Passport Husband Green Card under process

Hi guys,

I don't know if any one has faced such a question. currently my husband 's GC process is going on and our i485 is being filed.

I wanted to know if it is OK to do an observership or externship on h4 visa. i wanted to do voluntary work in hospital, but our lawyers advised against it saying it can affect the filing and that there can be a question of credibility.
I wanted to know if any one face such a thing. I am stuck doing nothing...I am going to have a blank CV I guess... any knowledgeable poerson pls help out especially the moderators

Where are you and where is your husband now?

Are you in US? what's your Visa status!

I am guessing that your husband is on H1B and is now converting to a Green Card Status. If that's the case, then you can do externships or any work on an H4 status.

I don't know why lawyers told you that it's not OK, but If I were you, I'd listen to them, they are the experts.
