    I'm an Asian Indian on H-1B visa and applied for my I-485 during the last week of December 2001, did my finger printing in March this year and have received my EAD. Currently I'm waiting for my LPR approval. I'm planning to get married in August (next month). Could you please enlighten me by answering the following questions?

    1) Is form I-824 the first (and may be the only) to be applied? When should I submit this application? Is it before my LPR approval or after my approval?

    2) Since my spouse cannot join me in the US until the first quarter of next year, is it required for me to get an H-4 visa for her for this process?

    3) After my I-824 approval, what should I do? On what grounds can INS disapprove an I-824 application?

    4) To which US consulate will INS notify about my I-824 approval? Will they notify an US consulate in India directly or should I be doing it?

    5) After I-824 approval, what should my spouse do in India? What all documents does she need there?

    6) After I-824 approval, how easy/ convenient is it to get the final approval/ visa number for my spouse from the consular processing in India?
    How many weeks/ months (an average) would it take for my spouse to get her visa number from the consulate?

    7) Would you recommend this process? If yes, why? If no, why?

    Thank you for your time.
