Not adding spouse in I-485 application


Recommended Posts

I will be applying I-485 under EB2 category and would like to know


- If it's legal not to add spouse name in I-485 application even though we are legally not separated (note I have mentioned spouse details in my I-140 application)


-If later I would like to apply for her I-485 or sponsor for her green card under FB category it is allowed even though I have not mentioned spouse name in I-485 application.


Appreciate any clarification on this.

There is no such thing as "adding the spouse", and by the same token, no such thing as "not adding the spouse". The spouse files his/her own I-485 (no, you can't do it "for her"), and if your I-485 is approved, the spouse still remains eligible to file under your category.
