I just have one question.
I was an Au pair, been home for one year now, but what im woundering is if the two year rule is for au pairs too??
You should be able to tell if you are subject to the 2 year rule by looking at your previously issued visa. It states on the visa whether or not you are subject to the 2 year requirement. Also, not every J-1 is subject to the two year requirement. The purpose of the J-1 is generally to allow you to travel to the US and train. The purpose of the 2 year requirement is so that you will take your knowledge back to your home country.
The Form DS2019 should show whether you are subject to a two-year home residency requirement. Usually that requirement is associated with J-1 visas where a government directly or indirectly provides some funding. When someone is subject to the two-year rule, it may be possible to get that obligation waived.
