arrowEvidence for fee waiver for i-751

My husband and I are getting his ROC paperwork ready to send in. 


I had been planning to file for a fee waiver on the basis of both our income being below 150% of the poverty level and the USC spouse (me) having Medicaid.  I have tax transcripts for the bona fide relationship part of the i-751, so I can just submit a copy of last year's return for the income requirement.  The problem is the Medicaid.  I spoke to the social worker who manages my case at social services and she printed out a letter I had been sent back in the spring confirming my eligibility for Medi-Cal (California Medi-caid). 


The problem is, when I first got that letter last spring, I called to let her know there had been error, that the letter included my same income and family size from 2014, not 2015.  I had a larger family and more income in 2015, and while I had provided them information on that, they didn't update the letter.  Our income is still below the minimum listed in the letter, but the figures they quote for income (and family size).  My social worker told me not to worry about it, and I had forgotten about it until I reread the letter yesterday and saw that they still hadn't changed it.  So while it shows I have medi-cal, neither the income nor the family size match the information on my tax returns or what I will fill out on the 1-912.


What should I do? 


I could file the request with only the income requirement. 


I could bother the social worker to fix it, but if she hasn't done it since last spring I am guessing it's not a high priority, and I would like to mail the ROC out tomorrow.


I could include the letter and add a letter of my own explaining that the numbers are wrong.  But wouldn't that kind of negate its value as evidence?


Does anyone have any ideas?  How much weight does Medi-Cal for a spouse add?


Thanks in Advance!

Hello helpful VJ members,


My husband and I are getting ready to file removal of conditions for his Green card which expires in January.  We are debating the pros and cons of filing a fee waiver as well because money is a little tight.  We definitely are below the poverty level, and our children and I (USC spouse) use Medi-Cal (California Medicaid). 


The concerns that make me hesitate are two:


1. If I file and they reject, I may perhaps have to pay the higher fee in December when the fees increase, and


2. Could it make them mad or have any negative effect on my husband's residency in the future, or eligibility for citizenship if he decides to naturalize?


I have been searching on here, and haven't found much information about the fee waiver.  It would be really helpful to hear from people who are knowledgeable or have recent experience.  If anyone doesn't want to publish their experience, they can certainly PM me as well.  (I remember there was a case of someone being rude to a person who had requested a fee waiver recently.)


Thank you all very much!

My husband and I have been assigned a date for our interview. Is there anything we should know before going?


Also, if the visa is approved, is it best to fly out of Venezuela (where the interview is) or can we fly out of Colombia? Does it make a difference?

We finally got out interview date in January, but our deadline is December?

What should we do? My fiancé called and asked someone at the embassy, but they said they can't give him any information regarding that. The only person who could was the immigration officer, who is not someone we can talk to!

What do we do?!

Dear All,

Taking in consideration that one of the political promises of Donald Trump was to fight against immigrant, my question is straight forward.  

Is this program still valid? I already got the visa but I have not travelled yet to USA to activate the green card or change my status to Lawful permanent resident.

Does any body say something about this?

I know it is very recent but I have no idea it this process will be affected and the US Government will add restrictions to those who got the diversity visa.
