  1. If your spouse is in the U.S. and is eligible to adjust status, then just file the Adjustment package with the I-130 receipt. It will be processed as an immediate relative case.

    If your spouse is outside the U.S., then you should have received a responseon the I-130 within about 6 months of notifying the CIS that you acquired citizenship status. You will need to notify them again.

    Please contact me if you wish to engage experienced counsel on this matter.


  2. As previously stated, file for adjustment of status if your spouse in here.

    You are welcome to contact me on the link provided below to discuss your case if you wish.
