    Hello everyone,

    I am confused with filling out Ds-160 form.

    I got married while I was on OPT and my spouse was/is on H1b. While applying for H1b I did not mention my spouse because she really does not need H4 and is not dependent. Now I'm going for H1b stamping and filling out DS-160, it asks for travel companion, marital status and Spouse info. Where do I need to mention my spouse? again, she is on H1b already and she is going to travel back and forth with me.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    One thing that I understand is you should give correct information. Hence spouse / marital status and spouse info should be mentioned. This does not mean you are applying h4 for your spouse.

    That's what I would do.

    Ok, but wouldn't Ds-160 info contradict h1b petition info?

    I don't think there is spouse information in H1B petition. H4 is a separate petition even if filed with H1.
