This form is making me feel genuinely stupid.

Part 2. Application Type

I am filling this out for my wife. I am a natural born citizen, she was on a B-1 tourist visa when we were married.

She did not enter as K-1. She is not cuban. No where does it say spouse in simple terms.

This is the form: http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-485.pdf

Please help!

Thank you so much. I thought it was that but it was worded so strangely. I'm guessing that's what the I-130 does. It says to attach a copy of hte approval notice or something, do I have to attach a copy of the form I-130 that I'm filing? Or do I have to wait for them to acknowledge the receipt of the I-130 before I can file I-435?

I suppose you are filing Concurrent, if this is the case you dont have to add any copy since the I-130 is already in the package and this form is the one that gives your spouse an immigrant visanumber (basically)...... you can read about this here...

Any more questions just ask hope I can help. :goofy:

Thank you, I was on that site, however I was under hte impression that the 435 and 130 went to different places?

It says concurrent filing cannot occur in consular processed cases, but I don't know what that means.

Do i put both the files in the same envelope?

The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) offers an individual two primary paths to permanent resident status (a green card). An individual who is the beneficiary of an approved immigrant petition and has an immigrant visa number immediately available may apply at a U.S. Department of State consulate abroad for an immigrant visa in order to come to the United States and be admitted as a permanent resident. This pathway is referred to as “consular processing.” So since you are applying from the USA not other country you are not a consular processing. :goofy:

Yes everything same envelope..... I say everything because I-130 include G325A for both of you and 485 needs I-864 and if you want I-131 and I-765... (last too are optional and free since you are applying I485).

I'm working on the i-765 and stuck on section 16, who may file the form i-765. My wife's last visa type was B-2, she entered as J-1, we met, dated, her J-1 was ending and we renewed under status B-2 tourist. However it has since expired and we're in overstay status.

When I read "who may file" I cannot find a section that seems appropriate for her.

http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-765instr.pdf

Can someone shed some light on this?

Follow the 1st pag in the instruction sheet......

I think your wife is a family-base non-immigrant .......page 4 follow #7 letter A.. © (9).. since she is asking for an adjustment of status..

Page 4

7.EAD Applicants Who have filed for adjustment of status

A) Adjustment Applicant--©(9).

File Form I-765 with a

copy of the receipt notice or other evidence that your

Form I-485, Application for Permanent Residence or

Adjust Status, is pending. You may file Form I-765

together with your Form I-485

Hope this help a little... :goofy:
