No lease or documentation of our address

Hi, everyone.  This is my first post...feels momentous.  lol.  I'm going to send off our I-130 any day now and I'm feeling conflicted about our address information.  In somewhat typical Turkish fashion, we have never had proper lease documentation for our apartments.  Officially, our address has always been listed as my husband's parents' address but we've never actually lived there.  Should I use that as our address on the I-130 and then where we live as our mailing address?  I'm filing with both of us living out of the US.  I hate to list my address as somewhere I've never lived.  That feels wrong.  Yet, I don't want to open a can of worms with listing an address that's not on our official records here.  I'd appreciate any advice.

You do not need documentation of your address.  To indicate you live somewhere you do not live, is a lie.  Don't ever lie on an immigration form or to an immigration official.  Just answer the question.  For perspective, US Citizens do not "register" their addresses, except for voting purposes.  You live where you live and you lived where you lived, official or not, papers or not.
