Feisty1 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Feisty1 - questions on banking and name change

If I spend say 80 days in usa then I head back to uk for minimum of 81 as I've been told this is ok. I always carry proof of uk residence and bills, should I change things like my uk/usa bank accounts to new married name. Or should I wait until I've got green card to do all these things, as I intend keeping my uk bank account open for when I decide to start drawing a pension, which I don't intend doing for a few more years. I'm slightly confused that I will be married with a new surname, but all my documents will still be in my maiden name.

High risk, general advice is to stay out twice as long as you are on and less than 90 days.

question. Once married, then CR1 forms downloaded, completed and sent off, it's then just a waiting game, should I change things like my uk/usa bank accounts to new married name. Or should I wait until I've got green card to do all these things, as I intend keeping my uk bank account open for when I decide to start drawing a pension, which I don't intend doing for a few more years.

Please note that this forum is for questions regarding visas and citizenship only. Questions about pensions, names etc should posted in Mai US forum or Trailer Park. Thank you.

So the advice or "spend more time out than in" has now become "spend more that twice as long out that in"? In there any basis for this, or is it just armchair speculation?

Personally I never agreed with the flat "more time out than in" advice, and I suspect that the jump to "more than twice as out than in" is spurious. Factors on being turned away for being in the US too long include age - young people (i) have a habit of trying to flout the rules, and (ii) are less likely to have accumulated assets/ savings to be able to support themselves without working and/or to be able to spend prolonged periods away from their place of work, and I don't see that either of these two factors apply to Feisty1.

You are visiting, 90 days in 90 days out is going to raise eyebrows.

Says who? I already said I knew someone who abused the system for several years.

Merely parroting the same thing doesn't prove it to be true, nor do reported problems for people in their 20's or 30's necessarily apply to people in their 50's or 60's.

I have seen all age groups bounced, does seem to happen less to those retired.
