Did You Know? A Sponsor For An Affidavit of Support Must File A Change Of Address Within 30 Days Or Risk A Penalty

A person (sponsor) who signs a financial affidavit of support on behalf of an immigrant is required, by federal law, to notify the U.S. Attorney General, as well as the State in which the sponsored immigrant is currently living, within 30 days of the sponsor’s change of address.

Failure of the sponsor to notify the government of a change of address can result in a civil penalty of not less than $250 and not more than $2,500. In addition, if the sponsor is aware that the sponsored immigrant is receiving public benefits and fails to notify the government of a change of address the fine is not less than $2,000 and not more than $5,000.
