Default DS 156 immigrant petition question

Has anyone filed an immigrant visa petition on your behalf?

My wife is going to India to get her H-1 visa stamp. She was previously on F1 and OPT. She has her approval notice.

I have applied for the I-140 and I-1485. She has applied for a 'derivative adjustment of status' I-485 with my 'primary' application. i.e she has not applied for a I-140 on her own.

Should the answer for 'Has anyone filed an immigrant visa petition on your behalf?' be yes or no for her? Anyone going through or went through a similar situation?

I had gone for our H1/H4 renewal this month to Ottawa. We both put 'yes' as the answer for that question as we were in the same situation as you i.e. my I-140/485 was filed by my employer and wife was added as derivative adjustee.

Hope that helps.

Thanks. And I am assuming you didn't have any problems regarding the 'yes' answer...

No. I was asked if my employer had filed for GC for myself and wife and I said yes.

Default No problema at all

I had been to Chennai recently for my visa renewal after 3 years expiry, there was no problem at all with saying Yes to the question. Do not worry to answer about it even if your H1 sponser and GC sponser are different.
