RAJA18, This is Strange. I140 is in your name and dependents intent to immigrate is not proven at this stage, so you should be fine to file COS for her.
My wife had no issues doing COS to F1. Hope this helps.

I would appreciate your reply.
If you are stuck without being able to file I-485 due to “priority date being not current", email your
a) IV username
b) contact (ph#, email),
c) priority date and
d)location to firstname.lastname@example.org
Until Congress enacts legislation to eliminate backlogs, people who cannot file I485 will always be in limbo and at the mercy of endless H1B visa extensions and visa stamps. Join us and be a part of future IV initiatives to push USCIS to allow I485 filing without current PD.
