I have a Swedish friend who wants to apply for a J1 visa to do an internship program in one the US firms. She is married to a Green card holder (who is going to be a USC in 2012) and they have a baby who is Swedish of course. The question is, can she apply for the J1 visa for her and J2 for the baby and they after the husband becomes a USC petition for them (The mom and the baby) and apply for the Green Card? I have read somewhere on the internet that the J1 visa holder exchange visitor can not apply for a green nor a business visa until after 2 years, is there such a law?
Thanks in advance
