Hello and thank you for using our service. My name isXXXXX and I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help you. I just ask for two things: 1) Before you sign off, please remember to rate me positively as that is the only way that I am paid and your question does not close after you rate me so I can still answer additional questions without additional charge if you have follow-ups even weeks or months later; and, 2) IF I have bad news for you, please remember I am only the messenger. When you rate me, it is my service to you that you rate, not whether the news is good or bad. I will try my best to give you a solution, but sometimes the law does not have a good one.
I am sorry for the issue that you are having. You most likely would be denied an ESTA. If you are, you will need to apply for a B-2 tourist visa, explain that you need to go back to get your things and show proof of the evidence that you will come back home after you get your things. You can use evidence such as registering at a school in the UK, starting a new job in the UK, etc. The more things you have to show you will be going back to the UK, the better chance you have of getting the B-2.
Just in case, here is a link:
Again, I am truly sorry for the issues that you have gone through with the U.S. immigration process. I wish I had better news for you.
Please let me know if you have additional questions and please do not forget to rate my service to you (not the state of the law) as that is the only way that I can get credit for my assistance to you. Even after you rate the service, I can still answer additional questions for you without additional charge. If you do rate me positively, a bonus is always appreciated. If you would like to request me in the future, just go to http://www.justanswer.com/law/expert-guillermosenmartin/. Thank you!
