Currently Living Abroad... Which Address Should I Use?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

For all forms related to CR-1, which address should I enter? The one I am currently occupying at the time of filing or my permanent address in the US?

I have been living here in Korea for two years, but I will be leaving in a few months (hopefully with my wife). It feels odd to write my Korean address since I won't even be there by the time anyone even looks at my case. But I don't know what they want. If I am doing DCF, I should be a resident of Korea (which I am), but the house isn't mine, it's not even in my name (supplied through my employer), and I will be leaving soon.

Please advise! I haven't been able to see any concrete advice on this.

Thanks, as always!

If you are legally living there you should do DCF. You do not need to stay in the country the entire time for DCF and it's significantly faster.

If you choose not to do DCF for some unknown reason, you can still use your legal address which is in Korea.

Seriously, use the DCF route.
