I485 filing when dependent is not in country

Recommended Posts


Thanks for reading my post. 

My date might be current in next, November, Visa Bulletin for EB3, even if this is a prediction and pure speculation, I want to make sure I understand certain steps.

  1. My application is in EB2, so I have to downgrade from EB2 to EB3 and file I-140 and I-485 at same time? Is this correct?
  2. I am sure lawyers are busy and they make take time to apply for all these, how much time they take and I guess they have to send by end of November, is it right?
  3. Do my spouse who is dependent on me, have to be in US while filing for I-485? 
  4. Do I need original birth certificate for my I-485 from from my home country and specifically the city or district I was born in ? 
  5. Can I get online birth certificate , will that be acceptable?

Thanks for reading my post.
