Three Different Addresses

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I was gathering together things we could submit if we have an interview; and realized we may have a problem. We have three different addresses in various parts of our evidence.

1. My residency is still in Minnesota (though I live in Chicago now), thus our joint bank account statement lists my address in Minnesota (where my mother lives, though I no longer live there) I've held onto this address as my permanent address because I have moved so much for school in the past and it is a solid place to get mail and so on.

2. We currently live in graduate student housing (as I am a student and working full-time) on our joint lease, we have our physical address listed, but the official address I've been using for everything is a Chicagoan mailing address at the Seminary, which is where all our mail must go, because our graduate student housing receives no mail.

3. The official address we've put on everything from our I-129F to where my husband will be living once he comes to the U.S. is the mailing address I mentioned before, because nothing, absolutely nothing official could be received at the graduate student housing.

Since this is so complicated, I'm considering not submitting the joint lease or our joint checking account with our AOS package in case they make a fuss about the different addresses. I'm not sure what to do. Any advice?

Thank you all so much! This VJ community is an invaluable support network.

Why not prepare a statement with big bold title "Explanation of Different Addresses" and include everything that you've just said above?

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

I agree with TBoneTX

Also, you should put it like this:

Physical or Current address: Your graduate student address

Mailing address: The one you have in Chicago.

Minnesota address: forget about this one, so you don't have to worry about having so many addresses.

Ultimately, USCIS needs a mailing address to send you their letters, and they need to know where you live.

I just finished doing this. Thank you so much.

Do you think this might work for another issue we are having?

In Cambodia, the surname always goes before the given name, but in the U.S., it is typically the opposite. Thus, on his SSN and in several other American documents, it is ordered in the U.S. style, and in all our Cambodian documents, it is in the Cambodia style. Do you think they will make a fuss about this? I've written an explanation about it though and attached it as a supplement.
