4. Schedule A expired.
5. Application moved to Eb3.

In June 2007
1.Employer B (Moved in June 2007 via H1b transfer).

Married in 2008.

April 2010.
1. Employer B.
2. New I-140 filed in EB2, approved.
3. Ported EB3 PD of Aug 2006.

May 2011.
1. PD will be current in June 2011.
2. I need apply I-485 for my spouse.

Do I need to re-apply for I-485 and G-235a for the principal applicant.

I just finished doing that (in March) my lawyer only filed 485 for my spouse, once the documents for her were received by USCIS, we sent a interfiling letter to use I140 from Eb2 for my 485.

I got approved in 3 days after they received their letter and my wife got her GC in 2 months.

Good Luck

Can you please let me know which service center (Texas or Nebraska) processed yours and your wife's I485 application.

If you don't mind can you please let me know how long it took to receive I-485 receipt notice and Finger print notice (for your wife).

My situation is

Priority date is 08/01/06 (EB2). Becoming current on June 1st 2011. Need to add my wife as dependent to my green card process (she is in US in H4 status now). Texas Service Center is processing my I-485.

Hello,

I am also in the same situation. I filed 485 in July 2007 and got married later. I will be filing my wife's 485 in June. I was wondering how long will it take for her to get her 485 approved.

Is it a good idea to start a thread to track spouse I-485 filing post July '07 approvals?

Thanks!

It's a good idea to have dedicated for this topic (as this is becoming common issue for all who couldn't add their spouses earlier...)

I have started the following thread

http://immigrationvoice.org/forum/fo...ml#post2594710

Either we can follow the current one or the one I started (link above) or we can start a new thread altogether

I am fine with any of the above.

My husband received his receipt number for his I-485, 765 applications with A number of the principal applicant on it. Is that expected?

Can someone please share if it was the same case for you?

Thanks.
