What can we do, that she can come to visit me for 2 weeks. PS. She has 2 Javanese kids 24 and 16. And a... Read more »
The embassy probably thinks she’s at high risk of not returning due to her personal and financial situation. Would marriage to you , a US citizen, solve this problem?Probably yes if you can convince the consulate that she married for love.

Yes she can sue her parents. She should discuss her case with counsel here in Florida about possible representation. The owners homeowner insurance policy benefits could be a possible source of recovery if the harm done to her could be deemed negligent as opposed to intentional.

No. Only US citizens can sponsor their fiancé for a k visa. Marry her overseas and have her process at the US consulate for her green card. Consider working with an attorney to represent you throughout the lifetime of the case. It’s a year long process with a lot of twists and turns. Good luck.
Hi, I am currently studying in the USA and hold F-1 Visa status. My wife is a US citizen. We wanted to apply for the immigration status this month. Do these new restrictions preclude our chances of applying to it?

Consider working with counsel. Some of us charge a very affordable flat fee for representation that would last...Read more »

Of course if the employee denied you service on the basis that your identification did not match your picture on the concealed weapons permit then they may have a non discriminatory reason for denying you service.

They provide no non slip mats for wet floors that they know always get wet, from ice to drinks to spills. They also don’t have good enough drainage as it’s under a fixture blocked by ice bin. It’s a kitchen. Also my back already has been hurt before so because of them not taking proper care... Read more »
