Begging For Your Help!

I am a uk citizen with a American fiancée we have know each other for 2 years & engaged for 10 months, we have spent 3 weeks together in Florida and she has been to the uk twice, once for 6 months and again for 4 months both on a vistors visa. She arrived in the uk to visit on the 19th April 2008 only to be refused entry because she said we are planning to get married in the future. So now she has to have a fiancée visa to return, which as I understand is only valid for 6 months and then we have to prove our marriage and apply for a spouse visa, which I understand can be expensive, so what I would like to know is, can I go to America with a tourist visa, marry her, come back to the uk alone and then apply for a spouse visa so she can come here?

Yes but he still can do what he suggests, except unless he's overstaying the leave given to VWP visits, he won't need a visa. USA has fiance visa but they are for foreigners intending to immigrate to the US. The visa facilitates the immigration and requires the marriage but if the foreigner can get here on some other visa, they can marry and leave without any special visa.

The caution is, you don't want to mention you're coming to the USA to get married because you could also be turned away. I would suggest giving a more general truthful answer, like simply "pleasure" or "vacation" (a honeymoon is a kind of vacation) or visiting family and friends.

You will need to check the State marriage requirements for where you plan on marrying. Each State is different. Also check this link for tips on visiting.

You need to find out what the requirements are for the state or county you will be marrying in. As stated previously, and as you've learned, it's probably best not to offer any more information than the poe officer asks. If you are asked, of course, it's always advisable to tell the truth. Be sure you bring PLENTY of proof that you plan on returning to the UK.

As a side note, my fiance was denied entry into the U.S. last September (after having lived together for a year and a 1/2) so belive me when I tell you that I know how you are feeling. Gather what you need to and get it going asap. Time will pass quickly and soon you will be together again....and be able to stay that way!

good luck

You had asked what paperwork you require. Each State, and even each County in each State, has a different requirement as to paperwork. So, for instance, if you are getting married in Marion County in the State of Florida you would go here to see what the requirements are.

Right, just have your fiance go to her county clerk's office marriage license window and ask what you'll need to bring. You may also be able to see the requirements on the county's website.
