I'm filling the I-130 form Petition for Alien Relative for my wife. I need help in completing one question please

Asked over 1 year ago - Mesa, AZ

The form asks where the relative intends to live, but what if that address is likely to change shortly after being permitted into the US? Once she is allowed to stay we intend to move. We are concerned that if we change addresses immediately after her arrival that the USCIS might not like it or revoke her.

    Answered . Most non-U.S. citizens must report a change of address within 10 days of moving within the United States or its territories.

    To ensure your address is updated, complete firm AR-11. You may also choose to contact the National Customer Service Center (800-375-5283).

    Or, you may complete the firm on-line. The following link will provide more info: https://egov.uscis.gov/crisgwi/go?action=coa.Terms
