Do I type it out on personal letterhead? What are the most convincing "extreme hardship" situations that immigration is looking for? Are there particular words to use or not use? I have a 20 yr old successful business I would have to give up if he wasn't granted a permanent visa. Is that enough? We were married 6 yrs ago and have lived in the US together since. He is now stuck in Mexico City since his visa was not approved in Juarez, Mexico about 10 days ago. He won't be able to return for a second interview until I do this I-601 form.
The best way is to hire an experienced attorney to handle the case. I-601s are complex. They involve much more than simply filling out the I-601 form.
J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
I agree with the previous attorney. Although you may be in a tight financial situation, it is most certainly better to hire an experienced attorney who can be you (and your husband's) advocate in this situation.
Hire a good immigration lawyer to do the work. That will improve your chance for success.
