H4 Stamping with Transfer in Progress or Approved

My wife is back in India and we have scheduled her H4 Stamping interview in the month of July.

I have got an opportunity with new employer and they have started H1B transfer process. Even though H1B is transferred I would be in notice period with my current employer.

Can i fill DS 160 for H4 with I797 of current employer which is valid till 2024? will there be issue as I would have two approved I797 with different employers?

You should update the DS-160 with the new I-797 if your spouse applied for visa after you start the new job.
