Is it possible to change location of green card interview?

Asked over 1 year ago - Lexington, KY

Just received notification of interview time and date but we are moving from our current address the week before. Can we reschedule for an office closer to our new home?

You have to follow the local rules of the USCIS district office where your interview is currently scheduled at in order to request that your file be transferred to the district office that will have jurisdiction over your new place of residence. That could tremendously delay your case. I think it's best when you do your best to attend the interview.
