My girlfriend is hiding with my son since she has been arrested

My girlfriend is hiding with my son since she has been arrested and immediately released by the police as her I-94 has expired. I do not have anymore news, except the place she stays currently but I do not have any contact with her. She might be upset because I have reported her illegal status in the US. What should I really do now to get in touch with my son as she does not answer to my calls. I am abroad. The family with which she stays does not also reply to my calls. They are being an obstacle between us. Thanks for your help.

I have two approved H1b applications. The other agency said

I have two approved H1b applications. The other agency said that my petition was approved last week. The other one, which I have the copy of my receipt upon checking on the USCIS website, says a request for initial evidence was approved. I am planning to get the former one since its the most convenient way for me. Is it the right thing to do? How will I turn down the offer for the latter? Thank you so much.

Is continuation of another question you answered on August

For JudithThis is continuation of another question you answered on August 15th, 2016 for me.I am on L2 visa and my spouse is in L1B visa (Visa valid till Oct 2018). My spouse's company applied for a H1B visa too and his petition got approved as L1 to H1 COS with a new I94. But now I got a job (on L2 EAD) and we want to maintain L1B visa.As advised by you earlier, my husband traveled out of US and planning to re-enter on L1B visa on Oct 2nd, to avoid automatic H1B COS.When he left US yesterday, at port of exit they did not collect his H1-I94. When he told them, he has 2 I-94's and would like to return, they said Canada-Customs will take it. But they did not take it either.Now his company advised, he can still enter on Oct 2nd and there should not be any issue.However as me and my child are L2 extension approved by mail(valid till Oct 2018) and do not have physical stamping in Passport, are in a situation that we cannot leave US, as we cant enter US back.The questions I have are,1. My Husband is planning to enter US on Oct 2nd using L1B visa. Will there be automatic activation of H1B on Oct 1st? Will he any problem with it?2. Will me and child go out of status on Oct 1st?3. Does he has to voluntarily speak about H1-I94 at Entry to US? Or present H1-I94 only when asked?4. As it is Sep 30th and he is at Toronto, he can still cross border to US and re-enter Canada today and see if he is asked to return H1-I94. This one is risky, but just want to mention that as we dont the significance of holding H1 I94 in hand. What do you think?Request your earliest response.
