I live in Mexico with my wife and daughter, both of them U.S. citizens, and currently hold a B1/B2/BCC (have had it for 6 years, way before I met my wife). We got married about 2 months ago in the U.S. (we've been living together in Mexico for over a year) and, even if it was not originally in our plans, we would like to move to her hometown.
An alien who is admitted as a B1/B2 can file for adjustment of status as an immediate relative. However, a person cannot be admitted to the U.S. as a B1/B2 if they are intending to immigrate, since that is contrary to the requirements for the B1/B2.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
one cannot enter the US on a b2 with an intent to immigrate.
