Thank you for requesting me.
The answer is no
. Unlike many countries, USA immigration
generally does not take into consideration one's civil liabilities and financial disputes when it comes to immigration. For example, in UAE and other countries, one's Passport may be taken away and one may be prevented from leaving or entering the country, jailed, etc, based on financial disputes.
Not in USA. This is purely a civil matter and does not concern immigration.
According to INA Sec. 212 et seq (see here
), individuals who have the following may be turned away from being admitted into the USA:
1) Two or more misdemeanors or multiple convictions;
3) Crime of moral turpitude;
4) Certain diseases;
But not so with civil legal matters. This should not be an issue and should not affect one's visa.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
