Fee Waiver Case Collection

ASISTA is collecting stories where fee waivers for applications related to VAWA self-petitions, U visas, T visas, SIJS and other humanitarian protections have been denied, including motions to reopen/reconsider and appeals.  This is the first in a series of data collection tools ASISTA is releasing to strengthen our advocacy efforts and to demonstrate the numerous systemic barriers that immigrant survivors face created by changes to USCIS policy and practice.

If you have a case in which a survivor was denied a fee waiver related to a humanitarian-based application, please fill out the form here.
