Important Changes to I-601 Waiver Processing
CLINIC is pleased to announce our updated handbook, Strategies for Naturalizing the Most Vulnerable Applicants: A Guide to Helping Refugees and Immigrants Who Are Elderly, Disabled, Low-Income, Low-Literate, and Limited English Proficient. The handbook, initially released in 2008, has been updated to reflect the latest naturalization policies and procedures. It discusses English exemptions, due consideration, reasonable accommodations, disability waivers, oath waivers, fee waivers, and expedited processing. It also contains approximately 30 links to various references and resources such as USCIS policy guidance and sample letters.
The handbook is available here as a free resource on the CLINIC website.
