I am a US citizen and my wife the conditional resident. Some documents that we have WITH BOTH OF OUR NAMES ON THEM like car insurance, registration, car title, tax transcripts of 2014- 2015, credit card statements (my wife is an authorized user) and my driver's license issued before I get married, show my address when I was still single. WHICH IS THE SAME SINCE MY WIFE AND I GET MARRIED, BUT DIFFERENT FLOORS. When I was single I used to live in the 2nd floor, but we have lived in the 1st floor since we got married. I forgot to do the change, because It was not a big deal for me. Besides, my parents live upstairs, so we are all family. However, we are a little worried about it now. What can I do in this case? Can it cause any problems with Immigration? Thanks for your help!!!
Immigration law is changing almost daily now and it is unwise to put it charitably to try to represent yourself in an immigration matter. Trying to handle any immigration matter yourself is unwise. You really need to retain immigration counsel and have the attorney handle this. Do not attempt to do anything yourself.
Only an Immigration attorney has the expertise to properly fill out immigration forms and put together the right package of documents and other evidence to support the immigration benefits you are trying to obtain. However, especially in these turbulent times, you really need to retain an immigration attorney. This is not a do-it-yourself project! You should focus on retaining experienced immigration counsel, especially now that immigration is much more restrictive since Trump is now President. Immigration is a very complex area of law. It is a lot more than merely filling out forms. You need to retain an immigration attorney to handle all immigration proceedings. This prevents errors that can sometimes prove costly and may even be irreversible. You should always seek to obtain the best attorney that you can afford and not let geographic restrictions stand in the way. Some immigration attorneys will charge a consultation fee, however those that do so, will give full credit if you retain their law firm. Do not let geographic restrictions prevent you from obtaining the best possible attorney. Good luck.

More information is needed, but it can be of concern and the cause of delay.
The concern over and use of an acquaintance or friend from the same apartment building trying to help is certainly one element of an immigration marriage fraud profile. If the apartments are different, then the official can refer the matter for investigation.
This may prompt delay and a referral to the local district office for further review, result in further scrutiny and delay adjudication. You have the right to hire an experienced immigration attorney, but if you delay retaining counsel and/or complications take place, then it may take more effort to explain the confusion.

For an evaluation of the evidence in your case and any potential problems, you need to consult with a lawyer. This forum is not adequate.
