    Answered . The priority should be tracked based on the I-130 petition your husband had filed or the date your I-360 was filed whichever is earlier. IN the second scenario, take the I-360 date and look in the F2A category priority. When it becomes current, you can file I-485. Until then, you can apply for EAD already. Takes 60 days to get it.

    Answered . You cannot file for adjustment of status until your priority dates I current. If your husband had filed an I-130 previously, you could benefit from that priority date, but if not, your priority date is in July 2012. Once adjustment of status is filed, it takes up to 90 days for the work permit to be issued.
