    Answered . Since the I-360 is now approved you likely will have to file a new I-485 based on your new status as a battered spouse. The fact that you were granted I-360 means that you do not need to be under his I-485 any more, as you were able to self-petition. You should have had an attorney assist you that process. The approval of the I-360 means you can apply to adjust now on your own. It is possible since he has already been granted CU6 that you may have been also granted so retain an excellent immigration attorney as soon as possible who can check. If you already have status you do not need to apply for a new status. Consult an AILA immigration attorney and choose carefully through AVVO .

    Answered . First, you need to figure out what exactly happened with all the petitions filed on your behalf. Then, an attorney will know what he/she needs to do. All I can tell you that it looks like you will be able to get your permanent residence one way or another. Good luck!

    Answered . If your I-485 was pending when you filed the I-360 then your I-485 is supposed to be held in abeyance. Since your husband is only an LPR you will have to wait for second pereference priority date to become current before your status can be adjusted. If your I-485 was denied prior to your I-360 being filed, then you will have to wait for the priority date to become current before you an reapply for adjustment of status. This can be a confusing area of law and I recommend that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can review your case and advise you how best to proceed.

    Answered . Provided he is a USC or your priority date is current, you can either do that or ask the Service to consider already filed I-485 in conjunction with the now approved I-360. If the marriage was more than 2 years ago - permanent.
