I am in the final stages of a South African criminal record

HiI am in the final stages of a South African criminal record expungement for shoplifting 10 years ago and have been offered an L1B visa to work for mycompany in the States. My company oversees the DS-160 application so I could not declare the record as the job would be withdrawn they knew about it, however I now have my visa interview in a few days and am wondering if the consulate checks criminal records in South Africa and if they'll find out that I haven't declared it. I was also advised I'll need to pay a $500 fraud and detection fee on the day, do they use this to do background checks?Appreciate the response.

I am working on L-1B visa, PERM has been approved, I-140

Hi,I am working on L-1B visa, PERM has been approved, I-140 started in August 2016, I-485, I-765 and I-131 have been applied for. My position was just cut, but my company got H1-B approved in April 2015 (but never activated) that was supposed to be used only if L-1B expires. They call it "sleeping H1-B".They gave me both I-140 application/tracking and H1-B visa and suggested that other employer can "transfer" it so I can work with new company with this H1-B visa.Question: What does new company needs to do in order to hire me with this H1-B?

I got my L2 approved last year and now I got my F1 approved

I got my L2 approved last year and now I got my F1 approved in July for Globe University. I just wanted to know if I can still travel on L2. I heard there are some legal complications going on with Globe University and I was planning to travel in October on F1. Now I am not sure if that would be a safe option.That's why I was thinking if I should travel on L2 and later join college on F1 which I already have. Also, can I change my F1 university from India on same the F1?What should I do in this case. Your help will be much appreciated.

I am working with attorney for EB1(c) card as I am currently

I am working with attorney for EB1(c) green card as I am currently on L1A visa. However, I arrived to US on L1B visa and subsequently converted to L1A. Before coming to US, I was working in Mexico in capacity of Technical Project Manager, which required technical specialization and managerial supervision. For L1B to L1A conversion, my attorney had filed petition with support letter emphasizing my technical skills over my managerial skills (with 17 lines depicting my overall experience with just 4 lines highlighting my managerial experience).Now when filing through another attorney, he has concerns that the managerial experience was not emphasized enough in the conversion. Also, my offshore duties that i had specified have considerable overlap in technical and managerial responsibilities (80% managerial, and 60% technical). However, the attorney agrees that I have sufficient evidences to prove my offshore managerial experience.I have to respond back with suitable response. Can i update my offshore duties and split them further to clearly classify which is managerial and which is technical and provide detailed % against each sub duty? I would really appreciate an opinion on what options do I have to prove my managerial experience in this scenario.
