I am on L1A visa. I'm here with my wife and two kids. I'm the only child in my family.My father passed away last June. My mom is depressed after my father passed away. I'm trying to bring my mother who is in my home country to visit us here for 1 month , but her visa got rejected by the US Embassy in my home country .The visa officer has asked her 2 questions. Do you only have one child? Where is your husband? We send her all the necessary paperwork and are sponsoring the trip. My question is : is there any way we can get visa for her and come visit us? I cannot change the fact that I'm the only child and my father is not there any more. Please help.

Unless mother can qualify on her own right, without necessitating any "sponsorship", affidavit of support and the like, here chances are slim, at best.

You fail to see the issue - a single woman with what appears to have no ties to a home country does not qualify for B-2 visa which requires a strong non immigrant intent. I suggest not to keep applying and getting denials as with each denial the case gets that much weaker. Talk to an attorney who can assist present a strong visa application. Good luck!
