approval of I-129F Package

Hi, all! This website has been a big help. I just have a couple of questions before finishing up the I-129F package.

#1 - My fiance will be moving to a new address before the I-129F Package is processed. He knows the new address, but won't be moving there till after I've sent the package in. I have listed his current address on all the forms, but wanted to know if this may cause an issue at a later date. What is the best way to go about this to avoid complications.

#2 - I'm sure this has been discussed in previous threads, but I was unable to find it. A link to the appropriate thread or a quick answer here would be much appreciated. The question is about Form I-134, Affidavit of Support. It doesn't state anywhere that I could find the minimum income needed to sponser my fiance. My mother has already agreed to co-sponser if needed, but I also don't know where to start with that either.

Thank you all again!

The adress - you can change that later on. There's an adress of change form on uscis website :)

Affidavit of support - it's about $19 000 for a household of 2. I believe that if yor fiance will come with a child the income has to be for 3 and so on. Same with the co- sponsor. Google poverty line usa and you will find it. The income requirements are all based on how big the household is :)

I've also heard about some embassies not taking co-sponsors, did you look that up?

London will accept a co-sponsor and also allows self sponsorship (so the inclusion of your own income).

Income guidelines for financial support here: http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-864p.pdf

You are able to change your address whilst the petition is ongoing, however it would be advisable to check the old address for mail also. If he already knows the address and is (presumably) moving there imminently, perhaps consider just using that one from the get go to avoid complications?

Also, if you haven't already, include the G-1145 electronic notification form that way you can get email/text updates (also helps if mail goes to the wrong place as you know when you should be expecting something!)

Lastly, I recommend reading through the United Kingdom Regional Forum- lots of useful information on there.

Good luck!

Moving during any immigration process always has potential for little hitches. Your immediate concern-- Your fiancé will be mailed a letter of instruction to the address you put on the petition. It won't be forwarded to his new address, so he won't get what people on here call "packet 3". He doesn't actually have to have that paper letter for any purpose. There are online methods where he can check to see when the case has arrived in London. And the process to follow is in the UK forum as well as posted online on the embassy website. http://london.usembassy.gov/iv_15.html

When he completes his forms for London, he will put his new address and that is where his (needed) interview letter will go. Then he will pay online for his visa and schedule the courier to deliver his passport back to him. The address he gives the courier is where it will be delivered.

So changing his UK address at the time of the move is not really needed, nor is there a good way to do it. By filling out his London forms (when the time comes) with his proper address serves as his address change. I have been around VJ a very long time and know this works for a UK person going through London.
