You can have more than one case pending, but to answer your question fully, we'd need to know more about your old case.

- How did you come to the USA?

- Who filed the I-130 for you? Based on what?

- Why did it take 10+ years without action?

- Did you inform anyone (USCIS) about you leaving and wanting to abandon the old case?

Just how did you file I-130 for yourself? That's a family based petition and the petitioner has to be either a USC or LPR and you were neither. You also can't self-petition I-130. Are you sure you didn't file some other form?

What form did YOU file? Couldn't have been I-130 as it clearly says who can file the form and an alien filing for himself is not on the list: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-130instr.pdf

There seems to be some confusing. If you filed a I-130 and you weren't married your petition would have been denied right up front. It;s a Family based petition not work based so you would have been ineligible. Sop 10 years later it should be of no issue.

Since you said you filed did you get a I-797C? That would have had your case# on it so you can see if there were any updates. Did you ever call USCIS to find out the status of petition.

Now you are filing a I-130 which is the correct petition to bing an immideate relative to the US.

what was the name of the exact visa category you filed under, these 10 years ago ?

Forget about form numbers for a moment - what, exactly, was the name of the visa category?

When you came on a tourist visa, what status did you adjust to? How? You can't just decide to stay- someone had to file the adjustment for you.

I wonder if it was an old 245i case.

Anyway the important thing is that when you left you had a valid I 94 to hand in, that you maintained legal status during your time in the US.

Otherwise you will be looking at also needing a waiver for illegal presence.
