Pending I-485 - Filing I485 for Spouse

Recommended Posts


My I485 (EB2) application is pending with USCIS, but now (July 2011 bulletin) my priority date is current. I was not married at the time I filed I485. I am still on H1.

My questions are:

1. Can we file my spouse's I485 now? She is currently with me in US on H4.

2. Or I can apply for her only after my I485 is approved?

3. I ask this because of this instruction in the I485 instruction in the instruction form I downloaded from USCIS website.

"If the spouse or child is in the United States, the individual derivatives may file their Form I-485 with Form I-485 for the principal applicant, or file Form I-485 at anytime after the principal is approved, if a visa number is available.

Thank you for your time!

Please help.
