    Question 51 on Form I-601 latest version

    Hello, can anyone advise me on the best approach to answering question 51 on the new Form I601. The question is quite different from the older version.

    See question below:

    "
    Describe in your own words why you believe that you are inadmissible and all the reasons that you believe support your request for a waiver.
    Your statement must explain the acts, convictions and/or medical conditions that make you inadmissible.

    Your statement must indicate when you engaged in the act s that you believe makes you inadmissible, the dates of all convictions or the dates of any medical diagnosis, you must provide this information in Number_51, even if the information is also in the documents that you submit with your application according to the form instructions.

    Your statement must also explain why you believe should be approved as a matter of discretion, with the favorable factors outweighing the unfavorable factors in your case. If your application requires the showing of extreme hardship to a qualifying relative, you must explain the hardship that your qualifying relative has or will experience if you are refused the immigration benefit you are seeking.

    Does it mention attaching extra pages if necessary? If so then I believe they are prompting the Hardship Letter, which must include all of the items they state. I would then put "Please see attached letter" and have petitioner write a brief letter as such. Unless its a huge space how would all of this be addressed. In the simplest case (1 EWI) you might be able to put something like "I am subject to __ bar because of remaining in the US for a period of x after entering without inspection. The letter from my spouse entitled _______ details the hardships he/she would experience should I be refused the immigration benefit I am seeking which include but are not limited to financial, emotional, medical, etc etc".

    Perhaps someone else who has used this particular form can give futher/ better information.

    That's basically what I advised my husband to write. Something to the effect of: I believe I was found to be inadmissible related to a visa overstay. My wife has written a letter explaining the many hardships she faces and would face if she were to move to Morocco, including medical difficulties, lack of work opportunity, lack of educational opportunities, blah blah blah.

    Congrats on your approval and thanks for your advise. I plan on sending my waiver package within 3 weeks. I have been compiling necessary documents and my father has been to the doctors and psychologist as well.
