I am having problems understanding how to fill out the I-485

Customer Question

I am having problems understanding how to fill out the I-485 form. My wife came over on a K1 Visa. There's so many different things we've been told to do that we don't know what to do first.
JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?
Customer: No. We just need to do all the other stuff like file out marriage cert, apply name change, get her a driver's license, and file the 485. Not sure what to do firt.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: No. Just started to fill out the I- 485 and got lost in it
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No not really.
