Question about applying for Green Card Processing for my mother. I am a US Citizen. She arrived from India 2 weeks back on September 12th on Visitor visa and did not enter with intention to apply for Green Card but I have convinced her to start process. 1. I would like to know if I can start the Green card processing for her and intent of entering would not be a concern Or should I wait? if so, how long should I wait? 2. Should I start concurrent processing for I 130 and I 485 ? If so, it appears to me that I cannot start I-130 online application as there is no online application for I-485. Do I have to send both applications together for it to be concurrent? 3. What are the processing times for I-130 and I-485? If it is taking longer than 6 months, can she stay in US beyond 6 months without any other action. 4. She did not get I-94 when she travelled from India to San Francisco, is there going to be a problem with I-94 details not available while filling for I-485? Thank you for your advice in advance.
