If you are the spouse or child of a U.S. citizen’s immediate relative, you must independently qualify for a Green Card and file your own application. You cannot qualify for a Green Card as the derivative beneficiary based on the immediate relative’s application. As an immediate relative, you may file your Form I-485 together (“concurrently”) with the Form I-130, Petition for foreign Relatives filed on your behalf, while the Form I-130 is pending, or after the Form I-130 is approved (and remains valid).
