H4 Application before marriage and interview date after marriage

Hello I am applying for H4 dependent visa. I am filling the DS160 form for dependent visa now and I am not married currently but the person I am getting married to has H1 visa. I will be married before the interview appointment date that I am planning to take. I will also have Marriage certificate/Photo album/Marriage invitation card when I go for the interview

What should I mentieond my status in DS160 form Single or Married?

Also Since I will be married by the time i go for interview so can I mentioned my Spouse name where it ask for dependent information?


Dear Lakshmi,

I have done many cases like yours.

You should mention status as Married. and also mention spouse’s name

But when I called the visa customer service mentioned on the website http://www.ustraveldocs.com. They told me I have to mentioned the current information while filing DS160.

So was confused.
Also what should be the intended length of stay in USA on dependent visa. Should be a small duration like 3 months or 6 months or should it be the expiry date of my husband’s H1B visa.

The home address should be the address mentioned in my passport or should it be my husbands address or it does not matter what address I put?

Thank you in advance for answering my questions.
