Help on H4 to F1 & adding name in I-485.


New Member
I have a few questions regarding the conversion from H4 to F1 status:

1. Can my wife convert from H4 to F1 status, while my PERM is pending?
2. While being in F1 status, can I add her name when applying for I-140 & I-485 (as my priority date is current)? Will there be any issue?
3. At what stage of the Green Card; I could add her name in the process?
4. Does dependent legally means that she should be in H4 status? She can be in any non immigrant legal status?

Really appreciate for your time & prompt respond.

Best Wishes.
