coming back on visitors visa

I lived overseas with my wife up until march when we both came to the US to visit my relatives and to give my mother a chance to see our son. My wife and son stayed for the three month period and left before the visa was up. My question is this, I stayed behind to do some work here and will be here for a while and will probably settle here. I want my son and wife to come visit again soon and what are the chances of them having any trouble returning on a visitors visa a couple months after they left? We are still trying to decided when and where to file papers for her green card but in the meantime we still have a house in Europe etc. I just dont want her to come here and get turned away at the airport coming.

Anyone have experience with this, got turned away or let in no problem???

Thanks in advance.

The general guideline is to spend more time outside the USA than inside; so if she spent 90 days with you, she should spend 90 days outside before attempting re-entry. She may be getting a difficult time anyway, due to having a USC husband now living in the USA, so definitely bring proof she will return home (house, job, bills etc).

Thanks for your reply, I appreciate it. I was looking under your posting at your personal experience and how quickly the process took for you. Did you go through a lawyer??? Were you married to a US citizen abroad or did you marry once you came here??? Did your husband live abroad with you or was he already living here in the us?

Thanks

No, lawyers slow things down!

It happened so quickly for us because we filed "DCF"- directly with the embassy, byp[assing the wait at USCIS and NVC in the USA. You can do that as long as the US citizen spouse lives in a foreign country legally for at least 6 months.

In our case, once we decided to get married, my husband came to live with me in Ireland as I didn't want to leave the country at the time and had a better job/ carer than him; also, immigration to Ireland is much easier! Then a few years later, we decided to move to the USA for economic reasons and because houses are cheaper for our growing family.
