I do not know why you are not responding, but you are not charged per question, per response, nor per answer. So after I give you my answer, you can continue to ask me questions without additional charge until you are satisfied. I apologize if it is a site issue that you posted and the post did not go through.
If she entered on a J-1 that is NOT subject to 212(e), then she has the following options:
1) Wait for the immigration
reform that comes out. If it is approved the way that they are intending, then she may be able to get Residency if she entered the U.S. early enough.
2) Apply for Asylum (she had to have done this within the 1st year of being in the U.S. unless there is a credible excuse or changed country conditions), Withholding of Removal, Convention Against Torture, or Cancellation of Removal. The first three things are if she fears to return to her home country because she believes that she will be specifically targeted due to her race, religion, nationality, social group or political opinion and that she runs a high risk of great bodily injury, torture, or death as a result. The last, Cancellation, she would have to prove that she has at least 10 years in the U.S. AND she must also prove that if she is deported, a U.S. Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident that depends upon her will suffer exceptional and extremely unusual hardship. This hardship must be something more than emotional separation hardship or financial hardship, so it is difficult to get.
3) If she marries a U.S. Citizen (for love, of course), she could file for Residency without having to leave and the same if she had a U.S. Citizen son or daughter over 21 that petitions for her.
IF her J-1 is subject to 212(e), she would not be eligible for the third option unless she gets a very hard to get waiver. Here is a link:
