Never officially changed address. Am i in trouble??

Recommended Posts

My wife has a travelling job and we move across the country staying 3 months at each place. Our main address has always been our Washington one. In the I751 application i send copies of leases and of places we lived at and honestly filled out on the form where we lived and attached a letter and explained why we move so much.

 

Now i read not notifying uscis within 10 days is a deportable offense... Im terrified. Reason we never filed address change is because i figured there is no point doing it every 3 months and maybe missing important mail.

 

Im worried.

Yes, the immigrant is required to file an AR-11 (by mail or online) whenever they move. Any I-864 sponsor (such as your spouse) must file an I-865 as well whenever they move.

 

That said, they don't enforce this with fines or anything.

It doesn't sound like you are actually changing your residence, though...just temporary housing due to work. So I don't see any issue.

I don't see a reason for a problem with the change of address reporting in your circumstances.
