    If you are paroled into the U.S. then, if you have dependents in the U.S. in H-4 status, they are out of status. I assume that they are automatically reinstated into H-4 status if you are reinstated to H-1B status, but the law is not clear, and the most prudent course would be for them to apply for an extension of stay with you.
