i-751 Extreme Hardship Waiver approved. My Evidence

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I was denied the first time due to lack of evidence after my spouse and I divorce. The case took so long before the decision that i could not find any further evidence to refile. So I went the extreme hardship waiver which thankfully was approved and now my card is in production. My evidence included but not limited to:

-Detailed personal statement (8 pages)

Evidence of relatives/persons for whom I am claiming extreme hardship

-Birth Certificate of US born child

-Photos of my family including US born son

-My birth certificate

-Docs related to my US born child

Medical Hardships for me and my son

-Evidence of my medical issue (doctor’s letter)

-Evidence of my daily prescriptions (Prescriptions from doctor and printouts

-Mayo clinic printouts on dangers of my medical issue

-Medical records for my son showing language disorder, asthma and allergies

-Letter from my son’s speech therapist detailing my son’s condition and recommending that he stays here in the country for adequate care

-Proof of my Health insurance coverage that I carry for my son

-Evidence showing that there are very speech therapists in my country making it difficult for my USC son to receive adequate care in US

-List of speech therapists in my country totaling to 19

-Google printouts showing the distance between my home town to the closest speech therapist which is almost 150 miles

-Print out showing how many speech therapists are close to my house in US. There are 23 in my zip code alone with the closes one being 3 miles away.

Financial and professional hardships

-Income tax returns showing my income which is over $100k. (This was to show how much I would suffer if I was returned home)

-Pay statements supporting the above

-Copies of all financial obligations I have in the US which showed what kind of a burden I would live for my wife who is not a citizen and who would be taking care of my son when I am removed. It showed how massive of a responsibility that was since my income was about 70% of the entire family income. This included mortgages, business loans, utility bills, car loans etc

Hardship related to my home country conditions

-Photos of my mums home in comparison to the home I live

-CIA World Factbook for my country showing subpar GDP, Infant mortality and average life expectancy way below that of the US.

-Documents showing unemployment rate in my home country is 45%

-Letters from folks from my country detailing medical hardships and scares

-US dept travel warnings to my country

-newspaper clippings showing only 8% of my country folks can afford mortgages

-newspaper clipping showing corruption in my country’s police force

-Several pages detailing the frequency of terrorist attacks

---and many many more newspaper cutouts of country conditions. Made sure to use the largest newspaper in my home country and sources like New York Times, Reuters, CNN

-Also evidence of good moral conduct.

-Letters form my pastors attesting to my good moral character.

-Letters from members of the community showing how I have been a leader in the community

-Several documents that showed my commitment to the community

Hope this helps someone.

So the reason was I would stand to lose that much if I was returned and I would not have a chance of making even a quarter of that assuming I even find a job.. The CIA fact book showed that the folks in my country make about $2 a day. I was going to suffer financially with such a gap. Also, that is how much I would be taking away from my family hence that would directly affect my son who as you see needs medical attention.

I see! So it's a myth that you have to have low-to-no income for a hardship waiver. Good to know! :)

Thanks...he is now doing much much better. He should be fine in a few months but of course we need to monitor him. His speech is much improved and can now use almost complete sentences coherently..

It seems like you are right behind me. You should get yours in the next day or so...

I was expecting something tomorrow or next Monday but it just came!

All approvals regardless of level of difficulty, are worth celebrating if they take a loooong time! (Because the confidence will take a nose-dive at some point!)
