I'm moving to another state, and I dont want my case to be delayed further, Can I use a relative address as my new address for my pending case ?
Technically, that would be a violation to update the address as you will not be residing there. Your change of address will not cause a delay in asylum cases, however, the national case load of asylum cases will affect the case processing regardless of your change of address.

You are supposed to use the address you actually live in. Using any other address might be considered misrepresentation and serve as grounds for denial.

Use your ACTUAL address; If you are moving, presumably you HAVE a new address.
This does not constitute legal advice or the engagement of my services as an attorney.
You have to update USCIS witht he address where you reside.
The bigger issue is that moving around from office location to office location will delay your interview. You need to stop moving around, stay put and deal with your asylum case. You also need to hire an attorney who can:
1. Go over your application to see if it meets the LEGAL STANDARD for asylum - dyou know what it is?
2. Submit documents and declarations on your behalf to strengthen your application
3. Attend the interview with you
4. Make arguments after the interview to apply the FACTS to the LEGAL STANDARD which can make or break a tough case.
Pro per/Pro se litigants fail at an alarming rate. You need to hire an attorney immediately.
