Hi all,

Thank you. Appreciate any replies.

Default AR-11 online form

I am in the same situation.

My understanding is just fill up AR-11 form.

I did it online. and got confirmation saying the address is updated.

No Consequences. Just fill out the AR-11 form (Step 1) online and make sure to update the address on all the pending applications (Step 2).
You will get a confirmation mail about your address change to your new address.

Default AR - 11 Questions...

But, AR 11 Doesn't ask anything about a pending 485, so my question is (i guess), how does USCIS know that I have an I485 pending without my specifying it along with AR 11 ?

When you fill out the AR-11 form and are ready to submit, there will be an question/option asking you if you have any pending cases with USCIS..When you select that, it will allow you to enter the receipt numbers there....Note that you will have to do this for each and every individual and not just the head of the household.....(I am not sure about the minors though)

It would not hurt doing it again on your 485. It happened to me. I did an AR 11 online address change and my EAD and AP petitions had LUDs. I did it on my 485 again and then the LUD on my wife's 485 was updated and I did it again on my 485 and finally there was LUD on my petition and we also recieved a mail from USCIS that the address change as been recorded

Default Just call them once and make sure if no LUD !

USCIS computer systems doesn't always behave as expected. The trigger that updates the LUD after a external system update may not fire

So not seeing a LUD after AR11 should not be a big worry but its better to stay clear or take any chances. Just give them a quick call, ask for 485 receipt no. and verify the address.

There is another thing you can do if you have time and scope - I didn't see a LUD after 485, so the next morning i straightaway took a Infopass and headed for Local USCIS center. They confirmed me about the address change and surprisingly i saw a LUD on my 485 just after coming back to work ( in 2 hrs time) USCIS local offices is also capable to giving you joy and surprise

What I did:
-----------
1) Notify USPS for change of address -family and then moved to new state
2) Open a new bank account the day I moved and instructed manager to
fedex me the " balance -statement" same day. and thus created a record
same day.
3) On the 3rd day I got USPS change of address proof.
4) On the fourth day I applied to USCIS online for address change
5) On fifth day I mailed printed AR-11 forms to USCIS for all family members.

Note: (1) I got LUDs on all 485 for this
(2) I got uSCIS letter for all family members for this adress change
except me.

I have a question.

Do we have to update address on Approved EAD and AP applications along with the I-485 or just the Pending I-485 is enough?
