I bought a house and moved to another city 3 years ago. I hold a green card and I forgot to inform USCIS about my change of address. I’m scheduled to file my green card renewal in two months. Will I be in trouble? What was your experience?

You dont have to inform them of an address change if you are a green card holder.

When you file your renewal. Just make sure to update your address on the application.

Most non-U.S. citizens are required to report a change of address within 10 days of moving, so I would be very careful of telling a LPR they don’t have to. Failure to report the change of address is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $200, up to 30 days jail time and or deportation.

Good to know!!

Is that welcome guide something new? They definitely never gave me or any of my brothers i came up with that guide?
Well I have no idea when you or your brothers got your green cards but it’s been around for years. It used to get mailed in printed form i believe, now it’s online. In any case I was certainly very aware of the requirement to file change of address when I got my green card, around 5 years ago.

Edit: one thing I saw said originally published 2005, not sure if that’s accurate or if it was earlier
