Is there a time limit to file for the I-485?
Q: I got my fiancee here on a I-129f and we married within the 90 day’s. I am trying to file for the I-485 but can’t because I never received my I-797 and 797c to file for the I-485. I filed a I-824 and waiting to get my copies of the I-797 and I- 797c. It’s already been 8 months ago since we married, is there a time limit to file for the I-485?
A: You do not need 797 to file I-485. However, since you are so late in filing your I-485, I suggest you file I-485 with I-130. Attach copies of the visa page and I-94 card with your I-485 and file it ASAP.
