  1. Hello, My question is for those who have experience with applying for permanent residency while completing the foreign residency requirement of J-1 visa (212(e) does apply). My spouse is currently in her home country of Ukraine waiting for the 2 years to be complete (about 3 months left). We have obtained i130 and paid the fees. The next step is DS260, which asks whether the petitioner has fulfilled the foreign residency requirement. Will they deny our application if we submit it and answer that we have not yet fulfilled the 2 year home residency, but we only have 80 days left? Considering the processing time, my spouse will be done with 2 YR by the date of the interview. In other words, while we have full intention of completing the 2 years, we also don't want to lose additional time because of processing? I would really appreciate any advice. Mark
