Customer Question
I have a question...

I have a question regarding US green card filing

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the U.S. government?

If I file I 485 in the EB3 visa category, can my wife, who is currently abroad, file I 485 separately after she enters the US or do we have to file our I 485 Adjustment of Status applications together?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about the green card?

Did you see my question?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Lets have this question answered first Ok
