  1. Let the I-485 which is still pending for your wife complete processing and hopefully be approved, unless you would like to pay I-130 and a new I-485 fees..

  2. I would suggest you to file inquiry regarding current I 485 and then make a decision to file new I 485 based on I 130.


  3. No, It will not be on the sole grounds that you are a USC now.
