Homestead, PA asked in Immigration Law for Pennsylvania

Q: Which visa should my husband apply for?

My husband is Guatemalan, and we live together in Guatemala. I would like him to come with me to the States to visit, but we have no intention of living permanently in the States. He applied for a tourist visa to come with me on a visit, but he was denied when they saw we were married with a kid. I don't want to apply for permanent residency ( unless necessary) since we won't live in the States. How should we proceed?

A: Your fact pattern is sketchy? What are you trying to achieve? If you just want to visit (any country for that matter) and you were denied a vistor's/tourist visa--then there's nothing more; other than seeing if you can re-apply in the near future with more concrete proof that you will return to the home country??
