Pre-Approved Waiver Program Expanded to Include More Relatives
November 21, 2014

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has been directed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to implement several changes to make it easier for the 8 million Lawful Permanent Residents to obtain citizenship. The changes include allowing residents to pay the naturalization and biometrics fees with a credit card. In addition, USCIS is directed to study the possibility of providing a partial waiver that would cover at least half the fees for low income residents. This is in addition to the full waiver for residents whose income is no greater than 150% of the federal poverty level that already exists.

If you are a Lawful Permanent Resident and are interested in becoming a U.S. citizen you should contact our office today. All cases are unique so you should schedule a low-cost consultation to meet with a licensed attorney to discuss your case.
