8 CFR 213a.3 - Change of address.

§ 213a.3 Change of address.
(a) Submission of address change.
(1) Filing requirements. If the address of a sponsor (including a substitute sponsor or joint sponsor) changes while the sponsor's support obligation is in effect, the sponsor shall file a change of address notice within 30 days, in a manner as prescribed by USCIS on its address change form instructions.
(2) Proof of mailing. USCIS will accept a photocopy of the change of address form together with proof of the form's delivery to USCIS as evidence that the sponsor has complied with this requirement.
(3) Electronic notices. USCIS will provide the sponsor with a receipt notice for an address change.
(4) Alien sponsors. If the sponsor is an alien, the sponsor must still comply with the requirements of 8 CFR 265.1 to notify USCIS of his or her change of address.
(b) Civil penalty. If the sponsor fails to give notice in accordance with paragraph (a) of this section, DHS may impose on the sponsor a civil penalty in an amount within the penalty range established in section 213A(d)(2)(A) of the Act. Except, if the sponsor, knowing that the sponsored immigrant has received any means-tested public benefit, fails to give notice in accordance with paragraph (a) of this section, DHS may impose on the sponsor a civil penalty in an amount within the penalty range established in section 213A(d)(2)(B) ofthe Act. The procedure for imposing a civil penalty is established at 8 CFR part 280.
