If you are hoping to obtain a green card and are experiencing extreme hardship, our law firm can help you do it. We have had similar cases where we have had to prove extreme hardships. This past week I was contacted by a potential client and we were discussing a solution for her husband to obtain a Green Card: it was the I-601 Provisional Waiver. The main theme of our conversation was as follows: how can she demonstrate extreme hardship in order for her husband’s waiver to be approved? These were some of my thoughts. Extreme hardships must be demonstrated to the US citizen, not the foreign-born spouse. Some examples of extreme hardship are medical hardship; if someone routinely sees doctors here and needs ongoing treatment, that could be considered medical hardship. If the spouse were to be separated and living in another country or if the US citizen were to be forced to follow them to the other country.

Also, financial hardship could be taken into consideration if the spouse is the primary bread winner. Also, psychological hardship, that was a big factor. Suppose someone has suffered throughout their life, possibly because of prior relationships that were very difficult or a childhood that was very difficult. If the spouse were to be separated from them and stuck abroad that would be extreme psychological hardship. Those are some examples of hardship. There are many others, but those are typical examples. Once extreme hardship can be demonstrated there is a very good possibility that the 601 waivers will be approved, your spouse that came across the border will be able to travel to the US embassy back home, successfully obtain a visa, re-enter the US, and the Green Card comes in the mail.
