The couple will need to wait until their case is transferred to the National Visa Center (NVC) to update their mailing address. In the meantime, they should update their mail forwarding so that any mail gets sent to their new address. However, even if they miss the Form I-130 approval notice, their NVC Welcome Letter will be emailed to both the sponsor and the spouse seeking a green card and their case status will be updated once they’ve been approved.
