Default After Applying I-485,Can my family travel to India

I am planning to apply I-485 before Aug 17 and my wife and daughter have already booked tickets to visit India in Aug-end for 2 months. They both have H-4 valid for next 2.5 years.

My question is:

1. Can they travel on H-4 after applying I-485 to India ?

2. Or do they have to take advance payroll ?

Any guidance would be really appreciated.

They sure can travel as long as they have valid H4 stamp on their passports. Just mail them copy of 1-485 receipts once you get the receipts in hand. Although this is not required, but its safe to have.

Travelling with out AP is just fine you can come back with out any issue as your have valid visas, But travelling with out a 485 receipt being issued is a million dollar question .

My wife travelled to India after I send my 485 on July 3rd . I m hoping every thing will be fine . Travelling after getting the 485 Receipt is the safe way to do it but I took a chance as she need to go to India for her sisters marriage

Thanks for the quick reply. That is what I was also thinking that it shouldn't be a problem as long as they have valid H-4 visa.

Dear Pbojja, I hope your family shouldn't have any issues while coming back. Good Luck and Thanks

What if you do not have Valid VISA stamping? My VISA has expired and I am planning to visit Canada for stamping, Can I go with out receiving the 485 receipt?
