Reckless driving on F1 visa STEM OPT

I am an international student in the USA (on F1 visa- STEM OPT). I need some advice related to immigration and visa.

Case: In August 2022, I was over speeding and I got arrested by a cop for reckless driving. After that, I hired an attorney for my case and he successfully got it dismissed and expunged/sealed. I have all the documents related to the dismissal and expungement of this case.

I am planning to travel to India, I wanted to know if it is safe to travel now. Do I need any documents from the immigration side, if yes could you please guide me?

Thank you.

DUI case - F1 student
I am currently pursuing my Masters at Arizona State university. I landed in US on August 13th 2021.
Yesterday (December 9th) night was one of the worst nights as I got stopped by and officer right in-front of my house at 4:30 am and the alcohol reading was 0.10. My car was impounded but I was not arrested. The officer took me to a van where they collected my blood and he asked me to take a uber back. I was back to my place within an hour. He asked me to appear at the court on 20th December. The officer told me that he has booked it as a misdemeanour.
Im planning to hire a attorney.
I received an internship offer recently, will it get affected due to this? Also, I read online that the visa gets canceled immediately and i have to reapply if I got to India. Please let me know what I can do to get out of the situation eith least damage to visa status and from job perspective. Please help!! ????????????

Family Green Card received they were outside US and How to bring the family to US, after one year window has elapsed.

My situation is special here :-) appreciate your comments.

Myself and family have GC till 2030. And Im currently in US, My family traveled outside US in 2019 mid and couldn't enter back as they didn't had advance parole. Fortunately all of us got GC in 2020. Now with all of us having GC in hand , thought of brining family back to US. but COVID hit us and my wife was diagnosed with +ve and the trip was postponed. While all these happened, it is already 1year 3months passed since GC received in hand. What should be i be doing?

My family received GC when they were outside of US, as they had to travel without advance payrole approval and got stuck there

H1b Stamping with Reckless Driving
I am convicted for Reckless driving by speed (94/55) in Virginia. It states that in Virginia going anything above 20 mph is reckless driving and a Class 1 Misdemeanor offense. I was not arrested(put in jail)/Fingerprinted, Only my License was suspended for 3 months and payed fine of $600(which includes court fees).

I got my H1b picked up in the lottery and will soon file the petition to USICS. After October 2021 I plan to go to my home country(India) and should probably apply for H1b Stamping.

My questions are:

1. What should be the answer in DS 160 for the field : Have you ever been arrested off any crime/offense. Reckless driving is an offense in Virginia but not in every state and Don't know for sure if I have to mention it in DS 160. Please help me if anyone faced this issue.

2. As per my knowledge person will DUI will be denied stamping on the mental/physical grounds. Will it be treated same for Reckless driving as well?

3. Any suggestions/steps should be taken in advance to prevent stamping denials.

4. Will there be any problem at POE.

Please help me if anyone have knowledge on this type of scenario or experienced the similar thing before , it would be helpful for me.

Thanks in Advance

I 751 and traveling
Hi everyone, I have question and would be very happy if anyone can share experiences, knowledge, information. My green card is expiring on September 19, 2021. I will be filing my I751 on June 20th. Can I travel internationally after I submit my I751 with a valid green card or do I have to wait for a receipt to travel? Will I have any problem upon my return with a valid green card but no receipt? And what happens if my receipt arrives before I come back to the US?
Thank you!

Applied for EAD/AP but only received EAD, still waiting for I-131 travel document
I applied for EAD/AP at the same time back in April, Biometrics were done in Aug and I received the EAD card in October (unfortunately with the "invalid for reentry" stamp). I don't know why the AP was not approved at the same time. I finally received a notice that the AP was approved in November, but they have still not sent out the actual document. Just wondering if anyone else had this frustrating experience.

form barcode does not reflect the correct information
I recently prepared I131 for my parents. I found I put the wrong gender in the form and fixed it without updating the barcode. What I did was that I directly printed the page with corrected information without saving it first. As a result, the barcode was not updated. Then I repackged the form and send it to uscis. It has been two weeks and I am waiting for receipt. I just realized that the barcode was not updated this morning. The information I filled in the form was correct but the barcode was not updated based on it. If people scan the barcode only, it will reflect the wrong information. Is this a serious issue? How can I fix it?
