I have been in USA for about 8 years, last time i visited my country was 4+ years ago. Perm and I140 approved already. I sent my Employment Based (Greencard) i485 applications few days ago. Haven't yet received the receipt Notice. Can I correct the mistake now, or is it too late.
I doubt this will create a big problem. Typically one form is for the petitioner and the other (A) for the beneficiary but they are essentially the same. At worst you would get an RFE (Request for Evidence) at which point you can submit the form they want. It is always best to work directly with an immigration attorney in order to avoid these types of issues that can be nerve-wracking, time-consuming and actually cost more money than if you had paid an attorney to file everything correctly from the beginning. Best wishes.

I don't think this will be a "problem" at all and that USCIS will even bother sending you an RFE asking you to fill out the "correct" form, since both Forms are practically the same, and ask for the same questions.
