I was trying to search this group so I wouldn't have to do a post, but I didn't see anything so I hope this isn't too repetitive. (Or maybe I just searched wrong hee hee)

I am going to be flying to England to spend 3 weeks with my fiance and his family before he has to move and then we are going to fly back to Chicago together. When we go through customs, am I allowed to go through the same non US citizen line with him or do we need to separate? Wasn't sure if I needed to be with him for any questions, or for the fact so he doesn't have to do it alone with that envelope he has to bring.

Thank you in advance! :)

We arrived together from London, much like you are doing. I went through the US citizen line and he went to visitor. My line was shorter so I went around and joined him after I had finished. It will be up to how Chicago handles things, but there shouldn't be a reason why both can't go through the visitor line. And there also shouldn't be a reason why he can't do it alone. After the initial line, most places send the immigrant to a secondary room where they open the packet and process the paperwork. I used that time to go retrieve our luggage.

Call Chicago and ask them any questions you have before you go. Here's the passenger service manager.

Often you will see someone helping to organize the arriving passengers into the proper lines for immigration. In our case they had us go through the US citizen line together. It went very smoothly as the CBP officer had done a K1 for her spouse as well. :)

Forgot to say, this number is for CBP so you should speak to somebody familiar with immigration things. I called Houston before we came and cleared up a few things....like do they care if my checked luggage is full of the immigrant's things. Is there anything that should be written on my green customs form when the stuff isn't really mine, but my fiances? (Houston's answer was it is fine to bring his things in bags checked under my name and just write "household goods" and don't put any list or values.)

Nik and I went through immigration together when he came on VWP, we asked the person at the split if we could go through one or the other together and they assigned us to the non-citizens line.
