FOR, immigration.. You helped me a moment ago re the impact

FOR JAMES, immigration.Hi James. You helped me a moment ago re the impact of changing my O-3 status to H-1B.1) Can I apply for a green card from this visa or does it require the O-1 status holder to do that?2) If so, would changing my status from O-3 to H-1B during that process affect the green card process?Thanks

My filipina wife holds a card and was arrested in stockton

My filipina wife holds a green card and was arrested in stockton for misdemeanor dv.last year. When she was released they didnt contact us or tell us anything and gave her no paperwork. As far as we knew and according to her they dropped the charges. So we went to the philippines to sell her house there to pay her dads hospital bill. We are returning mid march But we need to know the Odds of her being arrested in the airport on the sunday night we arrive. I called the court clerk and she said she has a bench warrant and she needs to go there to get on the calendar. My question is this what are the chances as in how much out of 100% that they just let us enter without arresting her. And if they are likely to arrest her how long will they hold her there and what can I do for her at that point? I looked online to see if I could find her warrant and could not find it in the search for warrants web sites. But the clerk said she has one. When they ask her if she has ever been arrested would it be better just to say no?

My wife is a green card holder who was charged with misdemeanor dv in September. They released her and as far as we knew the charges were dropped. we went on vacation to the Philippines sept 30th and will be returning march 12th last month my Uncle received a letter from Stockton court clerk saying she was in violation of her probation. I called the clerk this morning they said she has a bench warrant in Stockton. When I searched online warrant search sites I could not find anything for her. Can we return to SFO without her getting arrested in the airport or sent back to the Philippines? we just want to go home and clear this mess up...

J. My interview appointment based on dv lottery is next

For Guillermo J.Hello,My interview appointment based on dv lottery is next week. My question isI mistakenly marked No for the question asking about public assistance. I received Medicaid for period of time during pregnancy. My understanding to question was Medicaid is not a public charge and in the mean time I am not willing to take any assistance in the future. In the interview I am going to let the officer know that I received Medicaid. Does this affect the officer decisions?
