  • 2-year home residency

    I came to US as a student with a J-1 visa in 1997. I got married last year. My wife is a US citizen. However, when my lawyer was filing papers for status adjustment he did not get a waiver for the 2-year home residency requirement on my J-1 Visa. The papers to obtain such waiver are in process. However, I have recently received a response from INS with an appointment to have my fingerprints taken. Will I be able to submit this waiver during this case or do I have to file papers again?

      The waiver can be filed anytime but it should be before the case approval.

          What is considered the case approval? Waiver has been already filed; I have a response from WO. I am just not sure, if I have refile my papers, or I will be able to use this waiver in my current case. If I can use this waiver, should I have it during fingerprints appointment or interview itself?

          Thanks

              Waiver should be filed before Interview/aproval. You can use this waiver in your current case as you still have to go to the process of security check(After finger printing) and Interview.
