Default Moving out of State

Hi Everybody
My Case is pending after the interview(July 2006) due to background
check. My wife And I planning to move from NY to CA. What happens to
my case after changing address? Does my case move with me or I will get
decision on my case from NY office? Is there any disadvantage of moving
at this stage of my case?

Thanks for any feedback.

You can't get out a background check by moving to a new state.

We are not moving to get out a background check. We are moving because
my wife got a job offer over CA. Now the case going to move to CA or
stay in NY. Again thanks for your feedback.

Ah well at least you are buying some time before one of you gets sent back to
your home country.

Why they have to send one of us back? Does background check means that
they have to send one of us back???

Your case will be pending for a longer time after you move. Nobody can
predict what is going to happen to your case.

I think I answered you in another post you might have done....but yes, your case will move with you when you move, if you send in the proper change of address notification. The disadvantage to moving would be that your change of address might not get through to USCIS (as has been known to happen), and you will be left in limbo. There's still no way to predict how long the security check will take, but once it's finished, your new district office will get word of it (if your change of address and file forwarding happened correctly).

Best Wishes,
Rene

I would make the decision to move or not based on the job offer. It may delay you or it may not. But, immigrations is too unpredictable.

It is not quite that easy. The change of address, form A-11, is sent in for the Homeland Security. It is rarely given to the USCIS. You have to send notification of your move to the New York Office that is handling your case and a letter to the new district office in California where the case should be transferred. I would then call the 1-800 misinformation number to tell them the change of address and then call them again in 2 weeks to confirm the change has been made. Then in 6 or 8 weeks get an infopass appointment for the California district office and tell them in person.
