N-400, concern using mailing address from different state than residence address

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

 

I had a question to those who might have heard of or dealt with this issue.

 

I reside in New Hampshire, but travel a lot for work, sometimes few weeks at a time out of the state. I decided to leave my employer headquarters address (California) in N-400 application page 3, Part 5, Section B — "Current Mailing Address". I am likely to receive mail quickly and reliably to my employer address than on my physical address. I just don't want to miss any appointments.

 

Despite that the purpose of mailing address obviously means for convenience and probably can be anywhere in USA (one would think), I was wondering: will the fact that mailing address is in a different state than residence address cause any concerns from immigration officer, during my interview?

 

Thanks.

If you are filing based on marriage to US citizen ( at 3 year mark ) that may def raise questions - but it seems from your post that is not the case.

 

If you have a NH state issued ID to show residency there and your tax returns show NH , that should work. Be ready to explain why you have included the California address. But to your point, mailing address is supposed to be your most reliable one.

 

Also, it seems that the Manchester NH office is a pretty fast one so congrats on that !

Yeah I've lived in NH for many years. I am filing based on having been a permanent resident for 5 years now. Got it via H1B.

 

I didn't realize before how different address on marriage based filing can raise some red flags.
