Costa Mesa, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: If I petition my mom living in Mexico while I live in California, do I have to remain in California the whole process?

I want to petition my mom in December when I turn 21. I live in California right now. But I also plan on moving to Nevada in April of next year, before the process is complete. Would that affect the legal process in any way?

A: No, you are not required to stay in the same place. When you move your case may move to a different office and will continue to process there.

A: No. You just want to make sure you update your contact information with USCIS.
