Interfiling I485?

Recommended Posts

I am eligible for both FB as well as EB based I-485 (PD current either ways). I don't want to submit two I-485s to cause delays. If one has submitted EB (1-140), and later wants to switch to FB (I-130) faster process, is this permissible as per law? Is it just a written explanation that needs to be provided? 

Ps: What if I have used the interim EAD/AP associated with EB and then what happens if I decide to switch to FB, does it matter?

It is possible to change the underlying immigrant petition, if the PD for that petition is current. Has no effect on an EAD because the EAD is based on the I-485, not the I-130 or I-140.

Excellent response. Especially clarifying the EAD logic , makes sense. I had read the Murthy article on this a while ago, but wasn't clear on the EAD part. Thank you!
