How can people be so sure that a PR spouse can file I-130 and I-485 concurrently this August?

Read the USCIS webpage carefully: 

Under "Who can file concurrently?" USCIS make it clear that only 5 categories may. F2A does not fall in any category

Note the sentence regarding battered spouse. A lot of people has been fooled by the last line of these three:

Self petitioning battered spouse or child if
The abusive spouse or parent is a U.S. citizen, or
If an immigrant visa number is immediately available

The truth is that these three lines must be read together, meaning that if you are the spouse of a green card holder, and you are a victim of domestic violence, you can apply this august.

A lot of people only saw the line "if an immigrant visa number is immediately available", and think this applies to F2A. Nope, it does not.
