I'm going to have an interview with the american embassy in

Hey, i'm going to have an interview with the american embassy in Sweden for an immigration financé visa. Before that I will go through a medical examination. What I'm worried about is that i have a history of cannabis abuse, which is documented in my medical history record. I no longer take cannabis and stopped with the use just before i started my education in nursing, 2 years ago. Is there a chance for me to not get denied the visa? I had a hard life growing upp, living in foster care etc...all of that is also written in my medical history record. My life changed after i started my education....how do you see my chances to get my immigration finance visa? thank youJA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS? It's hard to know for sure. The Immigration Lawyer will figure it out. Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Im a nursing student and will graduate in one year. i have not talked to lawyerJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: thats all thanks

I have a small business and in August last year I had a L1

For Law Girl: Hi, I have a small business and in August last year I had a L1 petition approved. However when I went to the embassy the CO didnt think i was eligable for the L1 visa (business being too small he thought) so he sent the case back to USCIS for review. Fast forward to today, i have not yet heard from USCIS and I havent been able to establish my office in the US as planned. Petition will expire in August and by then i was suppose to be up and running in the US but I had to close down the operation in the US since I didnt get the Visa. I now want to take some courses at UCLA but not sure how this will work with a F1 visa while the L1 is still pending? Should I withdraw my L1 petition? Would the L1 refusal be an issue for the F1 application?

I hope you are doing well. I am writing on the case that I

Hi, I hope you are doing well. I am writing to follow up on the case that I discussed with you earlier. I applied for the Green Card for my mother. All steps were done and today she had an interview. At interview she was inquired about her previous passports and they also asked for my passport (sponsors passport, I might not sure if they were asking for original, because she did have photocopy). After interview they gave her a document that says no visa under section 221. But they kept her passport and ask her to send her previous passports. I am not sure what does it means? They are still processing her case?
