Answer
Go to the Court and advise them you are married to a citizen and ask for an adjournment of your hearing to allow the Trial Attorney to adjudicate the I-130 petition. If you filed with the Chicago Lockbox and not the Trial Attorney you made a mistake, but you can provide the Trial Attorney with a duplicate original of the I-130 filing. Then ask the Court for a change of venue to Florida and you should get a marriage interview and Court date in Florida. Once your I-130 is approved, the Judge can approve the I-485. Do not withdraw the asylum until after the marraige case is approved.
