Which address and names to use for AoS?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We are sending out our AoS package this week.

We are currently renting an appartment but will be buying hopefully within half a year. For this reason we are wondering if we should put our apt address and risk getting our mail sent to an address we don`t live at anymore when I am going through the process? Or can I just write down my husbands parents address? We don`t live there obviously, but we know they`re not going anywhere anytime soon.

We don`t have a P.O. box but I guess if we cannot use his parents address we can rent a P.O. box to fill that out on all our documents?

Also, I was born with a First name and 2 middle names. Now that we are married I wanna drop those 2 middle names and take my maiden name as my middle name. How do I do this on the forms?

Do I write my maiden name as middle name? Or do I write my old middle names as my middle name? If I can just write my maiden name as my middle name, do I still put my maiden name with "previously used names"? And do I do the same thing with those old middle names?

I know I am making things more confusing than they are but I am legitimately worried to mess up!

Thank you guys in advance!

I would use your current address to keep things streamlined and matching previous documents. If you move during the process, you are required to update your address with USCIS (as well as an I-864 Supporter) anyways. So they will have a new address for you in their system that way. Also, you can forward your mail through the US Post Office to the changed address, in case anything was caught in between.

Good Luck! My husbands green card was mailed today, so our process is almost complete for the AOS!

The address we used before was his parents address since he lived with his parents till the day I moved, then we moved in our apt together.

We are just worried and know mail in this little village doesn`t always get forwarded. People in this apt community just throw away mail that isn`t theirs and I am terrified that important documents of ours would just end in the trash because the local post office forgot to forward it.

Since we have always used his parents address (his former address) before, do you think we can just keep using that one?

Congratulations!! It must feel so great to finally be through with the most stressful part!!

Ah I gotcha. Hmm...Did you notify USCIS of your current change of address to your apartment? Maybe a PO Box would be a good option if the mail isn't reliable? I don't think there is a perfect answer, other than to make sure USCIS is always updated where you are living.

Thanks! Yes, it was 6 months for our AOS approval, but finally made it!
