Hello JACUSTOMER,

Suing a person for defamation of character would not affect your immigration application. A civil lawsuit is a separate civil proceeding and does not affect a person's immigration status.

Ok, so how do I go about it sir
Lawyer: Thomas Swartz, Attorney replied 11 months ago

A civil lawsuit commences by serving the defendant with a summons and complaint stating the factual basis of your claim and requesting the relief your request (money damages) and filing the summons and complaint in court. Since this person is in the UK, it would be difficult to sue her in the U.S. You might have to sue her in the U.K. I would attempt to contact the other victims who you say have already sued her, and see where the lady was sued, and in what court.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
