My wife holds E2, I am looking to apply as E2 spouse, but the intention is to stay just for 2 to 3 months and come back.
I have a very stable in Saudi Arabia and well paid job and been working in a bank for the last 14 years here in Saudi....
I have house and commercial properties in Pakistan,my parents lives there and sisters also.
I do have B1/B2 visa and travelled couple of time...... but since the status of wife changed therefore the old artorney told me to apply for E2 spouse, else they will stop you at the airport as being potential Immigrant
My fear is if godforbid the counseler reject my E2 spouse visa at the embassy he/she might also cancell the existing B1/B2, just because my wife changed her status in US and didnt comeback and applied via embassy?
Perhaps the immigrant intent or to punish?
If your spouse holds the E-2 status then you are eligible for the E-2 visa as a dependent. If you maintain a home outside the U.S. you should present such evidence at the time of your interview. You can also contact the attorney that prepared your spouse's E-2 for guidance since that attorney has previously provided you with advice. Good luck to you.
Traveling to the US in B-2 status while your spouse is in E-2 does not, in and of itself, mean you will be denied due to immigrant intent. There are a number of other relevant factors.
