Question about case

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon,

I need your advise. My husband is a member of the US Marine Corps, he got stationed in California and we live in Maryland. We have to send papers for my 10 years green card in August. I want to move to California with him as well. My question is: if I move with him to California, should we take our case in California too? or can we keep our official address in Maryland and remain our case in Maryland? If somebody has experience like that could you share it with me, please? Thank you in advance!

I understand your concern because change of addresses with USCIS has led to a lot of grief for many people in the past due to inefficiencies in the logistics system.

 

The form asks for both your physical and mailing address from Questions 15 to 17. Using your address in Maryland while actually residing in California would be untruthful. Your physical address is where you actually reside.

 

My advice is to follow the letter of the law and be truthful and accurate.

need to inform USCIS of change of address

suppose to be cohabiting with spouse so i would suggest using California address unless he is deployed and u can not go

if that happens the military has the spouse give you a POA for  legal purposes and you should have a copy of his papers

So if you want to go to CP or 29 Palms with him then you would use the California address because everything will be in California. 

 

What MOS is your husband? I was in Marines from 2001-2009 so I know alittle bit about about. 😋

It looks like the spouse is just in CA and not deployed overseas at this point in time.

If he goes and I will stay in Maryland, what's going on in that case? Can we keep Maryland address?

If he is in school now(MCCESS/29 Palms???) then I wouldn't move out there if I were you unless he has a school that will allow dependents depending how long the school is for. Do you know where he might be stationed after he graduates his MOS school? You can always inform USCIS of the change of address which it looks like no matter where you go that is what you will have to do. 

 

You can PM me if you want to help you understand better Marine Corps specific things.
