My question is that i got an appoval of the petition 131. But then it goes on to say that the evidence inidcates that I am not eligible to file for adjustment of status application based on the information that was submitted. Does this mean?

Give me your immigration history so I can see where the issue is. When did you enter? - what status? - how did you maintain status? - who is sponsoring you for residence?

Answer
You got an approval of I-130 not I-131. You are eligible to adjust and should have filed I-130 and I-485 packet not just I-130. You can file I-485 packet now. Let me know if you need a great attorney to process your paperwork!!!
