This item is to provide instructions for the Derivative applicant filing for I-485, 765, 131 applications
based on principle applicant’s employment-based I-140. You may use this kit if the principle applicant will submit I-485 with you together or principle applicant’s i-485 has been submitted and still pending.

a. If principle applicant is going to submit with you together, please order “I-485 principle applicant” + “I-485 derivative applicant”. Please use the cover letter and filing case to USCIS instructions in the derivative applicant kit. This add-on kit will be $199 when you already purchased the main kit.


b. If principle applicant’s case has been submitted and currently pending, please solely order “I-485 derivative applicant” to prepare your application. No need to buy the “principle applicant” kit. The price of this item only is $399.

assist you with preparing all the supporting documents.

Instead of having tons of documents in the DIY kit for you to read and follow, we strive to make everything as easy to understand as possible. Instructions were integrated to a filled sample form, so you don’t need to open piles of pdf documents on your computer at the same time and completely get lost in them.
