We are delighted to share this new Success Story related to a J-1 Visa Waiver Application for one of our most recent Clients.

The Facts

  • The Client had been in the U.S. for several years on a J-1 with government financing and his spouse was a J-2.
  • The couple had a baby, now a young child, born in the U.S.
  • At birth, the child had an abnormal newborn screening and since then had several respiratory infections.

How we Successfully argued in favor of a J-1 Waiver of Section 212(e)

In fact we successfully argued that the child received inadequate health care on a trip to Egypt because ill
  • We successfully argued the exceptional hardship to the child’s development and mental health.
  • We also successfully argued other exceptional hardship inherent in the dangerous country conditions.
  • Finally, we successfully argued that the J-1 father faced hardship in Egypt in terms of his employment prospects and future and this was relevant insofar as the hardship would affect the U.S. citizen child.
