Concurrent J1 waiver and Green Card application


New Member
Hello I'm a french citizen,

I was in the USA from April 2011 to September 2013 on a J1 visa with a two-year home-country physical presence requirement. I married my wife who's American in April 2013.

We moved to France in September 2013 but we want to go back to the USA. I already submitted my application to USCIS to obtain a waiver for my J1 visa.

My question is can I apply for a green card while my J1 2 years requirement waiver application is under review ?

I just want to speed the process but still want to make sure that I'm not hindering my green card application by doing so.

Thank you so much.
Did you file a concurrent J1 waiver and Green card application? I need to do the same and was wondering at what stage of the waiver application it is safe to do so?
