I recently married a green card holder, and my husband is getting ready to sponsor me for a green card. I was on H1B status, but just got laid off. Does this prevent me from filing my I-485 application based on the I-130 my husband is filing?


Assuming you are in your 60-day grace period, being laid off would generally not impact your ability to file your I-485 based on the I-130 petition filed by your husband. (16.May.2023)
