Comment Period Re-opened on Proposed Fee Waiver Rule Change
USCIS is proposing to eliminate the use of a means-tested public benefit in receiving a fee waiver. This change would affect nearly 245,000 immigrants who apply each year for the fee waiver. (Note: Fee waivers are available when applying for naturalization and a whole host of other applications for immigration benefits). If implemented, these changes would make the process for applying for a fee waiver more burdensome and dramatically affect the ability of low-income applicants to obtain fee waivers, as providing such evidence is the most commonly used approach by applicants. The comment deadline is May 6, 2019.
