when I transfer H1B, do I have to submit all prior year I-797 approval notices ? I applied for OPT several years ago after undergraduate. Now I can only find my EAD card but not I-797 approval notices.

I think the lawyers ask for it but you can tell them if you don’t have yours- I don’t believe it actually goes into the uscis filing package so you might be fine. As a side note- keep everything!! US immigration is a horror until you get at least a green card or ultimately get citizenship (if you’re interested in that) and they’ll ask you for your entire life history in applications lol

The law firm will ask for it. You should be able to find a soft copy of the approval notice on your company's immigration portal.

My wife has approved H4 extension notice (i-797) and we just filed her first ever H4 EAD last week. She need to travel to India for medical reasons and she will need to have H4 visa stamped in order to immigrate to the US.
Our concern is, will it affect her i-765 application as she will receive a new i-94 and H4 Visa which will differ from already filed i-765?
In that case, does she have to wait out in India till her H4-EAD is processed in order to avoid i-94 mismatch?
Appreciate your help!
