Hello,

I changed my address while my I-751 is pending (only moved to a different apt. in the same building). I changed it on the general USCIS website, even though the website said to rather do it on myuscis account if you have one (which I do, but frankly I didn't figure out how to do change address on myuscis, lol). I got an email with a confirmation from USCIS a couple days later, saying that they updated my address in their system. But now I'm getting nervous about if they actually have the right address since I've been waiting for my new green card for 15 months now. Anybody has the same experience with changing the address on USCIS website instead of myuscis? Is it ok? What is the best way to make sure they have the right address? Sorry for being paranoid, lol.

If you would like to feel comfortable, you can also make the same address change on myuscis account, and then talk to a live agent and ask if it is changed as well to triple check everything, but... USCIS is really bad at these address changes, even if you do everything, they may not change it. So, make sure that you update your address with USPS so that they can forward your mail. USPS forwards mails for a year, and you have the option to extend this forwarding service for a small fee after one year. I suggest you do that, and don't count on USCIS's confirmation. Since you are still in the same building, even if you will be scheduled for an interview, your local office will not change, so it is ok for that matter.

There are several systems - and being a Govt. IT system, it doesn't always communicate and work properly, so even if you have filed an AR-11 it may not reflect on all of the systems.

I still had issues with making infopass appointments at the start this year, because one of the several linked USCIS systems had an old address for me, despite letters and notifications coming to my correct address.

 

Make the same change in myuscis

Call them to confirm.

Call them again.

 

 


CR1 / DCF (London): 2012 / 2013 (4.5 months from I-130 petition to visa in hand)

I-751 #1- May 2015 [Denied]

 

Early May 2015 : I-751 Joint filing package sent fedex next day 09:00am from UK ($lots - thanks). 
Jan 2017: Notification that an interview has been scheduled at a local office. Bizarrely still no RFE... 
Jan 2017: 2hr wait, then interview terminated before it began, due to moving my ID to another state 2 wks prior. New interview 'in a few months...maybe.'   Informed them that divorce proceedings are underway, but not finalised at this time. 
March 2017: An Interview was scheduled - marked as no-show as they didn't actually send out a notification of interview. FML 
April  2017: Filed an official complaint with the ombudsman, and have requested Senator & Congressman assistance
August 2017: Interview - switched to a (finalised) divorce waiver. Told that decision will be made that afternoon, but no problems foreseen with my case. 
October 2017: Letter of Denial received - reason given as 'I-751 petition was not properly filed'. Discovered ex-spouse made false allegations to USCIS. No opportunity given to review & refute allegations  - contrary to USCIS policy.

 

I-751 #2 - Oct 2017 [Denied] 

 

October 2017: Within 72hrs of receiving denial notice, a new waiver I-751, divorce decree & $680 cheque, sent to Vermont via FedEx overnight 9am priority.  
Dec 2019: Filed FOIA request for full A# file
Feb 2020: FOIA request completed - entire A# file received as a .PDF; 197 pages fully redacted, and 80 partially redacted. Don't waste your time!
March 2021: I-751 #2 denied for lack of evidence. No RFE, no interview, and evidence in previous I-751 not reviewed - contrary to policy. Huge errors in adjudication.

 

 N-400 - Feb 2018 [Denied] 

February 2018: N-400 filed online.  $725 paid to the USCIS paperwork wastage fund

February  2019: Interview - cancelled after a four hour wait due to 'missing paperwork' on their end. Promised Expedited reschedule.

March 2021: Interview letter received, strangely dated after I-751 denial. No I-751 interview conducted. N-400 interview and test passed, given 'cannot make a decision at this time' paper due to the ongoing I-751 nightmare...

April 2021: N-400 denial received citing recent I-751 denial as basis for ineligibility, even though it should have been a combo interview 🤯

I AM JACK'S COMPLETE LACK OF SURPRISE

 

I-751 Service Motion - March 2021 [Sent via FedEx & COMPLETELY IGNORED by USCIS]

March 2021: Service Motion request sent overnight addressed direectly to field office director, requesting urgent review and re-opening, based on errors in adjudication - citing USCIS policy, AFM and memorandums as basis for errors. This was completely ignored by USCIS.

 

I-290B - April 2021 [Withdrawn]

April 2021: I-290B motion to re-open ($675) filed 

 

I-751 #3 - June 2021 [Pending]

June 2021: I-751 #3 (27lbs of paperwork) & another $680 sent to USCIS via FedEx ($300+..thanks) .... IT'S GROUNDHOG DAY

June 2021: Receipt issued, card charged, biometrics waived, infopass scheduled for I-551 stamp number ten.....

Feb 2022: RFIE (no, not an RFE, a Request For Initial Evidence) received, for copies of the divorce paperwork that they already have 😑
