Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.

You are asking if you will be granted a SB1 Returning Resident Visa?

Expert:  Judith replied 1 year ago.

If it is a returning resident visa you are applying for many things are taken into consideration, in addition to what you mentioned above.

The consul looks at whether you held a return ticket to the US when you left.

Did you pay your US income taxes while out of the country?

Did you work for a US company when you left and not terminated that employment, expecting to return to it?

Did you engage in employment abroad while you were there?

Were you under court order not to depart the country while your legalmatters were pending?

Are you able to document this with your court records from the docket?

So it depends on the answer to these questions to determine whether it is likely you will be able to obtain an SB1 visa.
