Default I-485 Cross Chargeability/FTJ

Hi,
I have recently received an RFE on my I-485 application asking me to provide receipt number or A number for my spouse and child as I have included them in my application. I don't know how to respond to this and need your help to provide a suitable response.

I didnít submit I-485 application for my spouse and child as they were out of the country while i filed my mine. My family continues to live outside US while I'm here working on H1 and also have my approved labor (Feb24 2007) EAD (Nov11 2007) and I-140(Feb10 2009)
Question is how to respond to RFE as I can't provide A number or receipt number. Also as my spouse and child are born in a country where they still have visa numbers available, can I claim cross chargeability to my spouse country of birth as the visa numbers are not yet available for India for my Priority date.

As I have my chances of speedy processing with cross chargeability, how should I respond to RFE without I-485 filed for my family? Is it possible to ask for consular processing for my family with an intend FTJ? Please help me to answer in a way that would help my processing faster.

Regards

Tharu:

You can reply to the RFE exactly as you stated. That your wife and child are abroad and will be applying for visas at the U.S. post to accompany you, therefore they do not have A numbers or receipt numbers.

You must file I-824s for them if you have not already done so.

Mr Sauer:

Thank you so much for your response. Need a litle clarification on I-824. Can I file I-824 before my I-485 gets approved? If so, how can i request alternate chargeability to my spouse's country with out her I-485?
If not what is the best way to claim alterate chargeability to my Spouse country of birth. Gues I have to bring bring my family on H4 and submit I-485 in US or switch to consular processsing. Is there any other possible way other than these 2 procedures?

Regards

Default Hi Tharu,

Hi Tharu,
I am in the same boat as you. i.e. My wife's place of birth is a country where the visa numbers are still available . I am trying cross chargeability. She is still not in USA yet. we both can exchange info. if you would like.Thanks.
