I am an international resident, working in USA on H1B visa

Hi, I am an international resident, working in USA on H1B visa and currently in the process of transferring from Company A to Company B. While H1B transfer has completed, I have few questions to discuss:Question 1: Here is i797 (I797_from_Sep2016.pdf ) from company B, in which I am planning to switch to. Can you review it and let me know if it looks good?Question 2: The attorney at company B mentioned that as I have extension already (refer Capitalone H1B Extension (Priya Extension).pdf) from Company A, they are going to file my i797 as , I guess as "addendum or modification", which resultantly means that there will be no i797 for my spouse and she can use the previously provided one.Is that fine? I am trying to take 2nd opinion to make sure that my bases are covered.Question 3: Company A had started my PERM and filed it , (refer the key milestones in Current Perm Status.png) so I have got the priority date now. That said, Company B will not be starting my PERM for next 6 months but can they use this priority date?
