Physicians seeking a permanent employment opportunity in the United States and employers seeking to sponsor a physician for lawful permanent residency based on permanent employment in the United States must go through a multi-step process.

Foreign nationals and employers must determine whether the foreign national is eligible for lawful permanent residency under one of several, acceptable paths to lawful permanent residency.

J-1 Waiver Based on Exceptional Hardship Upon a U.S. Citizen Child

We filed an application seeking a waiver of the foreign residence requirement for our client based on exceptional hardship upon the client’s U.S. citizen child.  We argued that the minor child would suffer extreme hardship if he were forced to leave the U.S. with his mother to fulfill the two-year home residency requirement because of a serious medical condition, for which treatment was not readily available in the applicant’s home country.  We provided ample supporting documentation in this regard.

Comment: 
First of all thanks to Mr. Rajiv Khanna for finding time for me and many others for free consulatation. I am from India and I went to USA in the year 2006 and 2009 on J1 visa. Currently I am in Italy and I have to start the J1 waiver process. As there is not enough information avialable for people like me who are neither in USA nor in India at the time of applying for J1 waiver. So I consulted Mr. Khanna and he told me that the Indian consulate in Italy should be contacted first and they should attest the documents. He is right because you can not send your original passport  to anywhere else other than government offices in the country you are living in. Once I ge the attestation done, I will send the documents to India to obtain clearance from the three departments. I told Mr. Khanna that this is like a social service what he is doing because my experience with the other lawyers of Indian origin is not so pleasant. Bye
