Jersey City, NJ |

My husband adjusted his status by F4 catogary (i 130) and filed i 824 to request an approval notice be sent to a U.S. Consulate for derivative visas for family members. Today we received approval notice saying the above application has been approved we have notified the consulate listed above that applicants status has been adjusted to that of a LPR.
only my husbands name is written in the beneficiary and petitioner box .They did not mention the derivatives
