  1. My Hungarian fiance and I (US Citizen) are planning on getting married in Ireland (where he and his family reside) this September. After that, we plan to apply for the CR-1 Visa. At first, we were thinking we could have him stay on VWP for less than 90 days and then he could go to Mexico for a few days and re-enter. I now realize that could easily constitute border hopping. Anyway, some complications to our situation: 1) I am a full-time student and can't take longer than 2 quarters (about 5 months) off of enrolment to maintain my admission. I am currently on leave for work and will have to return in September just after we get married. 2) He is currently trying to find an EU-based remote working job so he can make money while in the US, which would mean he quits his current job. Is that an ok thing to do? Would that maintain enough of a tie to EU to eliminate issues when entering US on VWP? 4) While he has a well-paying job and mine is decent, we both have student loans and a wedding to pay for (though we're trying to keep costs to a minimum!). 5) While we're very good at long distance, we are looking forward to finally living together. If our only option is to live apart and make short but very few visits, we'll do more than our best. But given it's a marriage, we want to do everything we can to remain physically together. We're now considering the following: - We get married in September in Ireland. - We enter the US a few days/weeks after our wedding, fiance on VWP with a return ticket already purchased for December. I go to school and work for one quarter. Fiance works remotely from EU-based job. While living in the US, we would be staying in a studio apartment rented from my parents. No formal lease to attach him permanently to the address. - While in US, we apply for CR-1. - In December, before his 90 days on VWP are up, we return to Ireland and stay there while fiance continues to work remotely or perhaps at his old job? Not sure yet. I may be able to do some online coursework and care for his family members (non-paid). I may also be able to do research for my degree there (we met while I was studying abroad in Ireland). I could be there for up to 90 days on a tourist visa. - Depending on CR-1 status at this point, we could either 1) live separately for a short time waiting on CR-1 greencard approval, me studying in US, him working in Ireland. Or we could 2) do the switcheroo back to the US so I can study in US while he's here working remotely. - Depending on options we would then: 1) Schedule our interview at the consulate in Dublin and he would enter US on CR-1. Would I need to be at the interview? or 2) Schedule an interview at an embassy in the US. Is it possible to do this for visitors on the VWP? Then have him fly in from Mexico or Canada (or somewhere else with inexpensive flights) on CR-1. It's a little complicated, but is this situation viable? I will so appreciate any advice anyone can give. We already decided after months of back-and-forth that K-1 wasn't going to work for us so we're really trying to make the CR-1 work. And of course this is all dependent on the COVID-19 situation. Sorry if this was a headache to read! Much love
  2. Hi! I am a UK citizen planning to travel to the US in a few weeks. I entered the H1-B work visa lottery in 2017 and was found eligible, but lost the lottery. For ESTA purposes, would this count as being denied a visa? i.e. am I still eligible for ESTA travel and can I answer "no" to if I was ever denied a US visa?

    ESTA visits

    I visited my husband on an esta on the 23rd of july, and left on the 16th of october (an 87 day visit). What i'm wondering is, what is the recommended time before visiting again with esta, and if the duration of your last trip plays any roll with it. I know it's all up to the cbp officer if they allow me to enter the country, but do reasons for a visit have anything with getting denied or approved access? Before filing for a cr-1, we have to do some paperwork with getting my last name changed for the i-130, and it would be much cheaper and easier to deal with if done in the u.s.
  4. Do I need a waiver for violation of Section 212 (a ) (7) (A) (i) (I) after the 5 years I was barred from returning to US? The 5 years are over and Ihave double citizenship and I applied for the Visa Waiver Program on my Chilean passaport and my permission to travel was authorized. Can I travel to US with the permission ESTA or I need to get the Visa And the waiver? Please if you know how to fix my situation let me know! Thanks a lot!
  5. My husband and I are filing for the I-130 visa (CR1), he lives in the United States and I live in Canada. He will (obviously) be petitioning for me. I lived with him in the United States from November 2017-January 2018, I also lived with him for a few weeks while we got married back in October of 2017, and on our marriage license we put down his physical address for the both of us as we had a confidential marriage license (not our choice, it'll be fine as we had two lawyers confirm it won't be an issue as long as we have a bona fide relationship- but I appreciate the concern lol). On the form I-130a, it states that I have to write down the past physical addresses that I've lived within the past 5 years (within or outside of the USA). While living with my husband I was on a Visa Waiver Program (VWP), will this be a red flag? Normally I wouldn't write it down at all but because it's on our marriage license I feel obligated to have to state I lived with him for 2.5 months in the USA while on a VWP? I'm not even sure if that's legal? I have no idea.
  6. I’d really appreciate some help, so thanks in advance. I’m really desperate. I got married to my husband in Florida, who is a USC. I’m a UKC. We hoped we could live in the UK, but everything has gone wrong here. I want a fresh start over there and just need to be with my husband permanently. I can’t cope with the thought of being separated. I’d like to know if I can apply for adjustment of status (I-485) at the same time as filing the I-130 while I’m visiting the US on the ESTA/VWP? Also, is it true that I can stay there while they are being processed, even if it takes longer than the 90 days that you are allowed on the VWP? Please help!
