7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello

I recently employed a visa company---reputable---and i am currently living in a western state. i have a teaching job here...job and house are tied together...included in employment. i started spousal visa 3 months ago. no updates beyond the NOA1. i may need to move from here in a month or two...may be let go from my job. And i know by July 1 I will not be here, I am not recontracting at this job. My visa folks said "dont change home address" because it is a huge huge problem. How true is this? I hate my job here and I want to go home to my home state.....but I am only staying out of fear of having a visa problem. Any experience with this??? Any advice???

You can change your address online or calling 1-800-375-5283. Not a problem.

If you move, you move. Just update the address as noted above.

Sometimes (pretty rarely) the address may not update in the USCIS system properly so notices are sent to the old address still. The only notice you'll get is the NOA2 or an RFE, and you should be able to see this online or by calling as well. This likely won't be for several months still.

you do need to change address as immigration mail can not be forwarded and your spouse needs to know address for interview and POE

 

but if USCIS has a good email ID they can deliver NOA2 and all correspondence to the email
