I'm an F-1 student and just got married to my husband who is an US citizen. We're filling the form I-485 for me to adjust my status, but for the Part 2. Application Type, I don't know what's the exact type of my case. Should I just check "h.Other basis of eligibility" and explain? Thank you!
That is (almost) always choice/box "a" "An immigrant petition giving me an immediately available immigrant visa number..........."

The answer above is only general in nature cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
No, I think you want to check box "A". Please see
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
You would check box "A" as an immediate relative.
This answer is for informational purposes only. It does not establish an attorney client relationship.
As others have pointed out, select "A" for immediate relative. Personally, I would recommend having a lawyer help you with your case. There are a lot of things that can trip up the best and most legitimate of applications or petitions.
