Hi finally GC

Congrats on receiving ur GC. Wanted to check if you filed your wife's I-485 after ur physical card was received?

I thought one needs to file dependent's I-485 before the primary's 485 is approved as once the I-485 is approved, you are no more in H status, . Can u explain this? I am in similar boat and looking for advice.

As i mentioned above, our lawyer applied my wife's GC *AFTER* i received my physical card. The reason being my new I140 under EB2 and my pending I485 applied in 07 August got approved at the SAME time. Even though my wife lost her H4 status after i received my physical card, i think she still has 180 days to file her I485. But its advisable to apply ASAP I485 for your partner once your I485 is approved.
