Anyone has hardship apporved in 2018. I have been waiting since 11/2017 Dos is extremely silent 

Power, did your J-1 have govt funding? Does DOS require sponsor views to process your case?

Congratulations! hardshipwaiver!

 

Thanks a lot. I tired everything to contact with DOS and asking for a quick review, emailed them, faxed them, asked my layer and our congressman to help me. Even though my case was not processed that quickly, I used all the methods I can use. Good luck to everyone!

well, actually one person in congressman's office took over my case and sent an inquiry to DOS,  then in a week I got favorable recommendation from DOS. I am not quite sure whether the inquiry worked or not but anyway I assume it might be helpful.

Guys, DOS sent a favorable recommendation. I went to the senator’s office and they sent DOS an email on my behalf. I think this is what helped me a lot. 

 

Good luck!

Below is my timeline. I recommend contacting the congressman/senator for help if your status is pending beyond normal processing time.

Yes, I am a J-1 physician and we don’t need sponsor views. I think it’s  required for full bright scholars.

I am also a J1 physician and my letter of need reached DoS on March 15. Can you suggest how long to wait before contacting senator/congressman?

Hi, based on what I have read on other forums, DOS can take anywhere between 2 weeks to 3 months to process hardship application. If your application is pending past 3 months, you can go ahead and approach the govt for help. If you approach them prematurely, DOS can say your case is still processing given it’s within the “normal processing time”. So I would use it as a Hail Mary when nothing else works.
