About Immigration Change of Address
Why is it important to file EOIR-33 after the minor you are sponsoring moves addresses?
If the minor has moved, they must notify the court within five days of changing addresses. If the minor does not inform the court of a change of address, the court may send important correspondence of the minor’s case to their previous address. If the minor misses an important notice because the address was not updated with the court, the minor will be responsible and their case may be affected.
