I just got mine in Albuquerque, New mexico. I dropped off the deed to my Mexico house, passport and two passport photos to the Mexican Consulate here. I didn't have three months bank statements so I gave them a checking account statement showing a $48,000 balance.
I came back two days later and the FM3 was ready. Actually, when I arrived the nice young man at the counter said he had put everything in the mail. When he saw my extremly disapointed expression (I leave Monday), he stuck out his tongue and laughed. Then he brought me my documents.
Though they asked for my current address, no one asked how long I lived there. My guess is the address of the Motel 6 would do.
BTW, I'm not nearly of retirement age. If your state is picky about that detail, you may want to apply here.
