    Default Should You File Forms I-485 and I130 Concurrently or Not

    My wife and I got married last year June 2018. Her i94 ended on July 2018. I'm going to file for her this month April 2019. She has overstayed for more than 180 days.

    My plan was to initially file i130 only then if it's approved followed by i485. But I've read somewhere that since she overstayed I need to file i130 and i485 concurrently. If I didn't it would look suspicious.

    is this correct? Would it really be better if they were filed together?

    The issue of the overstay won't go away or become less of an issue based upon whether you file the forms at the same time.
