Where/On which firm should an applicant respond to questions on arrest in the H1B petition filing/extension?

Asked over 1 year ago - New York, NY

The applicant had a criminal action terminated in his favor but arrest record should be reported for immigration purposes truthfully. The applicant has to disclose arrests in the DS 160 form for a visa application once petition is approved. However, during the petition filing, where/which forms should address the question of arrests? Should arrest records (for dismissed cases) accompany the petition filing by the employer or that is necessary only in the visa application process?
