Filing for I130 and I485 concurrently

Hi VJers. My wife and I are working on our CR1 Application and would appreciate the help of experts. In the USCIS site we found that if she is here in the US when we apply, that we should concurrently file for I485, Adjustment of Status. Any comments or suggestions?

Now, regarding the forms, our questions are:

- In form I-130, do we state her address in the US (mine) if she applies from within the US? Or do we use her permanent residence?

- In form G-325A, 'This form is submitted in connection with an application for', do we include the I-130 Petition AND the I485 (Adjustment of status), as well as the Affidavit of Support?

- In the I-485, what should we fill out as the current USCIS status? And where can we locate her Non-immigrant visa number?

- Finally (and thanks for your patience) the affidavit of support. Do we first pay the $70 fee and THEN send the form?

Thanks and good luck with your applications.

I'm sure if you post your queries on the Adjustment of Status forum, you will get more helpful replies.

You would need to give a bit more information about what type of visa your wife is here on..

Should not her "new" permanent address now be the same as yours?

The G-325A submitted with the I-130 package should indicate I-130 (both for the petitioner and benneficiary)

The G-325A submitted in the I-485 package (alien applicant) should indicate I-485

No I-864 fee is payable as you will be dealing only with the USCIS (not the Department of State in this situation) and the USCIS does not charge a fee.

moving this thread to proper AOS forum

She is here on her Bi B2 Visa (visitor visa?). It was stamped for six months when she entered one month ago.

We married in Mexico before she entered the USA. Her residence is still in Mexico. Bank accounts, return airplane tickets etc. Our plan was to come up here and put together our documents for CR-1 filing and then she (we) would return to Mexico until it's finalized, then we discovered that she could stay here if we file the I-485.
