I-130 Help: W2s Show different employer address from where I actually worked.

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. Hopefully someone has had a similar question. 

 

When filling out employer information some of my W2s show different a addresses and companies from where I worked. For instance I worked for Pacific Capital Resource Group In WA however the W2 shows Penn Mutual Insurance... The parent company of Pacific Capital..

 

I also worked for a Hotel in ID.. But the hotel was ran by a company called Columbia Hospitality in Seattle WA. and the W2 shows Seattle and Columbia Hospitality. 

 

Should I write what the w2s say in the application, or should I write the business and location at which I was employed?  I worry that since the w2s don't line up with where I lived and worked, this will raise questions. 

 

Has anyone else had this issue? 

 

Thank you!

It's very common for employers to do this. For my father's I-485 he put the W-2 address. In hindsight, putting the local address was probably clearer and acceptable. So I say either way is fine.
