Default Converting to LTR driving vs flying

My UKC husband’s visa has recently been approved. We plan to live in Massachusetts, but will likely spend a few weeks initially living with my mom now in Buffalo. This means we’d fly into Toronto, then drive over the border at Niagara Falls. Is the process for driving into the US the same as it would be if we flew into a US airport to convert his visa to a green card? Also, we wrote on his application we’d be living with my dad in Massachusetts because we genuinely thought that. Could there be any issues if our initial address is different than the application? Thank you!

It's the same.

No problem with the different address, just make sure upon entry that you give them the correct current address so they can mail the plastic green card to the right address.

Why are you wanting to change it to your mother's address if you are only going to be there for a few weeks. It is going to take longer than 3 weeks to get the green card so you will have to be changing the address for your husband and separately for yourself.

Long term resident? Not sure.

If it is that it's not the correct term for the US. It's LPR. Legal Permanent Resident.

Hadn't thought of that one. I was thinking perhaps they meant Legal Temporary Resident if the marriage was less than 2 years in length.
