What should I talk about, or what dies that mean? I don't understand exactly what INS is asking me. They sent me a letter (in Re: to form I-485) asking me to submit a completed form I-601 application for waiver of grounds of inadmissibility. 15 years ago I had a misdemeanor for 3.5 grams of marijuana, case was disposed.
My I-130 was approved trough marriage.
Even those of us who do nothing but waivers all day every day have a hard time explaining to layperson what "extreme hardship" means because what is and what is not extreme hardship differs from family to family. This is why I-601 waivers are considered to be so complex and why you shouldn't be flying this one solo (not to mention that it's far more than just a simple statement or a simple form).
I recommend that you don't waste time (I'm sure you've been given a limited amount of time to respond) and consult about this with someone who is experienced in waivers. Moreover, are you even sure that a waiver is appropriate/required in your circumstances?
Extreme hardship Waiver from qualifying relatives is an elaborate legal art form without any clearly defined parameters. It is like asking online what to state to write an excellent novel similar to its content and brilliancy to Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer, for instance.
