Change of address question for those who have done it!

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

My husband changed his address with the USCIS form online on July 23.  We got an confirmation email from USCIS saying "Address change request successfully submitted" and later in the confirmation email it says "expect a reply by August 4"

 

I'm not sure if the note about August 4 means that we should get a physical paper confirming the address change sent to the new house?  We never received new mail to the new house confirming this address change, so I just wanted to check in with people who may have successfully submitted an address change.  Did you hear from USCIS anytime after?

 

Thanks!!
Rebecca and Noe

I don't recall getting anything other than an online confirmation after changing my wife's address........but I did receive a paper confirmation after mailing in a form I-865 to change my (sponsor) address.

I changed my address online and didn’t hear anything. I later found out that they had updated my physical address, but not my mailing address, so you might want to call them a while after changing your address to check.

When doing changes of address is important to notify USCIS and USPS of the change.:idea:

Sorry to jump in on your topic but I didn't want to clutter the forum by creating a new one myself to also ask a question about change of address! 

 

I have my interview on September 9th but my wife and I are moving on August 31st. Our new apartment is only 10 minutes away from our current apartment and so my field office would not change, however I am worried that if I file a change of address form online that the automated system will cancel and reschedule my interview as they process my address change. We signed the lease for our new place on August 3rd but the lease on our current apartment does not end til August 31st, meaning that my interview date is just within the 10 day period I have to inform USCIS of my change of address. So should I wait and just talk to my interviewing officer on September 9th and inform them during my interview that I have moved? I feel like talking to an actual person about it would make things easier as I do not trust the online system and don't want any delays to my interview, but also I don't want to get in trouble for not filing the change of address form right away.

@AOK

I would just update it at the interview.

You could always mail a physical AR-11 a day or 2 before the interview if you’re worried about the cut-off

Good point, if USCIS prints on the envelope "Do Not Forward" (or similar), USPS will obey that request and return to sender, and likely start a big mess..... However, you have to keep USPS informed too! A lot of folks notify USCIS, but drop the ball on notifying USPS. In essence, the sender is notified, but the delivery service is kept in the dark.

 

My comment was made as a result of this notice on a USCIS link about change of address (they added the emphasis).

We strongly encourage you to update your address with USCIS to ensure you receive all correspondence and benefits from us in a timely manner and avoid possible delays related to your case.

Changing your address with the U.S. Postal Service will not change your address with USCIS. Please update your information with both USCIS and USPS.

Good luck on your immigration journey.
