proof I did not intend to stay

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Do I need a letter from my former Employer (when I lived in my homecountry) to verify that I worked there when I went to visit the USA as a tourist with a coworker.

I just want to make sure they can’t say I came here with intend to stay. Would this help as it would show I had a job and intend to return to my home country?

I asked my Lawyer about that. He thinks because I lived with my husband several years together before we got married it would indicate that I wasn’t planning to immigrate. Some one else told me I would be fine because of a 30-60-90 day rule?

scooby06,

Did you stay in the USA when you came to visit? Or did you retun home and have since come back to the USA.

People routinely suggest that a letter from an employer, showing that one has a job, is good evidence of one's intent to leave the USA and return home. Yet the issue is not what the employer expects you to do, the issue is what do you intend to do. It takes only 1 short phone call or e-mail after passing through the immigration desk at the POE to tell the employer 'Boss, I quit - fooled both you and the CBP officer.'

Only evidence I had that I intended to return to the UK was my flight ticket.... I was not asked for any proof at our interview...

but I guess a letter from your last employer would not hurt to have just incase you are asked about it at interview...

I’m not trying to fool anyone. And I currently would not dear to do so. I just want to make sure I have all the things I need.

I came here on vacation. When I meat my husband my heart just opened up and I felt full of life like never before. Love is a wonderful thing and makes you realize you can not live with out it. When my vacation was over I just could not get into the airplane. All I wanted was to be with my man. Since then we have been living together and I never left the USA.

Immigration and marriage do not necessarily go hand in hand. Remaining in the country when one has entered on a tourist visa, is the intent that is in question. Did you have a home/flat/apartment/house in your home country? What was its disposition when you left for vacation?

scooby,

I was being facetious, I did not intend to suggest that you personally were trying to fool anyone.

But you prove my point - you had a job that your employer expected you to return to but it was a weaker tie than your tie to the USA, and you gave it up in a flash. So much for one's job as a reason to return home when one has a love in the USA.

And you are in an excellent position if I understand you correctly - you did not know your husband when you entered the USA, you met him after you entered while you were here on vacation, yes? That's the key to your success.
