I am sorry, but I am having difficulty understanding your compound question.

Kindly simplify your question and resubmit.

Are your parents filing I-485 or just I-130?

Or I-130 and I-485 at the same time?

Thank you for your cooperation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
