  1. I have not seen my fiancé for 3 years now due to Covid-19 restrictions. Would it be a reason to waive this requirement? My fiancé lives in China. We miss each other very much. Now the countries are opening for travel but the flights to and from China is still difficult and airfare is sky high. We have seen each other since June 2017. She visited me several times in the U.S with her 10 year U.S visa and I visited her in China several times with my 10 year Chinese visa. So I have all the evidence of relationship. I hope Covid-19 pandemic restrictions are the reason for hardship.
  2. Hiii everyone. Pending decisions after an interview is so stressful so I thought why not post here and share this with you guys. So I have recently interviewed (12 days ago) for i751 divorce waiver based on good faith marriage. My lawyer was present via telephone and we added Abuse (mental cruelty) + hardship waiver while I was there. My interview experience was alright but my lawyer told me ‘I gave A LOT of info’ as I went into the detail of why it ended. My emotions do overtake me when I explain that as it was an extremely hard time for me. The office heard me out and just asked basic questions for verification purposes and said how they will mail me or my lawyer if they need anything from me and will get back to us in 1-2 weeks as they need to review the case. I read an expert mention here to a post how adding a ‘hardship’ waiver can be problematic. My attorney is good so I would like to think they know what they’re doing. Anybody here have any idea how long they take to respond after an interview? Also does anyone know what’s going on with their online and automated phone response as it’s stuck on ‘my case is ready to be scheduled for an interview’ even though I have completed the interview.
  3. Hello, We are currently completing the I-601 Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility ourselves without a lawyer. We are filing as a US citizen for my mother as an immediate relative immigration visa. She was denied her visa due to 212(a)(6)(E)(i) smuggling her first born son to the US over 30 years ago. We are completing the i-601 waiver form and seeking a waiver under INA Section 212(D)(11). Part 5 of the I-601 form is asking for information about a qualifying relative and also for a statement of extreme hardship; however, INA Section 212(D)(11) doesn't mention the need to show extreme hardship to a qualifying relative as it does for other waivers (below is the language for the waiver). Has anyone had experience with this and provide some help on how to complete these specific sections of the form? Is a qualifying relative required? Do we have to document some type of "extreme hardship" for this type of waiver request even though the waiver language doesn't mention it? I don't want to leave the areas blank for it to be returned as incomplete but I am not sure what to fill in. Any help would be appreciated! INA 212(D)(11) states that: The Attorney General may, in his discretion for humanitarian purposes, to assure family unity, or when it is otherwise in the public interest, waive application of clause (i) of subsection (a)(6)(E) in the case of any alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence who temporarily proceeded abroad voluntarily and not under an order of removal, and who is otherwise admissible to the United States as a returning resident under section 1181(b) of this title and in the case of an alien seeking admission or adjustment of status as an immediate relative or immigrant under section 1153(a) of this title (other than paragraph (4) thereof), if the alien has encouraged, induced, assisted, abetted, or aided only an individual who at the time of such action was the alien's spouse, parent, son, or daughter (and no other individual) to enter the United States in violation of law.
