What to fill in for my US address

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I'm new to this forum. I'm currently a US expat working in India for the past 1-1/2 years. I recently married an Indian citizen, and now I'm being brought back to the USA. I plan to do a DCF for her visa, but I'm having an issue with my place of residence on a bunch of forms (I-130, DS-230, I-864). Since I haven't lived in the USA for a while now, all I have is a PO Box in a different state than I actually live (and also different than the POE). My company will be setting up temporary housing for me, but I won't have that address until after I file the I-130. Also, I'll only be at that location for 2 months, after which I'll have found my own apartment.

Does anyone have any recommendations on how I should handle this situation?

Put your address in India - they won't be surprised by that in a DCF case. You'll be able to supply the evidence of your impending relocation at a later stage (generally, it accompanies your I-864 to show your residency abroad was temporary and you're going back to the USA). I believe you have to make an appointment with the New Delhi office to turn in your I-130, so you can always just leave it blank and ask them and fill that in on the spot.
