Recommended Posts

o-k for some reason it did not post!

this is my thirs time trying to post this grrr!

ok, i have a quick question. i am about to hand in my application for a I-601 waiver. and wondering if anyone has added a personal statement of their own ( i am the applicant) YES i know its about the USC and the extreme hardship they would face and its not about me, pls dont remind me! but i was wondering if it was any good to include one of my own? - not so much of my extreme hardship, but explaining what happened ( crime of MT) and how i have changed.

has anyone added something of their own?

if so how did u word it? i know each person is different, but i just need something to start off with, as my mind is so blocked from all this preparation.

Jen,

while many immigration-related things can be done without the help of an attorney, the I-601 is not one of them. If you were a very gifted writer, a proof reader with a degree in Political Science, perhaps, I'd be inclined to think otherwise, but the fact that you're even asking a questions whose answer is self-evident, tells me that that's not the case.

simple question, Ive gotten attorney advice- just asking this question thanks..anyone else

Jen,

I submitted two letters from business assoiciates of mine (on company letterheads) that stated my character as it is and NOT was. Also I included a letter from myself explaining my CIMT (exact detail) many years ago, my remorse, and current well being. This was included along with letters from my wife, her family, her doctor, her employer, etc........

Good luck.

Mine went through fine. I'm the USC and we filed like I said on the other thread due to a charge in 1988 of my husband's. I was told to get an attorney, but did submitted it myself instead. Our local field office is extremely nice and that was where it was sent. Our interview officer was extremely helpful when I asked him at the AOS interview how to do this as suggested by him.

My husband did write something himself about his character, remorse, etc. It was approved without any problems.

It might be fine, be brief to the point, collaborate what your husband has said and don't deny it because its in your record. And don't bring up any other issues that would be red flags.

While I would be inclined to say that more is more with the USCIS, send them everything you have and let them throw out what they dont want, one has to be careful with intent letters. If you go overboard you could shoot yourself in the foot with too much information and perhaps making them look closely at things. I dont think it would harm your 601 if you are brief and to the point.
