Can you visit while on the spousal visa process?

Hi Everyone

First of all really sorry if this has been asked before - I tried using the search function of the forum to find similar posts but my computer keeps crashing (it's pretty much like an ancient dinosaur LOL)

Originally my partner and I were planning on applying for the fiance visa but after our research for the past several weeks, we seem to be more leaning towards the spousal visa. My question is though has anyone experienced going over to visit their husband/wife while the visa process was still in play? I'm just worried that they are far more likely to deny me entry if I go over and say I'm visiting my husband

Thanks in advance for any help and really sorry again if this has been posted for the millionth time

Yes you can visit, lots of people do (assuming you can travel on the Visa Waiver Program or hold a tourist visa).

To be on the safe side, bring some documentation to show you intend to return home, but chances are you won't even be asked for it.

I'm currently in the CR1 visa process and I'm in the states visiting my husband. I brought loads of evidence to show I was going to return home again, and I also have my ESTA. I wasn't asked for anything at immigration.

Good luck!

I have been turned away after trying to visit my fiance and had my VWP revoked. The husband/wife needs to bring proof they have ties to their country such as home or car loan. I brought evidence that I was employed and it was not enough.
