On April 6, 2021, ASISTA hosted a listening session with USCIS representatives regarding recent trends and issues with fee waiver adjudications related to survivor-based protections including VAWA self-petitions, U and T visa relief. The notes from that listening session can be found below.
If you continue to face additional problems with fee waiver adjudications, please use this case summary sheet to document the case. If you’d like for us to raise these new examples with USCIS, please use this case summary sheet along with the requested documentation and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject. “Fee Waiver Denial”
