hello all

I am filing based on three year marriage rule. eligibility window opens us next month

however, my employer indicated that I may possibly transfer to NC after the new year

I live in CT.

what to do what to do?

file and then somehow indicate the new address, both CT & NC go to the same lock box anyway

or is it advisable to just wait until I know my permanent location to avoid any unnecessary delays

thanks

Will your spouse move with you? If she doesn't it might bring headache. By the way, you need to reside at least 3 months in NC to be qualified to file and interview in NC.

The move is going to delay it anyway - as Nancy said above, you need to 3 months of in state residency to file.

hi guys

thanks for taking the time to write back

my wife is definitely moving with me - and my two girls

I guess it is better to wait - I just was not sure what will happen if I file as a CT resident and suddenly the whole family has to pick up and move while an interview or biometrics is underway

If you manage to send your application before you move and after your window opens that would be great. You need to have 3 months living in the same Uscis district before you file, HOWEVER, once you file you can move and request the file to be transferred to the new location

if you moved before you file , then you need to wait 3 months before you file in your new location. I hope it's clear, because some people think if you file and then you change your address to a different state they will deny your application, that's not true, the rule here is they look at the three months before you filed if you lived in that district or not, but after you file you can change your address and they will transfer your case to the new Uscis office.

This is correct. There is a requirement that you reside in the state in which you are applying for 90 days prior to filing but there's nothing that says you can't move to another state between application and interview. You can ask that your file be transferred.

That being said, there are probably dozens of posts on this and other sites about how files were never transferred and interview appointments were sent for the original field office not the new one. Those are probably dozens of bad experiences for hundreds or thousands of good experiences that don't get posted. Personally, I would move first, wait three months, and then apply. That would save me having to worry about having my file transferred. But as per the previous post, if you're in a hurry, you can apply before you move.

well, I am really in no hurry

but the prospect of moving with my employer is also up in the air and it may never work out.

Eligibility window opened up already

Personally; i moved from IN to NY to CT and it took time, but my file was transferred every time

my worry is that i file, and get an interview date, then suddenly move - or move right before further delaying the interview date

I am thinking like JimmyHou said; wait it out and either bite the bullet with the three months wait, or file right away if my employer decided i will not relocate
