J-1 Waiver: Marriage to a U.S. Citizen


Recommended Posts


My girlfriend is a medical doctor student and will be starting her fellowship next year. She is from a very unstable country in middle east and she is on J-1 Visa which after her graduation has to be physically present in her home country for two years.

We decided to get married but I cannot go with her as it’s not safe for an American to live there due to the intense and tough situation exists in that coutnry. Also, I have an eight-year-old daughter with shared custody and have to be here to take care of her.

I really appreciate if you can let me know the possibility and how to wave my girlfriend’s j1 visa.
