My I-140 is approved in the EB1 category and the priority date is current. I am in India, but will soon return to the U.S. My wife will not come to the U.S. for several months. When I arrive in the U.S., can I file the I-485 applications for both of us?


You can file your own I-485 application, but your wife must be physically in the U.S. in order to file her I-485. (17.Mar.2024)
