question is: can my good behavior such being mentor of kid here, volunteer in some organisations partly help me with 601 ? I have just long time ago cr. record from other country..No charge or conviction...nothing, just fingerprints taken..But i see i need 601 with my adj. of status papers..Right?
hard to say what you need without seeing your documents. But to answer your question, when applying for an I-601 waiver, you need to prove hardship to a qualifying relative and not necessarily your good moral character or hardship to you. Having said all of this, I strongly recommend that you speak with an experienced immigration attorney.
A totality of circumstances may help in eliciting a finding of extreme hardship. Be patient in listing every detail and work with an immigration who could guide you through the process. There is no specific definition of extreme hardship but case law points to various factors that could lead to such a finding.
