Default Can someone apply for 485 twice?

Hi

My wife applied for 485 under EB3 with PD of 2007 during Aug'2007. I couldn't apply at that time as I was not physically in US at that time. She recently got her receipt# too.

I have recently applied for my 485, my PD is EB2 May 2003.

1. Now, my question is, is there a way I can add my wife ( assuming my PD is current ) as my dependent & apply for her 485 although she has already applied for 485 seperately earlier?

2. Does she needs to revoke her 485 before I add in?

3. what are the risks involved here? My lawyer says it should not be a problem

Please advice

Thanks

Thumbs up

[1. Now, my question is, is there a way I can add my wife ( assuming my PD is current ) as my dependent & apply for her 485 although she has already applied for 485 seperately earlier?

YES YOU CAN ADD HER AS DERIVATIVE


2. Does she needs to revoke her 485 before I add in?

NO SHE DOES NOT NEED TO REVOKE...YOU CAN SPECIFY IN YOUR CASE ABOUT HER OWN FILING
3. what are the risks involved here? My lawyer says it should not be a problem

AS PER RAJEEV KHANNA ...ITS NOT A PROBLEM...AND ITS NOT WRITTEN ANYWHERE THAT ITS A PROBLEM....INFACT YOU SHUD DO IT ASAP AS IF YOUR 485 GETS APPROVED YOU WONT BE ABLE TO ADD HER.....
