Here's a start: http://travel.state.gov/waiver_instructions.html,
http://travel.state.gov/j_faq.html, http://travel.state.gov/jvw.html. You need to
figure out the reason that you became obligated to the 2 year home residence
requirement, and then you can figure out your options for obtaining a waiver.

If you are eligible for a "no-objection" waiver, you may be able to do it on your
own. For any other type of waiver, I strongly recommend that you hire an attorney
with experience in the J waiver field.

I am in a similar situation, except my waiver application will most likely involve an
Interested Government Agency (IGA). Does anyone know of any good immigration attorney
with a J experience? And how does one find out whether they are good?

Thanks a lot.

Dmitry.
