Change of mailing address before green card mailed out

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a question that I can't seem to find an answer to.  My wife just got to the US about a week ago and immediately upon arrival I paid for her green card fee online.  When I login to check her status on where the GC is it doesn't say much.  But on my profile page for her it has a section for addresses mailing and physical address. 

 

I decided to change only our mailing address when I logged into https://myaccount.uscis.dhs.gov/

 

The reason why I changed to mailing address is because we might have to leave our new apartment due to some serious issues.  Is this the only change I need to do in order for my wife's green card to arrive at the new mailing address or do I have to file an AR-11 form in addition to this just to change the mailing address?  Does my account supersede the AR-11 form?

 

I don't know if we are going to move yet or not but decided it would be safe to change the mailing address now in case we do move.  I don't want the GC potentially getting lost and I am thinking about having this mailing address for us permanently since it is a reliable family address.

If you move, make sure you also complete, print, and mail a Form I-865, Sponsor's Notice of Change of Address.  It must be mailed.....

 

I would also do the online AR-11 for her address change.

Ok thanks! What about the mailing address? I changed it while logging into this page.  Is that good enough?
