Default Overstayed Visa

I'm Australian and would like to return to the U.S. to visit in-laws with my partner but I overstayed my visa on my last visit.

On my last visit, I received a 6-month visitor visa then extended my visa another 6 months. I overstayed my visa by 11 weeks; I was helping my same-sex partner move. This was two years ago. I did not work for anyone while in the States.

What can I do if any to improve my chances of not getting turned away at Immigration?

Thanks for any help.

You should bring evidence of your strong ties to the country where you live now - evidence of a job, family, house, club memberships, bank accounts, etc. Anything you can think of that would show an immigration officer that you really intend to return home at the end of this trip.
