j1visa with restriction married to a US citizen

36 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

iam a j1visa holder with a restriction on it.

i met my husband now before my visa expires but we just got married recently.

i turned in all our paper works to a paralegal and we are currently waiting for the result from a civil surgeon.

i wanted to know if i still need to file a waiver for my 2 yr rule?

and i was thinking to file the paper works by myself since the paralegal is charging us so much....

what are the chances?

im so worried because from what i red on the net is they will deny the adjustment of status cuz i didnt went back home!

i dont wanna leave my husband here for it will be so hard and sad! :(

hope to get answers from u

thanks!

Your Adjustment of Status will be denied if you do not get a waiver for the 2-year Home Residency Requirement first. You absolutely must get a waiver, and get it done before you submit your AOS. If you cannot get a waiver you will have to go home for 2 years.

enen if im married to a us citizen? but the lwyer ive talked to said that it doesnt matter though

That lawyer is incorrect. It's written there on your visa (subject to the home residency requirement). You've got to address that first.

Being married to a US Citizen does not make the 2-year HRR go away. Get a new lawyer who knows the basics.

actually im still here, i got no clue where to go to in my country to have that requirement they need!

If you are talking about the No Objection Statement under number 1, that is only one of 5 options to obtain a waiver. Please read the rest. The No Objection Statement is issued either by the embassy of your country here in the U.S. or by a government agency in your home country (which is sent to the U.S. via the U.S. Embassy there).

You haven't provided enough information for us to help you get such a statement. You'll have to either find an advisor who knows about obtaining a waiver (from your country, if preferable), or do more research on your own.

Start with the agency or branch of government that sponsored or financed your J1 visa. They are the ones that have to agree to the requirement waiver.
