Hello,

I have an appointment from Infopass in Detroit friday and I don't know what they can do for me.

I'm trying to apply for a fee waiver (1010,350) since we can't afford paying such amount of money being college students.

1: what can they do overthere?

2: Can I fill out everything and ask them to double check if everything is okay?

3: is it worth the time?

Thank you, please gimme advice because I'm going crazy, I didn't know that it was that stressfull, I just wanted to stay F1 student then apply later :(

Thanks again

Please fill in your Timeline so we can understand your situation better! :yes: Are you now studying in USA on an F1 visa, and you got married? How long is your visa valid? How long have you been married? Are you two living in your mother-in-law's place?

It is good that you have an Infopass appointment, just so you can get solid information from the source.

All I can tell you is I have heard that fee waiver petitions are often denied. The reason is, legal immigration is a long, expensive process. If you cannot even afford the fees, how will you be sufficiently supported? That is their thought.

Best advice would be to try your best to get a co-sponsor, and maybe a loan for the fees that you can slowly pay back. I know that is a very very hard thing to ask, but it will make the process much easier. Like I said, getting the approved fee waiver is nearly impossible, and having the attempt on your record might not look very good.

Wish you all the best! :thumbs:

oh thank you, and sorry I tried to do my timeline but I couldn't, I guess I'm slow :( but for the answer of your question

I'm studying right now in the US with a F1 visa. The visa is expired but I have duration of stay on my i94 card which means I can stay in the US as long as I go to school

Yes I got married last month

She was living in her dorm but since she is pregnant right now she is living with me but her address is still her dorms because you cannot cancel a dorm contract easily.

Thank you
