Question When to file AR-11?

My I-140 is still pending at NSC.
I am planning to change my apartment. Same city, different zipcode, better deal!
Please advise when is AR-11 to be filed, is it based on lease start date or actual move date?

Here is my question:
In order to avail the deal, I need to "move-in" by 05.05.2009. So my lease at the new place will start on 05.05.2009.
Due some reasons, I cannot physically into the apartment till 05.16.2009. I will still be in my old apartment until then.

So when do I need to file an AR-11 form, by 05.15.2009 (10 days after my lease starts) OR 05.26.2009 (10 days after which I am physically in the new apartment)?

If unsure, go with the lease date. No harm informing USCIS earlier. I've changed my address before and trust me...it is a freaking mess. Here's my advice:

1) If you file online, make sure you save yr receipt. If paper file, make sure it is certified/registered mail.

2) 1 to 2 months after filing, schedule an Infopass and ask the officer to verify the updated address.

IMO you need to fill AR11 only once you vacate your old apartment. If you want file AR11 earlier, you can do it. Since you own(rent) both apartments till 05.16.2009 you can retain your old address till 05.16.2009 and file AR11 before 05.26.2009.

After filing AR11, call USCIS customer service to verify the address change. (Don't misuse infopass for such basic stuff).

gc28262,
I respectfully disagree. As you all know, the USCIS (online and phone) system is completely different from Infopass. What appears on the former is usually inaccurate. I know this because both my wife and I have received our GC but our online I-140 is still pending.

I am adament about this because I moved in Jan 08 and submitted AR-11. In July 08, my wife online status shows that a RFE was sent. We waited anxiously for 2 months for this letter. Then we went to Infopass and found out that they still have the old address. By the way, my address was updated. Few days after Infopass, the letter finally came. It was enclosed in another envelope (because the orginal bounced and USCIS resent to new address).

I think everyone should use Infopass frequently. Use it to check if your name check and biometric are cleared. Asked if there's any flag. Where your case is physically and of course your current address. I go to the Boston office all the time and it is usually empty in the morning. Whether the Infopass office is packed or empty has nothing to do with when you'll get your GC; there's 6 counters and I doubt they'll increase it if there're more people.

fittan,
Thanks for your reply.

But i dont have any application pending with USCIS.
My I-140 is pending but that belongs to my employer,correct?
So I am confused if I should use InfoPass or not.

I understand the 10-day rule, but when does the clock start?
The date of lease starting or the date of actual move.....ideally these shouldnt be too far apart, but in my case they will be, hence the confusion.
