Hi we are in the AOS process pending since last year and are moving to another state. How do we change our address? Is it online or paper? Do we both need to do it(Petitioner and Beneficiary)


The AOS is from F-1 to AOS based on marriage to a US Citizen.

As for the addresses, the I-130 is the petitioner's form. The I-485, I-765, and I-131 are the beneficiary's forms.

The I-864 is a bit of an oddball here as it is not executed yet...normally you would file an I-865 as a sponsor, but since it's not executed yet, I wouldn't worry about it.

You file Form AR-11 online, and the US Citizen has to snail mail form I-865 Sponsor Change Of Adress.
We just moved in January (pending AOS after marriage as well) and had to submit both.

No big deal, and you get a confirmation letter for both.
