Will they let me visit for two months?

Hi everybody,

I am starting to get really nervous...

So we're going through the Fiancé Visa process, we sent in our case in March, it landed in Texas and it'll probably take until November for us to receive our NOA2. I visited my partner a lot recently, three weeks over christmas, two weeks in February and two weeks in May, all because he is not able to visit me at the moment.

We made plans for the summer and I got myself maybe a little too excited and bought a ticket for two months (in between semesters, I study and only work part-time) from THIS THURSDAY until mid Semptember.

I know it's technically allowed to stay 90 days and it's way less, but still a looong time. My passport is full of stamps exclusively from the US and I got weird comments about it before, yet was always let in.

What do you think my chances are for a long time like that? Any advise?

My partner and I have been a couple for years, he has not proposed to me yet. We know we're applying for a fiancé visa and see ourselves as more than boyfriend and girlfriend, yet want to take as much time as we need before marriage.

Should I call him my boyfriend or my fiancé upon entering the US? I feel like it might make a difference (fiancé = I have to convince them I'm not going to marry on this visit and stay illegally, which is obviously not my intention since we are waiting for NOA2; boyfriend = sounds weird and uncertain; if I have to explain myself more and mention the visa application it might sound I tried to lie??)

Thank you so much to anybody responding to me going a bit crazy here!

You can visit yea, I visited for 2 months before NOA2. I would, along with anyone else here would advise truthfulness, but not volunteering any information. Be sure to walk with your K1 stuff just in case, in any eventuality you have documentation that you're seeking to move through the proper channels and have sufficient ties back home (school is a good tie).

You have a good record of coming to the US and returning appropriately (so all those stamps should be good for something!). I agree with the above poster that you should carry the K-1 paperwork to prove that you aren't trying to circumvent the system (I know you could just abandon it, etc., but it shows you at least know the right steps and are taking those steps).

And always be truthful at POE.
