My PERM is approved, and my priority date is current in October, but my I-140 is still pending. Do I have to wait for the I-140 to be approved before I can file my I-485?


No, there typically would be no need to wait. Under normal circumstances, if the priority date is current, it is possible to file an I-485 while the I-140 is still pending. (24.Sep.2020)
