The issue is that your I-130 needs to be approved, not just that your priority date is current. Until you have an I-797 that indicates your I-130 has been APPROVED, you cannot mark 1a. No other option on the form applies based on the information you've provided.


Just answer by typing "see attached" and indeed attach a receipt of the pending I-130.
