I am currently under a F1 visa, and have been under the J1

Customer Question

I am currently under a F1 visa, and have been under the J1 visa subject to the two year residency rule, which I have not fulfilled yet. I am about to get married to an American citizen who serves in the US Army. Would I be able to get a waiver for the residency rule in order to get the green card, justifying hardship with our separation since my future husband has military obligations and would not be able to move back home with me?

Sorry about the delay. It is feasible to get that waiver but not guaranteed. What other questions do you have for me?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
What are the chances to get the waiver with that justification? Since I'll be a military dependent
Expert:  Guillermo J. Senmartin, Esq. replied 7 months ago.

They don't release statistics, so there is no way that I can give you a percentage chance. I can tell you that it would probably be a higher chance than most being a U.S. military dependent. What else would you like to know?
