  1. potentially you may need to retain an attorney, do a record search, find out what happened. You will have to reapply for your visa and your job can be crucial with an explanation as to why you need to travel. But even that will not guarantee that they will re-issue it to you

    This is not legal advice and a client attorney relationship is not created. For a free consultation call (718)234-5588.


  2. What type of visa did you have? As you mentioned, it appears that US immigration officials have cancelled your visa. The form I-275 is a notice related to the cancellation of your visa.

    We would need to know more information about the reasons surrounding the cancellation of your visa. Perhaps the documents that US immigration officials gave to you at the incident in August 2012 might give some explanation as to why they cancelled your visa.

    At this point, you might or might not be eligible to apply for a new visa. Again, more information is needed.

    I suggest that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney about your case.

    (734) 369-3131. This communication does not establish and attorney-client relationship with the Law Office of Michael Carlin PLLC or any individual member of the office. Confidential information should not be sent through this form.


  3. In order to determine why and how your visa got cancelled and what happened to your father's visa, it is necessary to get a copy of the papers you signed. I suggest filing under the freedom of information act, with customs and border protection.

    The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
