Hello! I am (removed), a US citizen and my husband is (removed), a French citizen. We have submitted our i-130 about a month ago to start the process of him coming to live here. I heard it takes a long time so he wants to visit some in the mean time and I want to visit him too.
Well, my nephew is about to be born in two weeks and we will be an Uncle and an Aunt! Yay! He wanted to come and visit during this time to meet Kai for about a month. But we are both really worried if he can or if it will affect our visa. We absolutely do not want to risk our visa getting canceled for any reason. He would visit using the VWP.
The thing is, he doesn't really have strong ties. He doesn't own a car because trains are a much better option economically for him and his family. He lives with his mother right now because she was going through cancer and just recently beat it. He takes care of her with his brother and helps her financially but nothing is in his name. So he obviously has to go back to help his mother. He has a bank account and his own cell phone plan, and he has close friends he visits too. And he would have a return ticket too. I actually plan on going to France shortly after his visit to the US anyways, but I am not sure the CBP will care.
What are other ties that others use that I might not be thinking of?
We absolutely want to do things the right way because it is our future were talking about. We wouldn't ever want to risk that, especially since we have waited so long already. We dated through covid and couldn't ever see each other for the full duration of it.
If anyone wants more information just ask and I will reply.
Based on what I said here and any supplemental information gave, what would be best to do in our case?
