Sorry - somehow I misplaced answers.
1) In the form I-485 i am asked for social security number, i do not have this as yet, is it ok? I did not mean to ask you the Direction of how to fill the form. What I meant to ask was, If its okay to apply for Adjustment of Status w/o having SOS #?
Yes - it is OK. As you do not have SSN - you need to write NONE2)I-485 Part 3 asks for non-immigrant visa number, where do i find this on the visa? You said I would find it on Approval Notice on Immigration Petition (I-130), I do not have any kind of Number on I-797 (approval notice) of (I-130) I entered U.S with an Approved I-129F? I have a 2 year US Visa Stamped on my Passport. Please look into this.
That was my mistake. The non-immigrant visa number locates on the visa stamp in your passport. There are two numbers - the black number is XXXXX a "control number" and is not relevant for you. Look for the red number. Here is a sample. - http://www.immihelp.com/visas/sample-usa-non-immigrant-visa.html 3)In part 3, processing information they ask if i have ever filed for permanent residence. What is the status? My husband had filed the I-130 which is already approved but pending. Is this related to the question in the form? You said my answer should likely be "NO" My Husband had filed Both I-129F & I-130. Both were approved but I came to US on K3 visa while I-130 is still pending? Is my answer is "No"
You are applying for adjustment of status based on current I-130 petition. The question is related to situations if you PREVIOUSLY applied for permanent resident status.
