congratulations on your approval, from what I hear, an approval for a 601 is hard in Manila.

If I may ask, what was the reason for needing a I-601 in the first place?

The only reason I ask is my wife and I may need to do that process for an over stay on her visa.

Yes, its very very hard, but if you can really prepare your waiver well (and getting a good immigration lawyer), just by understanding the prepared hardship letter, you can already gauge your chances. It was a F & M that happened 10 years ago. We followed and supplied all the needed informations to the lawyer just for them to prepare the documentation well. I thought my previous case was the end of all my dreams yet I was still given a second chance to come back to US and start my life all over again. Maybe looking for a good immigration lawyer with proven track record will help you prepare your waiver. It is expensive but it's worth the price......just look at the statistics of those persons who applied for a waiver and get approved.

(I'm going for the IR-1 and blowing off the K-3. Even if it takes an extra couple months, it's worth it to not have to deal with USCIS again)

Note:

Please fill out I-130, wait 6 months for approval, then 3 more months for an interview. (Unless of course we've bombed your country into the stone age, then you qualify for expedited processing.)

Welcome to the USA!!!

Hi leviac! My husband just received his letter stating that his i-601 application was approved!!! He too is in the Philippines. After this letter, what are we to expect next. I've been trying to make some calls, but have had no help :( If you could let me know what happened after you got yours, it'd be a big help! Thank you :)
