you can apply for the 485 is your priority date is current in the latest visa bulletin


Secondly if i have already applied I485 do i just wait and keep checking the priority date on USCIS website ?

Yes, thats mostly all you can do. You could also try opening an SR or taking an INFOPASS appointment to check the status of your case.

During this time if me and myspouse are separated how would that affect the process i am the primary petitioner and he is dependant ...

you wont be affected. his case is a gray area. IN general a case lasts only as long as the relationshp with the petitioner does, but a recent case on Murthy was interesting:
Murthy Law Firm Obtains I-485 for Spouse Legally Separated

Arrow Welcome to IV.

kewlpal007,

Whether you wait in line or not depends on

1. Your country of chargeability( usually origin country).
2. Your EB category ( EB1, EB2, EB3 )
3. Priority Date ( Date which you filed for your Labor incase of EB2/3 or I-140, in case of EB1)


If you are from India,China and NOT in EB1, you may have to wait in line for 10 years or more.

With out your details, you'll only hear vague and not so useful answers.
Please complete your profile on IV; that way you get to hear more suitable answers. You don't need to enter any of your personal details. ( Just your PD, country etc, check others profiles if you are wary about entering details.)


Thanks,
Leo07
