  1. My dads Visa was rejected 4 times in 2016, reason 214b. We were desperate to have him here as my 7 yr old daughter was undergoing chemo in stanford. Even letters from docs did not help. He is retired state gov employee but is a financial consult for state SPACE application center. He has one house ( on my moms name), one house in his name and agricultural lands in India. He also has substantial amount of Fixed deposits on his name. my mom got her Visa 10 yrs ago , my dad dint go with her for Visa then. Hi parents are alive and he has a job to go back home to. I am their only child. BTW !) Should I sponsor his Visa like last 4times of should he sponsor himself?2) Will working for SPACE application center be a problem? should he resign ?3) I work as an independent consultant with multiple customers so I have pay checks but wont be able to get a letter from the employer? How should I project that?4) how can i show stronger ties to India , if they are not looking at property details or at the bank records or the fact that his parents are alive and are very old? 5) when he applied in 2016 we had L1 Visa , now we have a green card. will that be a problem?
