Change of address issue/removal of conditions

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife received her marriage-based green card in January 2019 after a 3 year overstay on a tourist visa. I am a USC and her sponsor. She will be eligible to apply for removal of the conditional green card in October 2020.

We moved from northern New Jersey to New York City (which changes our USCIS office) in mid-June 2019. The day we moved, we submitted the AR-11 change of address online, but never received a confirmation number. I followed up on this this week and after my wife called USCIS's hotline, we learned that they had no records in their system of the AR-11 being submitted. The agent my wife spoke to on the phone seemed apologetic and was able to fill out the AR-11 for her today while on the call, but this is now 3.5 months after we moved. The agent was unaware of the date we had moved - my wife simply told him that we tried to submit and it didn't work. I understand the immigrant spouse is supposed to fill out the AR-11 within ten days of moving (which, per the above, we did, but again it wasn't processed). I'm wondering if this is going to create a problem when it's time to remove her conditional - or could it even create a problem sooner? I also just found out I should have filled out an I-865 for the sponsor change of address too within 30 days - I'll be sending that in tomorrow.

None of this seems like it's hugely serious, but I am wondering if this could create an issue down the road now that we've informed USCIS that we changed our address late. Anyone have experience with this? Thanks.

it's not gonna cause any issues. It happens all the time. During my 751 I changed the address and after 2 years they were still sending me notices to the old address, luckily my friend was still living there. but it  didn't cause any issues with them. Don't worry, good thing you called and got the new address on record
