Happyday is on a distinguished road
Lightbulb Put Spouse's name on the mail box to prevent returning of green card mail to USCIS

Reminder: Those living in highrise apartments or large apartment complex should put up the names of their family members on the mail box such that the green card mails are not returned to the USCIS. Under the current USCIS policy, the U.S. Postal Services are not permitted to deliver the USCIS enevelope with "Return Requested" red stamp other than the specific individual named on the envelope. This is particularly true with the green card delivery.

I am putting an extra freshly painted mailbox with a big bold name in red color and a message-- 'Put my greencard here' for the postman.

Lets see how many years it will take for him to finally grant me my wish.

Is this really true? I have a job that requires me to move every few months....I was hoping to use a friend's address as he is permanently based at one location. Will this be a problem?

What is mandatory is that you have to provide YOUR address to get the GC. Your friend's address is not YOUR address. If you move after 6 months invoking AC21 or just buy a house down the street, you would need to notify USCIS about YOUR new address so they will send the GC to the new address.

Thanks,
Jayant

Yeah. Why not put a red stocking (christmas stocking) in the mail box tagged "For Greencards only. Do not put pizza hut coupons in here. This is for USCIS approval notices and greencards only".

Default You should be fine giving your friends address

Even I have moved a bit in the past and hence provided one address of a family member for all GC related communication.

A lot of times people have multiple properties that they rent out in one state and they themselves work and live in a seperate state. So you would be fine, else you would have to update your address every 4 months and will have to make sure by calling etc that the address was updated in time.

It's against the law not to provide CIS your new address within 10 days (?) of your move. FYI, it is mandatory even after you get GC...

i think there is a provision that if you are traveling for work every few months then you just need to provide your 'permanent' address not the 'temporary' address.
