    It's not ...

    ... generally required. You can file for H4 visa w/o spouse's name in the PP.

    However, sooner or later you do need to have this done, so why not sooner than later?

    Good luck.

        You do not need the spouse name added or a new passport for H4 visa purposes. She can maintain her maiden name and visa is not an issue. In fact, lot of people continue to maintain their maiden name even after marriage due to immigration issues and the hassle of the name change.

        Paystubs is not an issue. Past few paystubs are good enough.

            Yes and no ...

            ... depends on why the L1B was rejected. Usually it shouldn't but you need to make sure you have all the required documentation.

            Good luck.

                Good employers with a good HR can issue payroll checks without SSN temporarily. Even if he did wait, they have to pay him from day 1 on H1b for him to maintain proper status in the US. That is the law.

                    If he did not get paid upon entry, then he is deemed out of status as per the law. Employer has to pay from day 1. When SSN was applied is not an issue. Whether he got paid or not is THE issue.

                    People can pay back wages after the SSN was issued in case that is what you were looking for.
