Thanks for your advice. I also understand my kid can go to school with B-2 visa because the school does not check visa status and they are not supposed to ask visa status. However, I am proceeding L-1 visa now and attorney said that it can be monitored during process, which gives penalty that he can not go to public school for 5 years. I want to avoid this.

If there is no legal issue, I should have put my kid in school.

Can you advice?
