J1 Waiver (Hardship) for Physicians

I was recommended by Dr. Singh. We both on J1 visas and are both working in the same clinic. You helped her secured her J1 waiver through hardship to her US citizen husband. We both married to US citizens. I spoke to Dr. Singh. After knowing her hardship is merely a financial hardship, you were able to get her case approved. I feel encouraged. I have a child who required medical attention due to a heart defect. She can only get very limited treatments in Pakistan- my home country. My wife is suffering depression and can barely hold a job for a long term. We have student loan and other debts as well. If I to return back to my home country, my wife will not be able to take care of our daughter here by herself. If we all return, my daughter’s condition may get worse and we’ll not be able to pay the debt. Please let me know if you think that I have a good chance to pursue a waiver.

Based on the hardships you have described, medical hardship, psychological hardship and financial hardship, it sounds like you have a very promising case. In some hardship cases, if you have both a US citizen spouse and one or more US citizen children, USCIS seems to be more lenient about proving exceptional hardships. However, in your case it does sound like your family would suffer exceptional, if not extreme, hardship if you were required to return to Pakistan for two years. Contact my office. We will be able to assist you in this matter.
