Hello everyone,


I tried to make some research on this specific matter, but I found different scenarios than mine.

My husband and I are moving to California for one year only, or temporary at least.

I know I MUST change the address on file with USCIS, also because I have RoC in progress, but do I have to change it also with the Secretary of State? Can I leave my previous address (as we'll be back at it anyway, my mother-in-law lives here) for USPS and DMV, and changing it ONLY with USCIS?


Let's say the answer is yes.

On March I will be applying for Naturalization from California, and I know I need to be living there for 3 months before being able to apply. Will they ask for like a proof of residency in California? What proof may that be? Work? Because if we keep our driver license the same, without having the California one, how will I prove I have been living in California for 3 months?


Sorry for all the questions, and possibly confusion.


I appreciate your help.



I am the beneficiary.

California requires new residents to get a California driver license within 10 days for residency.  You would also need to register your car and get car insurance for California.  


Your change of address regarding green card/naturalization is only to USCIS, not Secretary of State.
