I have family in the USA.
I am Employed but took a leave of absence for a maximum of 4 months with guaranteed reinstatement upon my return.
I also supplement my income by selling on ebay.
I have been employed as an Emergency Medical Technician for 20 years but I have switched from company to company due to a bigger salary, so yes I have strong connections to medical emergency management and my country and have no desire to leave my profession
The letter stated that they were not satisfied that I have a significant incentive to return to the US and because I mentioned that I will not seek to take employment or take recourse to public funds in order to support and maintain myself whilst in the United Kingdom.
They mentioned this because of my social and economic circumstances? I have adult daughter who lives on her own and a son who I was denied being the father but still give out of my own pocket without any court order, because I know he's mine. Both from previous relationships. He (the immigration officer) doubted any company would grant me leave for that long. My employer granted me permission just as long as the leave was without pay.
And yes, this was my first visit to Great Britain/UK
