My US citizen father is trying to get a green card for my grandmother who is here illegally, an I130 was filed and the visa fees paid for. They told us a 601 is next but we have not filed an I485 yet. Can we file both or just the I485?
It depends when and how she entered the U.S., perhaps she is eligible for adjustment, and if so, she can file that now. If not, it will go to the National Visa Center and she will be scheduled for an interview abroad. If eligible, she may be able to file the I-601A provisional Waiver before she leaves the US.
