Filing I-131 with I-485 Pending Questions

Timeline

I came to the USA in November on a k-1 visa, got married in December 2019 and submitted by I-485 and I-765 in January 2020. Both applications are pending, and paused because of COVID-19. I did not file an I-131 because I misunderstood the instructions and thought that there was a separate filing fee from I-485 and couldn't afford it. I have learned that this is not the case, and that if filed concurrently with an I-485 pending, that the fee is waived. I am wondering if anyone has filed their I-131 after their I-485 and if this is allowed? Is the fee still waived?

Also, as I am not a permanent or conditional permanent resident yet, would I be applying for a reentry permit, or an advance parole document?

Yes, fee is waived.   You submit a copy of your I797 for the i485 as proof


YMMV

Thank you! That is helpful.

Do you also happen to know the second part of my question? I am not currently a permanent resident or conditional permanent resident as my initial i485 is still pending. So would I be applying for a reentry permit as a conditional PR, or would I be applying for an advance parole document?

Thanks again for your help!
