I'm a European J-1 visa holder. My spouse has a J-2 dependent visa. We recently had a child, born outside the U.S. We want to bring him to the U.S. very soon.
We could get him a J-2 visa, but that will take a while (we're kind of in a hurry). So we're thinking that we could get our child an ESTA, then my spouse could travel to the U.S. with him, and stay for less than 90 days. After that, we would all return back to our home country.
What worries me is that it may look strange or suspicious if my spouse enters on a J-2 visa together with a baby who's on ESTA.
Has anyone done this?
