Permanent address in the US -DS 260 DCF FILING

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I-130 was approved by Rome. My husband filed the petition directly to the Italian consulate since he is stationed here in Italy (I am an Italian national). I need to fill out form DS 260 online, which, I am assuming, is a generic one for several types of visas. I am applying for a CR1 filed directly to the consulate.

 

The form asks to specify a permanent address in the United States where I will be staying at and my green card is going to be sent to. My husband, who's in the USAF, will PCS in January 2020, but we do not know our next station yet. We will be notified of our next destination in August; however, we will not have a permanent specific address until we physically move there. What kind of address should I put? Since we do not know where we are going, we are not able to determine if we have any friends in the area they could receive the green card for me.

 

Also, it appears that the information is compulsory. I cannot switch to other sections of the form without the address.  I managed to skip that by putting a random city and zip code and typing 'unknown' on the first address line. I am scared that is going to create issues if my green card is granted. 

 

Thank you in advance for any possible help.

A lot of people in the military use there parent's address for official mail.

We are not that lucky :)  He pretty much doesn't have a family. So.... we can't use that option.

 

I am assuming a friend would be fine even if this person does not necessarily live nearby our next stations. What do you think?

 

Thank your for answering.

We might consider a friend since he does not have a family. Is it possible to change the address later on (before entering the States)?

Thank you.

Yes, the address can be changed by both USCIS and USPS.......

I-130 can say To Be Determined.

However by the visa application (DS-260) you guys will need a plan of where you are going to live. 

This can be changed at POE.

Our lawyer advised us to put the address of my husband's new duty station. This can be easily explained during the interview and changed once we enter the US

We used a throwdown address (my brother’s) and updated the address at POE when we entered.

That will be one of the questions they ask you in the mysterious back room.
