Hi,

Both me and my wife are on EAD and have valid AP (valid till December 2010), H1 expires in Jan 2011(not stamped on our passport) . Priority date is June 2005, have a job and have current paustubs/w2.

My wife is in India currently - we both are planning on coming back in April sometime with our new born baby. My question is about getting H4 stamped for our baby.
1.Do we need to get our H1 stamped on our passport to get H4 for our kid ?
2.What happens if our I485 gets approved before we get H4 stamp for our kid ?
3.What is the procedure these days to get H4 stamped on passport ?

1. Yes, H4 is derivative status. Primary should be in H1 status.
2. As long as kid was born BEFORE I-485 was approved, kid can get GC as follow-to-join.
3. Contact the US consulate in your area and your employer to get list of documents needed.
