My brother in law a Mexican national is married to my sister a US citizen. He had is IV appt last week and was denied because he entered illegally as a minor with his father and stayed past 18 yers (hes 23 now). They gave him an I601 waiver. We are in the process of getting letters from my maternal grandmother an paternal grandfathers doctors who are very ill, my sister also attends the Univerity and are submitting her transcripts. We are also submitting character letters in support of my brother in law. I also wrote our congressmen to inquire on our behalf. Is it difficult to get the I601 waiver approved? He does not have a criminal or drug backround. The thought of my sister moving to Mexico is scary with all that's going on.
It is a difficult process to prove "extreme hardship". I usually wait until the couple have children together.

It is difficult. Please read the Form I-601 instruction which describes types of supporting documents that must be submitted with the waiver application. Also, please go to (http://www.uscis.gov/provisionalwaiver) and read the announcement. This method, if it is implemented, might be less stressful for your sister.
Yes and that's why it's important to have a strong advocate on your side.
The letters you're collecting, while providing a general background about your brother-in-law are missing a key point: the hardships he needs to show are to his qualifying relatives: us citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse or parents.
