We didnt file the i-485 with the i-130

***I am new here so if I am in the wrong place to be asking this, I'm sorry...

My husband is a US citizen. We are married and both residing in the US.

I entered the US with a tourist visa/B2 until it expired when I overstayed.

2 months ago, we filed the i-130 Petition for Alien Relative along with G-325A and i-134 Affidavit of Support, and within a couple of weeks, we recieved our i-797C NOA. The case is still in initial review.

I recently came across this site and learned that we should've filed the i-485 (with i-765 and i-131) along with the i-130. This is what happens when you dont have an attorney :(

Anyway, did we mess up? Can we file the i-485 while the i-130 is still being processed? or should we wait until the i-130 has been approved?

Thank you so much!

You don't need a lawyer at all you will be fine. You got your 797 receipt so now you wait for the 130 to be approved. Yes unfortunately you could have sent in the 765 and 131 for work auth and AP but You can send them off I am sure with copy of your 797 . Someone else will chime in if I am incorrect.

Sorry I can't really help with this. Did you read the guide here in VJ?

I don't think it happened because you didn't have a lawyer. Lawyers sometimes make mistakes like this one too.

You don't have to wait until the I-130 is approved. You can send in your I-485 packet and include a copy of the Initial Notice Of Action you received for the I-130 (NOA1). Then the two applications will meet up after a while and your application will change to a CONCURRENT I-130/I-485 application.

You will also need a I-864 and a medical and a whole lot of other things. Study up on the VJ guides before you send out your I-485 packet. Good luck!

i actually applied for I-130 first... or should i say, my husband did file for the I-130 first because that's what he thought.

then i knew we should just file I485 AND I130 and I765 together, but i just didn't bother.

It would be even better in my opinion, to send I-485 with I-765 when you get your receipt letter (NOA1) for the I-130 or better yet, if you are approved from I-130 already. But when you file I-485, make sure to attach a copy of NOA from I-130 so it will state that you have an I-130 application pending. :)
