The Advantage of The Concurrent I-140/I-485 Filing


Dr. William:

Please tell me what is the advantage of the concurrent I-140/I-485 filing? I already filed I-140, what can I do for the I-485 filling?


The benefit of concurrent filing is immediate eligibility for EAD and Advance Parole. The biggest benefit is those whose unlawful presence has start running and may be subject to 3-year or 10-year bar unless the running of unlawful presence time is stopped by filing I-485. 

By filing I-485, they will be able to stop running of unlawful presence even though they cannot remove the period of unlawful presence before filing I-485. If you have already filed I-140, you may file immediately I-485 attaching I-140 Receipt Notice.
