J-1 Hardship Waiver Approved for Egyptian Applicant



J-1 Waiver 2-year foreign residence requirement, section 212(e)

Filed: May 15, 2017
Approved: April 5, 2018

The Facts

  • Applicant has been in the U.S. since 2015
  • Applicant and his wife have two young children born in the U.S.

In order to win hardship waivers we have to prove that there would be extreme hardship to the qualifying relative/s – in this case the two young American children.

extreme hardship would occur both if the children accompanied the Applicant back to Egypt and also if the children remained in the United States without the Applicant.

We affirmed that the second scenario was not a possibility in this case as the children could not remain in the United States without the parents and Applicant’s wife, the mother, who was a J2 Visa dependent also subject to the home residency requirement. Here at The Ranchod Law Group we have successfully tackled many cases similar to this with young American children and our arguments focus a lot on the country conditions which would inherently result in hardship to an American child living in Egypt for two years.

We have extensive experience and keep up to date in order to make strong arguments on our clients’ behalf.

We also used the children’s medical records to argue exceptional medical hardship.

We are so proud to have helped this family. They are a lovely family and applicant is a brilliant and award winning medical doctor and a researcher specializing in an underrepresented area of medicine in the United States, he will do so much good in the U.S.
