Fee Waiver Form for Asylees & Refugees
Purpose and Use of the Form
This form was created by Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) in August 2007 and is based on previous forms created by the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, and CLINIC.
Currently, there is no official U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) fee waiver application form, and USCIS fee waiver policy is discretionary, with considerable variation among different offices in terms of the amount and types of evidence required for a fee waiver. CLINIC has attempted to create a form that is comprehensive in the information provided, based on the 3/4/04 USCIS fee waiver policy guidance.
Local agencies can use this form as given, or adapt it based on their experience with their local or regional USCIS office. Based on their experience, agencies may wish to eliminate information in this form that is not typically required by their USCIS office.
