    summersurf got a reaction from Marthaeu in How do I prove Extreme Hardship?   
    hello you guys, whoever is applying for waiver.. or wondering how their EXTREME HARDSHIP should be written...i'm gonna tell you here because i've been thru it, my I-601 waiver was approved on SEPT 2008. Before i filed for it, i was just so worried about the Extreme Hardship, but my fiance, then, now is my husband, keep telling me that its gonna be okay because he was the one who is gonna write that Extreme Hardship. So he wrote it, and guess what, it was only half of the page, i asked him to rewrite it but he said i dont need to write it long, i just need to get straight to the points. i was just still doubtful, but guess again, the WAIVER was approved!!!! Well all he said in there was about his parents, explaining that they still needed him in the States, i think what helped the most was the other Statements from his parents, so get the parents or family member to write statements too, it doesnt have to be long and wordy..and actually its not as complicated as i thought...the key is...ask God to make it easier for you because HE WILL, if God wanted your Waiver to be approved then it will, alright? Good luck guys..its gonna be okay, dont get stressed out too much:)

    oh i need to add one more thing, we DID NOT hire a lawyer, save the money to pay for the Waiver fee. You can do it without a lawyer.

    summersurf got a reaction from meadowzephyr in Overstaying a tourist visa   
    Hi Kevin and Crystal,
    I just read your post and i think your case pretty similar with mine. If i may ask how old are you now since you said you returned to Mexico when you were 22?
    Okay so your K-1 (I-129F) already approved and your interview is coming up, if you still within the 10 years ban range (unless you now 32 years old or older), your visa would be denied and you will need to file for waiver.
    I'm sorry that the answers you got kind of confusing, i'm gonna try to help you a little bit based on my experience since i have gotten through this, it was almost 5 years ago though when i filed for the K1 and the waiver but hopefully i could still remember it.
    I also had 10 years ban because i overstayed my tourist visa for 1,5 years. I returned to Indonesia voluntarily, NOT being deported, there is a huge different between these two, because if you leave the US voluntarily then you will only need to file I-601 but if you were deported then you will need to file both I-601 and I-212. So I met my american boyfriend then, now husband, and we started the whole process. Our K1 also approved, just like yours, but at the interview the visa was denied, of course because of my overstaying status. At the interview after they denied my visa, they handed me a paper stating how to file for the waiver.
    So i went home and get all the papers done for my waiver petition, i only needed to apply for the I-601 since i wasnt deported. You can find the form on uscis.gov and read the instruction carefully. 2 things that you MUST have to accompany your waiver petitions are your own statements and the extreme hardship from your fiance/e.
    This statement you're going to write would be your apology to the US government for violating their laws by overstaying the visa. It's like a personal letter. Mine was 6 pages long and hand written because i wanted to make it very personal, i told them EVERYTHING about what i was doing in the US while i was overstaying the visa. From the very beginning i entered the US until i left the country, i didn't leave one single thing out, you need to be really honest in your statements. About how you get into the country, whether you work illegally or not, why you overstay your visa when you already know that would cause you problem, everything.
    And the extreme hardship would be the one your fiance/e write. It also like a statement, apologizing and that you guys are meant to be together and can't leave without each other. But also telling them the reason why he/she needs to remain in the US as his/her homecountry and need to get you to the US with him/her.
    My husband's (then fiance) extreme hardship was only one page, but he got to the point.
    Oh and also the story you tell them in your statement and in your fiance/e extreme hardship MUST BE submitted with the supporting documents, like in my husband's extreme hardship says that he needs to be in the US since his dad has some health problems, so we submiitted all his health records from his doctors. This is just to give you ideas.
    We also have the family members write letters for us, and that would help a lot, i only had my parents in law write for us.
    We did not hire a lawyer at all, it seems hard but you can do it, we waited for another 7 months for the waiver to be approved, and NO you won't bee needing to do the K1 process all over again, once they approved your waiver they will issue you the visa.
    It takes time but i think it depends on which embassy you file it with, hopefully your embassy works quicker.
    Please feel free to write me a personal message if you want to ask more questions, i'll be more than happy to help you.
    Say prayers along the way.. hope this helps, good luck

    summersurf got a reaction from mrs. wife! in PLEASE HELP!!! Want to marry her but she is illegally here!!   
    hello peeps,
    Just tryin to make myself understand here about this OVERSTAYING stuff.
    Alright, the 1st version, so when you come to this country and overstayed your visa for whatever the reason is but DID NOT leave the country, and later say you fell in love with an USC and got married, your OVERSTAYING status will be forgiven, right? (how easy)
    The 2nd version, you come to this country, overstayed, and LEFT the country, either being deported or voluntarily, you will be banned for 3 years or 10 years depend on how long you were overstayed, in other words, not easyly FORGIVEN as the 1st version, gotta get thru harder way to be able to waive your overstaying status IF you ever wanted to come back.
    But isnt the case the same ?? "O-V-E-R-S-T-A-Y"
    Most people might not know about this but hey, say they know and they will just think : lets go to the states and ya know what? dont worry about overstay your visa,as long as we stay in the country, we could just find an USC, marry them and we'll be forgiven....
    OH MY!!! isnt that lame??
    Just seems unfair to me though, well me just sayin.
    Happy day everyone!!
