    Answered . Assuming your priority date is current, I recommend that you file the adjustment application with the employment authorization document application as well as extend your nonimmigrant status.

    Answered . You should extend our current status. It appears that you may have filed the I-140 alone because you were not eligible to file the I-485 which would be the case if your priority date is not current. You have incomplete information to decide whether you are currently eligible to file I-485
