    I apologize 1aurcitizen for my language . I should have kept my cool. But the tone of your responses was snarky and I felt it was not right either but it didn't warrant the language I used. Again, I apologize for it. Anyway. Cheers! I have benefitted from these forums and have pointed many to...

    I'd suggest you don't show your bitterness or contempt or any prejudice in answering queries. My past posting might have had a context at that point of time that you might not know. You are not in CSI or Law and Order series to try and put two and two together and form some kind of intent...

    I agree Susie. Its all relative to where we are at in life. My "problem" is trivial to yours and so on. My wife's parents are heart patients and they are unable to travel. I'm not complaining about US immigration as the country was/is built on the premise of immigration which I have stood to...

    The CO kept repeating the overstay and then breaking rules by entering after VISA was cancelled on their next trip. That is where I think she based her decision from my perspective. My mom said she told in the end that because she broke the rules and stayed is why she is being denied. Now if...

    My parents don't come here to take care of grandchildren. Don't assume things based on what you see elsewhere. My wife is stay at home and my parents come here only to spend time with grandkids. It is not the babysitting service they come here for. Please don't generalize or assume. I've been...

    Just because I'm asking for advice doesn't me Just because I'm asking for advice, doesn't mean you can make assumptions and talk. Ask questions. The tone of the answer is what bothered me. I know what the CO's view is. Your answer assuming that my mother was trying to immigrate is what I think...

    Wtf u talking about? Reading comprehension is not your strong suit I guess. I was saying the fact that they didn't look to immigrate any of the 8 previous trips should give some inkling on if they would settle abd abandon their home base! It didn't mean that they tried or that I tried for them...

    Or the fact that they didn't want to settle here in the previous 8 trips should be a reason to prove that they have ties to get them back each time! It all depends which way you want to justify I guess. And no one says that a visa is a right. So the privilege thing is kinda moot to be said here

    Thanks for the reply. I don't understand how it is a misuse if you stay within the limits of the visa duration. Almost everyone I know have parents coming and going. The one thing that might be a reason that I'm the only child. But how my dad got the visa just a week prior to her (although with...

    So my parents applied for their second 10 year visa online. While applying through dropbox, my father's was called for interview with a request for CV. He is 73 years old. The fact that he worked in Saudi and OMan might have triggered that. Anyway he got his 10 year visa. My mom went for her...
