My wife has become a single parent of three children with her single income it’s not enough keep the house afloat, having to put the house up for rent, my kids are scare that they will have to leave the country, loosing everything we work so hard to earned our life saving gone in a few months, having a lawyer takes a lot of money.

my wife’s mom has cancer taking my wife’s emotional state to critical. There’s days that she’ll call me crying not knowing how to deal with it all my kids have become Harder  to control always fighting with each other. I’m Afraid  the longer My waver takes will take a toll on my family’s wellbeing.

Get a lawyer and have him/her help you with the waiver.  Best of luck.

I second a lawyer...a good presentation of a waiver goes a long way.

 

Re: Cancer. I'd suggest obtaining the oncologist's cancer treatment plan and including precisely how your wife has to care for her (visits, taking her to treatments, etc.). A good lawyer should be able to present this aspect well, but having the documentation ready beforehand is always a plus.

 

Best wishes.

My husband had his waiver approved in May 2015 during his AOS to LPR. We used a lawyer, but I provided our paralegal with a summary of all my arguments and supporting evidence. I created it to help them understand our case- turns out they submitted it to USCIS! Lol.

 

I don't know what your odds are that this will work, but it's certainly possible. One lawyer advised my husband NOT to adjust his status because we didn't have a strong enough waiver case. My husband and I don't have kids or own property, so the lawyer was skeptical. Ours would eventually be approved in one month. Just remember that USCIS only cares about the USCs in your family- so all of your evidence needs to be from their perspective. I obtained notarized affidavits from my aging parents, friends who have known my struggles with mental health, and employers who can attest to the stress of my job.

 

My outline was based on this:

  • Arguments for Why I (USC) Can’t Move to El Salvador
  • Arguments for Why I Can’t Live in the U.S. without Husband
  • Evidence- Health-related
    • Medical records for chronic thyroid condition
    • Counseling records
  • Evidence- Finance
    • Reoccurring expenses
    • Tally of medical expenses
    • Insurance premiums (I am under my husband's health insurance, so I wanted to show the financial impact if I were forced to carry insurance through my employer)
  • Evidence- Education
    • List of valid teaching certificates
  • Evidence- Personal Considerations
    • I’m a sixth-generation American
    • I'm close to my family (all natural-born U.S. citizens)
    • All my family lives out of state (so I'm isolated in my current location)
    • Stressful jobs
  • Evidence- Special Factors
    • My house was burglarized while I was home.
    • Travel advisories for El Salvador.
    • I don’t speak Spanish.

 

Best of luck!


Wishing all of your luck on your immigration journeys.

Very few well presented waivers are refused, may make a difference exactly what is being waived.

 

Some can do it themselves, takes a bit of research and I tend to assume if people are asking basic questions then a Lawyer is needed.


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
