  1. You don't provide enough information to answer your question such as what, if any, family connections you have in the us and whether your J had a 2-year home residency requirement.

    You should speak to an attorney in detail about your case, but your options are likely very limited since you cannot change status to another non-immigrant visa and you don't seem to have a family-based connection.
