Question
Hi, I am a Canadian senior citizen retired and living in Mexico. I have independent income and do not work. My fiancée is an American citizen and works for a major US college. She will be moving to Mexico in about one year after retiring from her job, selling her house and getting rid of a lot of stuff. We hope to marry this summer in the US. I am not applying nor do I seek US citizenship nor a Green Card but would like to live with her until such time as we move to Mexico. What hurdles can we expect in this regard?  Thank you for any information that you can supply.

Answer
Hello Ron,

As a Canadian citizen, you can enter and live in the United States for 6 months, without authorization to work.  According to your situation, I believe you can enter the US for 6 months to live with her, and exit and re-enter the US with your Canadian passport to get another 6 months.  You may need to enter the US from different port of entries each time to avoid problem.
