Past Lawsuit and H1B Stamping in H1B : Visa Stamp Posted June 29, 2018 · Report reply When I was last in the US in 2013, I had to rush back home due to my mother's illness. I could not properly close the lease agreement for my apartment. Subsequently, I got sued. I paid the claim amount from India and the suit was dismissed "with prejudice". Now I am going for my H1B stamping. Will this past / settled lawsuit affect my chances due to a negative assessment of my background?
