WARNING: DO NOT ENROLL YOUR CHILD IN PUBLIC SCHOOL WITHOUT READING THIS FIRST!
Enrolling your child in school while in a B-2 TOURIST status can jeopardize your family's current and future visa possibilities!
While the law states that public schools in the USA cannot turn away a child that is a law that is not in accord with the Immigration and Nationality Act.
Therefore, if you want to remain in lawful status, your child may not attend school while on a tourist visa. If your child does attend school while on a B-1/B-2 without first obtaining permission from USCIS or obtaining a visa from the consulate, and it is later discovered, you will jeopardize your chances of obtaining a non-immigrant visa.
If you're in the United States on a tourist visa and would like to study or have your child study in the USA, consult with us before making any changes. Have your child wait while you discuss the best course of action in your particular situation.
DO NOT take action because a friend, neighbor, coworker, Notario or paralegal services company tells you it is okay.
