Hi,

 

My spouse is Japanese (married in Japan), and both of us are expats living outside both our home countries (not in writing, our home addresses and permanent residencies are inside both the US and Japan respectively).

We want to visit my family in the US for about a month with no intention of staying longer or applying/switching to any other visa for her while we're there.

She already has her ESTA and came to the US for 2 weeks last year before we were married.

My question is what should we expect?  And for how long could we continue to do this for?  We both do volunteer work and live in a third country and plan on doing so for a while, so this looks to be a question into the foreseeable future as well.

 

Thanks

No one is guarenteed to be allowed into the USA unless you are a USC. With that being said coming in on esta as long as you have strong evidence to leave after stay you might be allowed in for how long is up to cbp it could be a few days, a week, or the time you want of a month. There is not a single person here that can tell you how long you will be granted entry for.
