Hello,

I've changed my address and informed the USCIS by updating the myUSCIS profile and filling the AR-11 online form and in the very same day my GC status changed to "card is being produced". 

 

So where will my card be mailed to? my old address or the new address? I tried calling many times but they keep me on hold for alot of time.

It all depends on when USCIS makes the update to your record in their system.  If the status online still says "card is being produced" I would suggest that you call USCIS tomorrow and stay on hold or keep pressing "0" until you finally get a real person, then confirm that they have your new address in their system.  At least for peace of mind.  I have heard stories of USPS not forwarding green cards in the mail even if you have a one-year mail forwarding set up.  I hope this works out for you.  Good luck!

Green cards are all sent in the mail via USPS.  My comment was that if you changed your address and have a one-year forwarding service set up with USPS, they may not forward it to the new address if USCIS sends it to your old address because the envelope is marked "do not forward."  This is why you should call USCIS tomorrow to make sure your new address is in their computer system.

Green cards are not forwarded. Fix it with USCIS so it does not go back. Odds' are pretty high they will send it to old address. 

 

Or Park a tent on the old address and wait for the postman to show up on the delivery date

I had the exact same scenario and my card was mailed to my old address. I had to convince the apartment manager to forward it to me even though that was not their policy.

is it a problem if I go to my old address and pick it up from there? I mean I am going to try contacting USCIS but in the worst case scenario I will just go to my old address?

If you know the new tenant, I would definitely go and pick it up if it goes to your old address. USPS does not forward green cards so it would go back and getting it resent is apparently a pain.

I updated our AR-11 and 2 days later, our status were updated to "Cards are being produced" and "Your case is approved". We just received our 797 in our new address, the USCIS updated the new address the same day we applied. I also informed the new residents of the old address to help us receive any mails from USCIs so we would not worry about losing any important document.

Congrats!!

how much time did it take for your card to get printed and mailed to you after having "card is being produced" status?

I can’t tell for the GC yet. We are still waiting. Our previous experience with cards, they came within 2 weeks most time. Once, husband’s EAD got lost in the Usps mail. Tracking said delivered but it was never in our mailbox. We reapplied first it.
