Answer
Hi,

Yes, your H-1B approval notice should be submitted along with recent pay stubs to show that you are currently maintaining H-1B status.

In addition to the documents noted in your email, also attach recent pay stubs received by your husband along with his H-1B approval notice. It may also be helpful to attach his W-2(s). There is no need to attach his Form I-129.

Don't forget the USCIS filing fee of $300.
