Thanks in advance for everyone's previous replies to my posts, very appreciated!

New question please. If my finacé and marry before he leaves on his 90 day VWP and he then returns to London and we file the Cr-1 (spousal visa) which I

know can take about a year and a half possibly to get done - Can he travel to the US to visit me (not stay) after the Cr-1 is filed and we are waiting?

Thanks for the replies, appreciated. Sorry I didn't see the other threads.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Not a problem. You have been mostly in a different forum, so I wanted to point you to the "visiting" threads so you could read all the detailed experiences-- some good and some bad. It all depends on the officer at the airport, but you can get a good sense of possibilities.
