When applying for a reduced fee with Form I-942, applicants may encounter specific needs such as disability accommodations or language translation assistance. These are evaluated on a case-by-case basis to ensure that every individual has equitable access to the application process.
Applicants with disabilities may request accommodations to ensure the request for a reduced fee does not present undue hardship. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) works to make reasonable adjustments for individuals with a wide range of disabilities. For instance, an applicant may submit a separate sheet of paper along with Form I-942 detailing the specific modifications required for their disability.
Language Translation Assistance
USCIS does not directly provide translation services for Form I-942 but acknowledges the necessity for non-English speakers to accurately complete the form. Applicants may seek assistance from certified translators to ensure the integrity of the information provided. Accurate translation is crucial, as any errors due to language misunderstanding could affect the outcome of the reduced fee request.
Addressing and Mailing the Payment
The payment and accompanying documents should be sent to the address listed on the specific USCIS form instructions that the applicant is submitting. It is critical that they use the correct mailing address, which may differ depending on whether they are using the United States Postal Service (USPS) or a courier service such as UPS, FedEx, or DHL. Ensure that the address is clear and legible, with the correct postage, to prevent misrouting or return of the mail.
