I-612 » Our Approach
- For this I-612 Waiver case, we argued that if our client were forced to comply with the home residency requirement there would be extreme hardship to his U.S. citizen spouse and their child both if the U.S. Citizen spouse and child tried to accompany the client to Pakistan and also if the client left for Pakistan by himself to complete his home residency requirement.
- Relocation would result in exceptional hardship because the spouse had student loans which she could not defer to live abroad and her education and licenses here in the U.S. do not qualify her to practice her profession abroad
- She also doesn’t speak the language and we argued Pakistan is not a safe place for U.S. citizens
- We also argued having client complete his home residency requirement alone, leaving his wife and child in the U.S., would also result in exceptional hardship because client contributes to his family financially, as a co-parent, and supports his wife emotionally
We were able to use our extensive knowledge and experience in hardship waivers to build a winning case for our client.
