My first marriage didn't work out and my I-130 and I-485 were denied. I was placed in deportation in June of 2007. I"m trying to adjust my status based on my second marriage to US citizen. We successfully passed our stokes and my I-130 was approved 3 months ago. We went back to the court yesterday (Nov 18th) and judge told us to file I-485 to Texas Service Center and come back in August of 2009. I don't understand how Texas Service Center can approve my I-485 if i'm in removal proceedings. After we filed I-485 package at Texas Service Center with fee should we file the original I-485 to the immigration court AFTER receiving a receipt notice from TSC? My lawyer didn't say anything about it. Only that "judge said" to file it in Texas and that's it????? i doubt it. I don't want it to be delayed like it happened with my I-130 because my lawyer sent it to Vermont Service Center and we had to file it at our local district office 6 months later anyway.
