Immigration Issues/485 after 130 granted
I am a naturalized US citizen. I married someone 12/06 who was initially
here on a student visa and was on OPT until Feb 2007. I filed the I-130 on
Jan and I received notice it was approved two weeks ago. On the approval
notice it said that she was not eligible to file a 485 and that her file was sent
to NVC. I called NVC and they didn't have the file yet but they said I could
still file a 485.
Can I still file a 485 at this time for an adjustment of status? She is currently
still in the US.
Yes - you should have filed the I-130 and I-485 together instead of filing the I-130 first. Give them all the forms for the I-485 package and supporting docunments and give them a copy of the I-130 approval. File before mid June when the fees go up.
