My I-485 receipt and FP notices were sent back to USCIS by the postal department as undeliverable. Then I went ahead and changed my address on the USCIS website.

sargon,

How did you change the address for I-485 applications etc (using AR11 ) without having the receipt No ?

I am afraid that I will be in a similar situation. I moved after applying for I-485


Thanks

Default i-485 Receipt no is printed on the back of the encashed check.

No. I changed the address in two steps. First I changed my address using Alien registration no., which I knew from my I-140 approval copy. Then I changed the address for my I-485 application, whose receipt no. I fortunately knew from the photocopies of the checks cashed. If you happen to get the photocopies of the checks from your bank, you will notice that on its back CIS prints the receipt no of your application.

Exclamation No Mail Forwarding allowed for USCIS correspondence

First of all, we must keep in mind ,that UPS do not allowed to use mail forwarding service for USCIS correspondence!

We have to be extremely careful with the address changing.

I think this is how process works:

Whenever USCIS sends to a addres if thats not deliverable ,it goes back but USPS also sends info that sender has moved. Then USCIS should resend to thatnew address independent of whetheru have filed AR11 or not.

USCIS never gets updated for atleast 2 weeks after AR11 filed. Even after i have filed AR11 it took 2 weeks for them to update.

lvinaykumar: Get a copy of the FP notice from your attorney, and do a walk-in to the same application support center and explain them that you have not received a FP notice and you are doing a walk-in based on the courtesy copy from the attorney. Usually, Wednesday is a good day to walk-in.

If you do not put your name and your spouse name or whoever applied for any immigration process in your mail box, the USCIS WILL not deliver any documents. So do not sit idle if you have not changed your address after filing 485. Make sure you have all the names in the mail box.

I was told that they will usually let the first time slide but if you miss a second appointment without trying to reschedule they will then consider your application abandoned. Try not to worry to much- you should be fine!! Best of luck to you

On the FP notice it is clearly written:- "If you fail to appear as scheduled, your application will be considered abandoned." Is it checkmate for me? Or do I still have hope?

I tried to call USCIS, but getting blocked by answering machine. I want to speak to someone from USCIS offices. What is the quickest way to reach a representative?

I know this thread is old. I missed my appointment on Friday before Labor day weekend. I looked around multiple threads but no recent posts regarding it. So, I am posting my experience.
I went to Santa Clara, CA office (That is where my original appointment was) on Tuesday early morning and they added me to waiting list. Told me they will take me whenever a slot is available but it may take hour or more. I was done in 30 mins.
