    I have australian friends who have been able to get temporary visas for their helpers to join them in the US for periods of around one month.
    They applied as per details on the website and had no problems.

    US immigration can be crazy. I applied for a fiance visa for my (now) husband as I wanted to get married in the States . We literally never heard back from immigration! We waited as long as we could but never got a response "yay" or "nay" from them and after 6 months of just waiting we decided to do the sensible thing and get married in Hong Kong.

    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”
