  • Mailing Address Change not Residence Address

    We are using my husband's sister's house as our mailing address for immigration letter since his sister was not going to move for a while. However, she recently sold the house and will move into a new house next month and we want to change our mailing address. My question is that there is no mailing address on the form AR-11 and wondering which form I should pick to fill out the mailing address?? When we applied for I485 and I130, our lawyer to fill out all the forms and recomended us to put the mailing address which is different from our residence.

      Do you know the meaning of the word "misrepresentation?"

      Anyway, how do you cover up a lie? Lie again!

        Does anyone knows how to change only mailing address?? We don't want to change residence address. Immigration has our residence address with them that is different from mailing address.

            Myumyu, my dear. Mailing/residence address is a key info esp. in a marriage-based petition like yours to establish the legit cohabitation by the USC & alien spouses and a pre-requisite to overcome the good faith marriage burden. Why can't you use officially your actual residence? Piece of advice, you better make up your mind, quick. If you don't know it yet since last month, you can do the change electronically: http://www.uscis.gov/AR-11, good luck.

              The reason why we chose sister's house address is to keep the same address while processing. We already moved twice apartment when we moved we filed AR-11 and informed local office the change of resident address. They are still sending mail to sister's house, not our apt so that they know we have mailing address and resident address. If not, they send letter to our apartment since they have our address. I saw many ad talking about how immigration still mail to the old address. If we put our apartment address, then we move, then we don't know who will be in our address to inform us about mail if immigration send it to our old address. If the address is someone's house, we can tell them to infor us later.

                  1. Use AR-11 to change your address. You would file it at the following address:
                  Department of Homeland Security
                  Change of Address
                  PO Box 7134
                  London, KY 40742-7134

                  Or if you are sending the form overnight
                  Department of Homeland Security
                  Change of Address
                  1084 S Laurel Rd
                  London, KY 40742-7134.

                  If you have filed for AOS, you would need to check with your local office to see if they have a procedure to change the mailing address. Generally, it is the same info on AR-11, but in letter format.

                  I would recommend you send the form at least certified.

                  Myumyu,
                  Basically changing your mailing address and your residence address is basically the same thing. Since your mailing address is no longer valid, use AR-11 to change the address. And the reason is that USCIS does not recognize the difference between mailing and residence address on most forms.

                  However, if your adjustment of status used your new perm address and you supplied also a mailing address, you may want to call USCIS customer service to change the mailing address and state that the perm address is still valid.

                    But none of that is what he wants to do!

                    He wants to make the USCIS believe he's always resided in one place where he's never resided at, while moving from place to place without their knowledge!

                      I understand why he was using the address since he was constantly moving to temporary residences. The AR-11 deals only with permanent moves, not any move, Dmar. And considering that one can make a reasonable argument that the two moves were temporary until a permanent residence can be establish is very common. There was no misrepresentation whatsoever, especially when the OP stated the address was used as a mailing address, not his principle address also shows no misrepresentation.

                      So tell me genius, what would you say when an alien lives in a rural area with NO 911 address (that means they are using a PO Box as a mailing address)? Are you going to tell them they are misrepresented too?

                      I hate to say this, but your ex has done much better with a person dumber than a brick.

                          A mailing address you change with the Postal Service, not the USCIS. Being that he's moved quite a few times already, he should know this by now.

                          But regardless of, form AR-11 gives you the option for both a permanent and a mailing address. Why the OP says it doesn't is beyond my understanding.

                            The website for Online change address (AR-11) is

                            https://egov.immigration.gov/crisgwi/go?action=coa

                            After change your address to the new one, then you will need to change the address for your each pending case (if you have any). Then print out the last page wtih ref# and keep this as a proof.

                            Next, call NCSC 1-800 number to change your address. Also you will need to provide your each case number to them. I was told on the phone that I don't need to mail the address change to my local office if call this number for change.

                              There are very clear and precise instructions on how to inform USCIS of your new address, and when filing the AR-11 alone will suffice. These are delineated in the AR-11 instructions. Succinctly, the AR-11 serves to inform USCIS of the alien's whereabouts (a recent update to the requirements spelled out int he INA and age-old, that each alien resident report his or her physical whereabouts to USCIS every Janaury). The AR-11 does not change your address, per se, and as such, if the alien has pending petitions then he/she should not simply rely on the AR-11 as a notification of a Change of Address. Calling and following up with correspondence with the Service Centre and the local office (if applicable) should also be undertaken to make sure the forms, pertinent to the pending petitions that are residing in the alien's pending case file, also reflect the change as well.
                              The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.
