EB-2 derivative Vs Family-based

Recommended Posts

I filed my EB-2 (PD India 4/2006) and recd. my green card last year. My wife could not file I-485 along with me because of being on a J-1 visa. She now has completed her 'waiver' requirements and eligible to file I-485. In the mean time, I also applied for a family-based petition and have an approved I-130. Wife was born in Singapore.

Should she file a I-485 as my EB-2 derivative or as Family-based F2A (PD 11/10/2012) - both categories are 'current', Is one quicker than the other? I presume her country of chargeability would be her country of birth (Singapore) rather than mine (India).

One difference would be a 2 year green card in FB category, but only if you have been married for less than 2 years. Otherwise, there is little difference.
