Please help me with expert advice
My father is a deadbeat and I’ve never lived with him and knew nothing about him. In 2009 I visited the US and in the ds160, I filled his name and dob as was on my birth records. Recently, I heard that he’s married and living in the US under another name and when he was fillling his paper work for his green card he listed us (me and my siblings l) as his children. Now I’m applying to the US again for a visit and I have to fill the ds160 again.

My question is, I want to fill the same details I have, but I want to select no to the question, “is your father in the US?”. Is there a way they will know since the name and date of birth I have of him is different from the one he has out there?

If I say yes, I don’t know anything about him and so I can’t answer questions on him. Although I don’t mind but I wouldn’t want myself to be the reason why he will be caught though I don’t like him much.

I guess my question is, is there a way to link him to me even though the name and date of birth are different? Please help

Country of residence Pakistan

Wife is a government servent

One of our client requested me to come US and help him in setting up processes and work flow for his new outpatient CATH lab.
Will be visiting there for about two weeks. Primary purpose will be helping out the client and secondary will be to visit some good places.
Have an invitation letter from client who will bear the cost of my travelling and stay.

What are my odds of getting a vusa. My current employer doesn't want to go but I want to go to get some experience of how things work on ground - will the embassy verify this with my employer?

Ds160 instead of ds260 due to dispute between spouses and co sponsor

I have a question for you

I m Indian citizen at present residing in India.

I m married to US citizen (Indian origin) 3 years ago.

We have received my file alien number and approval for immgirant visa from NVC.

But now when we are about to file my DS260 papers along with affidavits of support for immigrant visa interview. My spouse is not coorporating and wants to part aways. I have supported her financially in last 3 years last financial support was in October 2019 for $6100/-.

Due to hick ups in processing of DS260, can I apply for visit visa filling DS160 on my own?

Need suggestion/help for my parents B2 visa interview
I applied for my mother's B2 visa in 2019. Her visa was rejected . She was a govt employee at that time but recently got retired .

Now i am planning to apply B2 visitor visa for my mother and father together . Both are retired .

Does being "retired" now affects the chances of my parents to get a visa ?

Note : I am working in US. I have my elder brother in India already with my parents . Should i mark my father retired or should i mark my father as running business with my elder brother ( Business is on name of my elder brother ) .
