I missed the bus somewhere. The father worked in the US then transferred to Norway, got laid off, has medical issues, has been unemployed since 2005, let his GC expire and decided to stay in Norway. What is the original nationality of the family? Why is the poster so set on getting his GC even by "getting my father to go down to the Embassy in Norway to file for a SB-1 visa, just for the heck of it". Does anyone see where the father qualifies for SB-1? I do not see the intend to return nor a protracted stay beyond his control.

What does the poster expect to find in CA with no education, no job in today's market?

Just for mentioning it, I do have education and a degree. I'm planning on going to school as well to get a bachelors degree after setting myself up financially.
