H4 Travel during Visa Transfer or during the New Petition is under Initial review

Asked 8 months ago - Farmington, MI

I recently moved from Company A to Company B, and my H1B transfer is still in progress. I have the receipt number but it is not approved yet. And during this time Company B has been acquired by Company C and the final deal closure would happen by January end. I am planing to bring my spouse from India who already has a valid H4 from Company A. She is planning to come by Feb 1st week.
So would there be any issues at the Port of Entry? and what all documents she needs to carry during her travel as my new petition is still under initial review.
Please help me

    What did Company C's immigration lawyer tell you?

    He/she is a 'key' person to talk to as he/she will be providing your wife with the needed documents.
