  • I-130 prioity date and the 485 pack

    I filed I-130 for my EWI husband back in September 2000, received receipt in October 2000, I-130 approved and NOA received in July 2001. INS then misplaced the file. We then hired a lawyer and she advised we file 485 pack, that he could be grandfathered into the LIFE act, keeping the priority date on the I-130. Is she correct or not? We never received a receipt number when we filed the I-485. Mail here is being misdelivered and not redirected to the proper mail boxes and I need to keep a close eye on things.

        The first lawyer we hired said to file I-130 first, then later file 485, so that is what we did. We filed the I-130, it was approved then "lost". The I-130 was filed in 2000, approved in 2001. We filed the I -485 in 2002, with a copy of the I-130 we filed, along with a copy of the approval letter and copies of where we tried to hunt down the file they lost.
