    Default Can My Wife on J-2 Visa Be Allowed to Finish Her Study After My J-1 Visa Expires

    I am on j-1 visa with 2 year HRR. My wife is on j-2 visa and she wants to study masters degree. But she can graduate only after 6 months of my j-1 visa expiry. Can her j-2 visa be extended or can she acquire any other visa to complete her study?

    Her J2 is derivative of your J1, so it ends with your visa. She should talk to an immigration adviser at her college about her options. I expect that she will have to leave the U.S. and reenter on a F1 visa, assuming she qualifies.
