What is the guidance for I-485 filing for existing EB-5 investors with pending i-526?

We have a pending i-526 application. Our lawyer wants to wait for guidance from USCIS. We are from India and want to file sooner rather than later ( I don”t want to take a chance with retrogression). Just want to get thoughts on the approach other attorneys are taking for clients in similar situation?

While more guidance would be good, there is no reason to wait. USCIS has already published the address where these must be submitted.

You should be able to file I-485 as an India-born EB-5 applicant. In my opinion the new EB-5 legislation is very clear on this point and there is no need to wait for additional guidance.

You should proceed with your adjustment of status filing based on your pending I-526 petition. USCIS is issuing receipt notices for I-485s filed based on a pending I-526 RC petition - there is no reason to wait at this point in time.

We have filed since March without issues.
