My name is Thiago, I'm brazilian and my girlfriend is american. We are thinking of marriage, however, we would like to give it more time. Nonetheless, to get a b-2 visa might be impossible for me. I'm a lawyer but I don't work - I'm doing public exams... and I live by my parents' income. I was thinking of having a b-2 visa just to visit her and get back, since I have a masters to start next year. Every travel agent told me to not tell anyone that I'm committed to an american girl, that it is suicide... but, sincerely, I think it is the only way to prove I won't either do anything illegal or stay over the time I'm allowed. My girlfriend, though, thinks I should lie. I'm completely against start an official relationship with the american State with a lie. It can bring me trouble. If they deny me because they are suspicious I'm a criminal or I'll overstay... I can always have a K-1, if I say the truth since the beginning. But my girlfriend insists that I should say that I'm going to visit the U.S. just for some days... then we meet, and of course I will not overstay. Of course, though, I won't be allowed to stay more than 10 days, since I dont have money for a roadtrip. What do you think?
