Hi ,
I have read the following


which says you can't bring your spouse to the U.S. AFTER the petition is filed and add them to it. Which is contrary to what was discussed on the posts earlier. Please comment.

In that URL you can use Scenario number 3 to file your spouse's I-485.

Also another word of advice, don't use your email id as login id if you don't like spam

I'm not sure what "follows to join" in SCENARIO 3 means?

SCENARIO 3 - You have your adjustment pending, travel home on advance parole, marry, return alone, complete your adjustment alone and your spouse "follows to join", meaning they come in under your petition...it can take months, but at least its faster than having to file an F2A spouse petition.

Isnt AP and EAD optional? I'm planning to stay on H1 while my 485 is pending. So in future if i get married i can bring spouse on H4 and apply 485...is that possible???
