Questions with filling out forms

Hi there. My husband and I are in the process of getting our paperwork ready to send and there are a few things we need clarity on.

He is here on a B2 Visitor Visa.

I am a natural born US Citizen.

We are both currently inside the United States.

We are filing the I-130 package and the I-485 package simultaneously.

If you can help with one or more of the questions, I really appreciate it! Please be sure to specify which question you are answering.

Thanks for your help,

Rachael

Question #1: Regarding line #22 on the I-130 - What do I enter into the blanks for specific City and State?

22. Complete the information below if your relative is in the United States and will apply for adjustment of status.

Your relative is in the United States and will apply for adjustment of status to that of a lawful permanent resident at the USCIS office in:

City:__________________________ State:________________________

Question #2: Regarding Applicant's Residence for the last five years on the G-325A - I am the USC and I have lived all over the place, however, I have always kept one "permanent address" on my state ID. Can I just list the address that I've kept on my state ID & that I've used for the majority of my mail? Or do I have to actually list every address that I've lived at and possibly received a little mail at?

Question #3: Regarding G-325A - I am the USC and I am filing a petition for my husband. In the box next to the signature it says: "This form is submitted in connection with an application for: Naturalization, Status as Permanent Resident, Other (choose one). My guess is that the correct choice is "Status as Permanent Resident", am I correct?

Question #4: Regarding Part 1 of the I-485

Current USCIS Status___________________ Expires on mm/dd/yyyy______________________

Are they asking for his I-94 status and expiration date or his visa status and expiration date?

Question #5: Regarding Part 2 of the I-485

The form reads: "I am applying for an adjustment to permanent resident status because:" and then lists options a - j. My husband and I have both read through all of the descriptions several times and we don't feel that any of them apply to us. Which one are we supposed to select for our situation?

List them all if you can. I listed even my college addresses - those were definitely ridiculously temporary.

Question #3: Regarding G-325A - I am the USC and I am filing a petition for my husband. In the box next to the signature it says: "This form is submitted in connection with an application for: Naturalization, Status as Permanent Resident, Other (choose one).

Yes.

Question #4: Regarding Part 1 of the I-485

Current USCIS Status___________________ Expires on mm/dd/yyyy______________________

Are they asking for his I-94 status and expiration date or his visa status and expiration date?

Current status: B2, Expires: Date on I-94

Question #5: Regarding Part 2 of the I-485

The form reads: "I am applying for an adjustment to permanent resident status because:" and then lists options a - j. My husband and I have both read through all of the descriptions several times and we don't feel that any of them apply to us. Which one are we supposed to select for our situation?

your situation is A. an immediate relative of a US citizen (spouse, children, parents) always has a visa number available.

Please read the instructions that come with each form and also the guides here on VJ. It saves a lot of time so people won't keep asking the same questions or questions that the instructions give you the answer to.
