There is no limit to how many times you can apply for an extreme hardship waiver, and a lot of times when we see people who have had their applications denied previously, it’s because they have essentially gone online or listened to a neighbor who says, “This is what I did to apply for the waiver, and here are the kind of documents I submitted.” When they do that, they don’t always look at all of their hardship.
What we do differently, is to sit down with them and essentially go through their entire lives and find out what are the various forms hardships that they may explain. For example,
- Do they have a financial hardship?
- Do they have emotional hardship?
- Is there psychological hardship?
- Is there a physical hardship?
- Does one of them have a physical disability or a medical impairment
- Do they have to take medicine?
- Do they have access to medicine abroad?
- If they have children, will the children suffer?
- Have they ever been outside of the United States?
- Have they ever lived in that other country?
- How will the parents deal with their children if their children are now separated from their other family members?
These are some of the questions that our office will look at and try to help analyze, and then work with the clients to develop and figure out what types of documents or evidence that may be submitted to support their waiver application the second time.
