Hi, Before posting a question, I tried searching for a similar scenario, but could not find a match. Background: Our I-485 is pending (I-485 applied Feb 2012. EB2-I. PD Dec 2009. ). However, I have continued to maintain H-1 status. I had transferred my H-1 to another employer 1 year after filing I-485 and also filed an AC-21 letter. My spouse had started working on the EAD after my H-1 got transferred. When I renew my H-1, can we file a I-539 for her to extend her H-4 status? Specifically, I-539 asks on questions 3.a, 3.b, 3.c whether an immigrant petition has been filed, or whether a I-485 has been filed. 3.g asks whether you are working. We will have to answer Yes to these questions. Note that we have not traveled outside the US and re-entered on parole status. Question: Does this result in denial of the I-539 application for extending the H-4 status? Thanks.
