AOS mailing address vs. living address

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I will be filing the I-130 along with the I-485 and all the supporting documents for my non-immigrant spouse. She currently lives in another city but we will live together later this year.

For the address on the forms, can I use the mailing address of my house? Or do I have to use the address where she is currently living, which is a rental. It would be easier to use my address since the mailbox is more secure and we would not have to update any address information in the future. I didn't notice that the I-485 form had a separate mailing address and living address.

You can use your address, and if that's going to be your permanent address, I would suggest that you do use it. Keep in mind that USCIS wants to see proof of a bonafide relationship and a married couple living apart could work against that evidence. The faster you two are under the same roof, the better. If you are separated because of work or some other legitimate reason, then make sure you keep documentation showing that. Sometimes if USCIS has doubts about the legitimacy of your marriage, they could do a home visit. If you say you are living together and she is not there, that could be a problem.

Good Luck!

We are living apart due to work. If i use my address, is it assumed that is where my spouse is living? Or just the mailing address.
