my boyfriend overstayed his b2 visa by 150 days. I am a Greencard holder and we had our son during his stay in the US. He wanted to support me during the last months of pregnancy and stayed longer for the same reason after our son (US citizen) was born. We departed 150 days later and are in Germany (our home country) right now. In April we would like to travel to the US and booked a flight already. Now I am afraid that my boyfriend will be denied. Could you please help out...Thanks in Advance.
He is not inadmissible because he did not overstay by 180 days or more, but you're going to have a huge problem proving that you do not plan to overstay this time around. His past overstay will show up when he meets the border official, who has the authority to deny him entry into the US. Make sure you bring plenty of documentation showing that he plans to return (flight info, evidence of a job and home abroad).
In the future, if you need to stay in the US longer than authorized, you should apply for an extension of the visa with USCIS. If you had submitted evidence of your pregnancy, he probably would have gotten his visa extended without a problem!
