Can I file my I-485 application before my I-130 petition is approved?
My wife is a permanent resident who filed I-130 for me on July 2016. After petition, we changed state several times and that's why the application is transferred from one state to other state (take so longer time), and currently it is queue for the interview on my local USCIS office. My priority date is available now. Can I file an I-485 while my I-130 is still pending?

1. I-130 Petition: July 2016
2. I-130 interview : February 2018
(we did not change the address on the application and after the interview, application transferred to our local USCIS office)
3. Currently queued for the interview on the local USCIS office.
I need both Work permit and Advanced Parole as early as possible. Can anybody share experiences on whether is it good time to apply I-485, work permit, travel permit?
