Visiting fiancé on ESTA while waiting for K-1... Is my evidence of ties to UK enough?

Hey guys

I'm going to see my fiancé next weekend, for two weeks. I haven't needed to supply proof of my ties to the UK before but I feel I'll need to now. I have put together a file with the following:

A letter from my employer, stating when I am expected back to work

A copy of my work schedule, showing when I am due back to work

My return ticket for my flight to England, along with my train tickets for when I get back to England

My fiance's plane ticket to England, for when he visits in November (to show I'll need to be back there by November)

A copy of my NOA1/I-797C, which my fiancé received last week

Wage slips to show my salary

A bank statement

Another letter from my employer to show how long I have worked for them, including my salary and how much vacation time I'm allowed (25 days per year).

I live at home, so I don't have lease. The only contract I have is my car insurance.

Should I take anything else with me?

Any help would be amazing ! Thanks :D

Hello!!!

You should be fine, I visited my fiancé over 10 times while waiting on TSC to process our petition. Enjoy your time in the States :wub:

You probably won't be asked to prove ties, especially for such a short visit but it's good to be prepared and what you have is great. Enjoy your trip :)
