I know several people they filled their application around April and May, still no news. They were not even asked for RFE. When did they ask for RFE? 

They sent me rfe early 09/2018. 15 months after i filed the case.

Thanks for sharing your timeline. What did they ask for RFE? Did they only ask additional evidence or they said the evidence you provided is not enough? I mean I wonder what kind of language they used in the RFE letter? One friend of mine got an RFE and the language they used in the letter was a little bit disappointing. They said the evidence he provided was not enough for the approval of the waiver. So I wonder if they send the same generic letter to everyone or they send different letters to people depends on their case.

Hi All, 

I have just started this painful j-1 waiver process. I know it will be a long journey. My j-1 visa will expire on 5/2020. I will apply for a green card as dependent to my US citizen wife but it will take another 6-8 months on top of j1 waiver time. Could you please advise me how can I run these two process in a best way?
