Overcome the Two-Year Home Residency Requirement

After completing the J1 program, J-1 visa holders may be subject to the two-year residency requirement, which mandates them to return to their home country for a minimum of two years before they can adjust their status or apply for permanent residency in the United States. However, this requirement can be waived if you can demonstrate that returning to your home country would cause extreme hardship for your U.S. citizen or permanent resident spouse or child. 

At Ranchod Law Group, we recognize both the emotional and logistical challenges that can arise from exceptional hardship and the two-year residency requirement. Our experienced J1 waiver immigration attorneys offer comprehensive guidance throughout the waiver application process and create a detailed legal brief that presents a compelling case demonstrating the necessity of a waiver.

Understanding Exceptional Hardship

In J-1 waiver cases, exceptional hardship refers to extremely difficult circumstances that go beyond the normal challenges and difficulties that your family members may face if you were to separate or they were forced to return to your home country. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to say your family members would miss you, as this would be a normal and expected hardship given the situation. 

Here are some common situations that can qualify as exceptional hardship:

  • Medical hardship: One of your qualifying your immediate family members has a serious medical condition that requires specialized treatment not available in your home country.
  • Safety and security: Certain circumstances in your home country, like political instability, violence, or persecution pose significant risks or harm to your immediate family members. 
  • Family separation: Returning to your home country without your immediate family members would greatly impact their care or well being 
  • Education and career opportunities: Your immediate family members have unique educational or career prospects in the United States that are not available in your home country.
  • Financial hardship: Extreme financial circumstances, such as a lack of economic opportunities or the inability to support your dependents in your home country.
  • Cultural or religious obstacles: Fulfilling the two-year home residency requirement would result in your immediate family experiencing obstacles due to their cultural or religious beliefs. 

Remember, these are just some examples, and your case will be evaluated individually based on your unique circumstances. The hardship your immediate family members face must be strong enough to justify an exemption from the home residency requirement.
