My brother filed an immigrant visa petion for me about a decade ago. At the time I was in US on a non immigrant visa so he wrote down my address in US and checked that I will be filing for AOS in US. I am no longer in US so I will be doing consular processing. How does one go about informing National Visa center. Will they contact my brother when my priority date becomes current.? My brother address has stayed the same since the filing of the case but my address in US is no longer valid.

If the I-130 petition is already approved, your brother can file form I-824 requesting USCIS to notify the consulate where you will be applying for your immigrant visa and thereby letting them know that your will be consular processing rather than filing for adjustment. The sooner the I-824 the better so that it will be in process before your priority date becomes current and they can transfer the case to the NVC for immigrant visa processing without delay. You can also go online to USCIS.gov and change your address by completing and submitting Form AR-11. If you need assistance with the I-824 and consular processing, you can contact me at 301-355-6215 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
