How to upgrade I-485 to immediate relative

I just found out that my ex husband is a registered voter in my states which implies that he received his citizenship. Based on the laws if he receives his citizenship my case also should be upgraded to the immediate relative category. As I was informed unfortunately USCIS doesn't do this automatically.

Now I wonder how to proceed. Is anybody done this before? Do I have to notify the Vermont where my original application went or the local office? Is there a specific letter to send?

Any input would be great.

She stated "ex husband" so I am assuming they are no longer legally married. Unless they are legally married but separated.

I am divorced. The divorce was finalized just a few days after I mailed out my vawa application.

However, this is what I read on the USCIS website under the laws section:

(II) Upon the lawful permanent resident spouse or parent becoming or establishing the existence of United States citizenship through naturalization, acquisition of citizenship, or other means, any petition filed with the Immigration and Naturalization Service and pending or approved under clause (ii) or (iii) on behalf of an alien who has been battered or subjected to extreme cruelty shall be deemed reclassified as a petition filed under subparagraph (A) even if the acquisition of citizenship occurs after d ivorce or termination of parental rights.

This is the reason I wonder if I can change my category and speed up the process.
