Help needed.... Had a J1 previously, but VISA says No 2 HRR

Hello guys,

I really really need some help, maybe someone had similar experience or knows something that may help me.

I am at the NVC stage of my IR-1/CR-1 (Sent both packages and paid all the fees). My USC husband and I live in Colombia.

I was in the US for over a year with a J1 visa, for neuroscience research, and my VISA says I didn't have a 2-year home residency requirement (Both my VISA and DS-2019 say the same). Nonetheless, my country is listed in the "Special Skills" list, so I was told that they requirement may still apply to me because of that, independent of what my visa says.

I am now thinking of starting the waiver process, but don't know if that could may things worse by putting a big "red-flag" over my head or if I should wait for an advisory opinion (which can take 6 weeks) and then see if I need to start the process

Any opinion or help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much
