I visited the US this year March - June on Visa Waiver, total 88 days. During this period, I met someone who is now my girlfriend and we totally fell in love with each other. I returned back to Europe and then flew to the US again. Of course, they denied entry because it was too close from previous leave, and I didn't have a return ticket (I know, I should have).
I co-own a company in the UK, so I have strong ties to the UK.
I visited the embassy in London to get a tourist Visa with an honest reason. The interview took a long time; they probably were getting information about my entry denial, but finally they told me I should obtain a K1 Fiancé visa instead, so my Visa was denied. The problem is, she is legally still married, but separated and based on Louisiana law, her divorce will not be final until April next year. I want to visit her over Christmas and I wonder if it makes sense to try a Tourist Visa again in November. What more can I do for it? I tried to convince them that I want to do everything legally, but that didn't make any change (but I didn't tell them about divorce yet).
