Attention: U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services introduces fee waiver form

For the first time, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is introducing a standardized form for requesting waivers of the fees charged for immigration-benefit processing. Form I-912, Request for Fee Waiver, became available on Nov. 23.

The new form identifies clear requirements for documenting a fee waiver request. The form’s instructions give information on the methodology that USCIS uses to evaluate the requests.

For example, if an applicant can show that he or she is receiving a means-tested benefit and presents evidence to document that claim, then there is no requirement to submit further evidence. USCIS will use the same methodology in reviewing all fee waiver requests, whether the request is submitted on the new Form I-912 or in a written statement generated by the applicant. ♦

    Without having to borrow another Trillion from China, and since we all know that Obama says that our current immigration laws are unenforcable, it’s time that the people assist our LOCAL governments in cleaning up this mess.

    There is no free lunch anymore.

    Read it, Sign it, Pass it on to everyone you know.
