I will be applying for my green card and my spouse is still studying on F1 . Should I add my spouse also in my GC application ? Will it be difficult for my spouse to file for H1B after the course complete if our GC process starts?
If you are legally married to a foreign national at the time of filing your I-485, it is generally best to have your spouse file an I-485 as a derivative at the same time. They should still maintain non-immigrant status if at all possible. If she properly maintains her F-1, the I-485 filing should not impact her H-1B eligibility later on, as H-1B is a dual-intent form of status.
