Multiple visits on Visitor visa

Recommended Posts

Me and my spouse are on H1B - I 140 approved from our corresponding employers.

My mom visited us from Feb 2019 to mid July 2019 (Over 5 months) to be with us for the birth of our second child in March 2019. My elder kid was enrolled to a full time day care all that time and I was on my maternity leave and primary care giver for my second child from March to July. This is for perspective that she was not here for the child care but was here to spend time with us. 

Also as of now my elder kid is enrolled for a full time school program and we have a full time care arranged for the younger kid. We wished to have her here for about 2+ months in November to early or mid January 2020.

Given the scenario, would she face an issue at port of entry for frequent visits?

For the context she has her valid visa from 2015 and has been here only twice as yet - 3 months in 2015 and 5+ months this year.

Any inputs or perspective on the situation would be much appreciated. Thank you.

what is so special about that time frame, given that she just left in July? 

Having just spent 5 months in the US with a barely 4 month gap before returning to 'spend time' begs the question: Why? What is so special about that time period, what is not occupying her time in her own country to the extent she can (apparently) return rather quickly to do what?

All these statements about alleged child care are just statements, because something does not add up....no one 'needs' to 'visit' 8 months out of a year just for entertainment value...something else is almost always going on....

I have been through exact situation with single parent traveling to US on visitor visa for child birth and returning back in few months. Your mother is fine and most likely will not face any questioning. Just have here return journey itinerary/tickets with here at POE.

spoken like a true expert....not!!! Quick turn arounds following a lengthy visit suggest something other than mere tourism (in my 23+ years of experience as a CO)....
