Are you filing for I140 or I485? If you are just filing for I140 you may be many years away from filing I485 depending on your country of birth. You have have to get your wife on H4 after her H1 expires. I believe you can apply for H4 and H4 EAD at the same time.

Im on an H1B at Deloitte. I want to move to the Dubai and have been getting some traction with two different consulting firms. I’ve used less than one year of my first H1B. If at some point in the future I want to move back to the US will that count as a new petition or the sponsoring company with which I’ll get a job can file a transfer petition and get me started?
