简单讲,如果J1 primary的豁免是在离婚前办的,则自动cover作为dependent的J2。如
此,只要拿到一份J1的豁免文件就可以了。但如果离婚之时J1 primary没有办豁免,则
J2需要在离婚后单独提出豁免。不过好像离婚双方能再见还是朋友的不多,在不确定是离
婚前还是离婚后办的情况下,为免麻烦,建议还是直接当需要自己单独提出豁免处理,我
从提出申请到最后拿到豁免也就一个多月。完全DIY的话,也就215刀申请费。
网上这方面的信息不多,更没有详细的DIY流程,只是简单知道只可以用IGA这种方法申
请,后来联系过一些华人律所,发现真正经办过这类case的律师几乎没有,很多都是一
知半解。不想花了钱还办不好事,于是自己做research然后DIY。材料准备得差不多,
先去网上填申请,网址是:
https://j1visawaiverrecommendation.state.gov/
所有J1信息填成J2信息,没有dependent,最后会申请一个文件Packet for J-2
Waiver。当时拿到的case number是没计入系统的,直到DOS收到材料兑现支票后才作数
。不过DOS那个查case status的系统更新很蛮,我9月中拿到waiver的797时网上还是查
不到case的infomation
另外,如果要查J waiver的case,DOS网站上的咨询电话不太好用,直接发邮件到:
f******[email protected]
以下是我的Check List,具体操作请看第二楼:

tell you below in what order each packet is, and where those should be sent.
Packet 1
DOS – (Address: P.O. Box 952137, St. Louis, MO 63195)

以下是我网上找到的一份比较官方的关于divorced J2 independently apply waiver
through IGA的解释:
Dear Ms Lu:
Thank you for your email regarding possible revisions to Form I-612. I have
reviewed your comments and have concluded that no change to Form I-612 is
warranted for the following reasons:
It is true that J-2s must independently satisfy the two year foreign
residence requirement apart from the J-1 principal. If the J-1 principal
receives a waiver, however, then J-2 dependents are also not subject to the
foreign residency requirement. It is not true, however, that J-2s can apply
independently for the waiver, absent exceptional circumstances. In any case,
J-2s cannot apply for hardship or persecution waivers on their own; they
can only benefit as derivatives of J-1s.
Under exceptional circumstances, the Department of State may act as an
interested government agency (IGA) and for humanitarian reasons, request
that the foreign residency requirement be waived on behalf of J-2s who are
either divorced from their J-1 spouse, because their J-1 spouse has died, or
on behalf of J-2 children who have married and/or turned 21. This, however,
is an IGA waiver request from the Department of State and is forwarded to
CIS for final approval. (Please see Department of State Foreign Affairs
Manual, Chapter 9, section 40.202 Certain Former Exchange Visitors for
related statutory and regulatory provisions; and especially 40.202 Notes ,
note 3 at http://foia.state.gov/masterdocs/09fam/0940202N.pdf, see attached; bottom of page 8, top of page 9).
Because applicants who request IGA waivers do not fill out form I-612, there
is no reason for the form to be modified. The recent corrections to form I-
612 clearly indicate that the form is to be used for applicants filing for
persecution and hardship waivers. Those requesting IGA waivers are
instructed to contact the interested agency directly.
I have verified the above information with several officers at DHS US
Citizenship and Immigration Services and at the Department of State Waiver
Review Division.
We appreciate your email and encourage you to continue to submit such
comments in the future.
Sincerely,

您的朋友发信来问了个挺典型的问题,我把我的回答贴出来希望对大家有用:
问:
我想请问一下,suppose离婚以后j2就会失去合法身份,如何能保证j2在waiver下来以
、及转成其他身份之前的合法身份呢?
答:
我当时是回国重新签的F1签证,所以和后来离婚不冲突,不存在身份问题。其实境内就
可以从J2转F1,转的过程也是一种pending的身份,但是如果被移民局拒绝你又已经离
婚的话,身份马上就拉黑了。当然,目前为止没听说过J2转F1被拒的,因为J2本身就是
可以读书,甚至工作的。比较保险的做法是转成F1再离婚,境内转F1可能需要2-3个月
时间,不过不知道实际操作是不是会快一些。
理论上,H1是移民签证,所以要做了豁免才可以J2转H1,但是实际生活中USCIS对H1审
批时没那么严格,有不少case是没拿到豁免就成功转成H1的。
提醒一下,如果你将来要申请绿卡,无论以何种方式,都必须获得豁免。递130之类的
无所谓,但是递485表时有个问题是明确问有没有2年归国服务期限制。我之前一直稀里
糊涂因为排期还得2年没想那么多,直到前两个月排期突然跃进才发现这个坑爹的问题,
幸好材料最后及时补进去。所以分享这些经历,希望可以让xdjm少走弯路,少遇狗血。
我最近大着肚子快due了,之后站内信箱可能会无法check,有问题或者需要帮忙看看
IGA Request Letter之类的可以发邮件到1*********[email protected],我争取至少三五天
去看一眼
