212(e) Waiver Approval: Two-Year Home-Country Physical Presence Requirement

Approval for Exceptional Hardship Waiver for Client from India, Program Sponsor: ECFMG

Filed November 16, 2016
Approved July 25, 2017

About this Case, The Facts:

  • Client married a U.S. Citizen
  • Together the couple was expecting their first child
  • Applicant had left the U.S. after completion of his J-1 program
  • Leaving his pregnant wife alone in the U.S. Applicant’s wife was having a high risk pregnancy

To win this case we needed to argue that the wife would suffer if Applicant were unable to return to the U.S. and also if wife tried to relocate abroad.

Regarding the scenario of continued separation, we successfully argued Applicant needed to return to U.S. to support his wife in her pregnancy, child birth, and post partem period.

Regarding the scenario of having the wife relocate, we researched and crafted arguments based on country conditions in India and the wife’s ties to the U.S.

Applicant then reentered the U.S. on a tourist visa while the j waiver was pending and ended up filing for adjustment of status so he could stay with his wife and now newborn child. Thankfully we received the approval of client’s j waiver before his “greencard” (adjustment of status) was adjudicated.

Filed: August 15, 2016
Approved: June 20, 2017

Client came to the U.S. on a J1 Visa and had a U.S. Citizen child.

Since in this case the U.S. Citizen is a child and the mother is on a J2 Visa, also subject to the home residency requirement, we successfully argued that if the waiver were denied the child could not stay in the U.S. alone and the child would be forced to relocate to Saudi Arabia for two years. In terms of exceptional hardship in Saudi Arabia, we discussed the danger and discrimination of Shia Muslims in Saudi Arabia in addition to other damaging conditions.

Filed: July 27, 2016
Approved: December 23, 2016

  • Client is from Mexico
  • Client entered illegally in 2005
  • Client has remained in the U.S. illegally
  • Client is married to U.S. Citizen who has several children
  • Children are all U.S. Citizens

In order to win these i601-a cases we have to successfully argue that client’s U.S. Citizen wife would suffer extreme hardship if she were to relocate to Mexico with client and also if she remained in the U.S. without client.

Client’s wife and her youngest children receive medical coverage through the state of California and if she relocated to Mexico they would lose access to the medical care they require. Having client in Mexico while client’s wife remains in the U.S. would also result in extreme hardship to his wife because the client is the sole financial provider of the family.

We were able to successfully argue client cannot support his spouse physically, financially, or emotionally from abroad.

We also argued client’s wife cannot relocate to El Salvador because in El Salvador she would lack access to the medical care she needs, she doesn’t speak Spanish, she could not continue her education, and because of the dangerous country conditions. As a discretionary matter we also pointed out client has a U.S. Citizen child from a prior relationship who is dependent on his child support and their relationship for his well-being and development.

i-601a Extreme Hardship Approval Document

The Facts about this i-601a hardship waiver approval, how we successfully argued the case

Filed: January 17, 2017
Approved: April 21, 2017

  • The Client entered the U.S. illegally more than 15 years ago
  • He never had any trouble with the law
  • He is married to a U.S. Citizen
  • Client’s wife had dealt with some serious health issues in the past which had a possibility of recurring

In order to win these waivers we have to prove that client’s U.S. Citizen spouse would suffer extreme hardship both if she tried to relocate abroad and also if she remained in the U.S. without the client.

Relocation wasn’t an option for client’s wife because of the poor country conditions in client’s home country and also because of her health needs.

We also argued client’s wife would suffer extreme hardship if client was abroad because even though she worked he was the primary financial provider for their family and her mental health would decline due to the separation.

Most importantly she might need to depend on client again if her health issues reoccurred.

Finally, we argued client was worthy of a favorable exercise of discretion, remarkably he had been working for the same employer for nearly his entire stay in the U.S. We are so happy to have been able to help another hardworking client and his lovely wife.
