We had to file I-130 separate from I-485. We now have the I-130 receipt of notice and all other supporting documentation. However, in that time, her b-2 expired. Do we need to file I-485 supplement a along with the I-485? Or are we exempt as this is a spousal sponsorship?
If you, the petitioner, are a U.S. Citizen, then your spouse's B-2 overstay in and of itself is not a disqualifier for adjustment of status purposes. She would not need to file supplement A. Consider, however, scheduling a consultation with a competent and experienced immigration attorney...Read more »

he was in prison for 4 years 25 years ago & he was deported then came back & he was just arrested for a misdemeanor caused by my uncle & my father was protecting his children & now he’s getting deported back
If he was previously deported and returned illegally then most likely ICE is reinstating the prior removal order and your father would not have the right to see an immigration judge.
