Friends,
I do have a couple of questions. Could some one please help me out.

Here is my situation.
My Labor just got approved. I am from India and my pd is sept 17, 2001.
My questions are:
1. Can I file 140 and 485 concurrently?
2. If not can I just file 140 and prepare all the things necessary for 485 including medical in advance so when it becomes current i can file 485? This is assuming that there will be a progress in visa numbers in the next couple of months.

Your valuable comments or suggestions are very much appreciated.

Thanks

1) Yes, you should be able to file concerrently if you have all documents ready.
2) If I-485 documents are not ready, do not delay I-140. You can just apply I-140 and apply I-485 later as your documents are available to apply.
