Hi everyone! I want to thank all of you that have helped me come to the decision to file i 130 for my sons. It was suggested to me that I also file i485 so that when they arrive in US they will receive a temporary GC stamp on their passport. I know they can be filed together but I want to know can I file the I130, and then send the 485 and have that processed abroad as well? At what point do I need to send the 485 for processing not filed with i130? Have a lot of you done the 485 yourselves without an attorney? Also, at what point is the AOS requested after the 130 filing? Thanks everyone!
