My US Citizen husband and I (French Citizen) are newly married. Can we visit the US to attend our son's graduation while waiting for CR1 visa/Green Card?
CR1 Visa/Green Card can take up to 15 months to recieve. How many times can we visit The US while waiting for The CR1 Visa/Green card?
What proof or documents will suffice to show my Husband and I have no intention to stay while visiting the US?
I will move this question to immigration for you.

Generally, French citizens should be able to visit the US on visa waiver program (ESTA). However, having a pending CR1 case at USCIS (I-130 petition stage) or NVC/Embassy (visa application stage) will probably be used against you for having a definite immigrant intent - i.e., you may get rejected at ESTA online registration (as you must disclose a US citizen husband) or can get refused entry at the airport. While you may get lucky (no question asked) or may be able to convince that you are going to go back to your country for your visa interview, I do not recommend given the risks of being rejected (and accused of material misrepresentation).
