Use this form to donate toward client costs associated with filing fees and other expenses for intercountry adoptees. NOTE: donations are NOT used to pay any legal fees whatsoever to me. Work for these clients is already pro bono (free), and most of my other work is low bono (significantly reduced cost). Please note that donations are not tax-deductible.
Current Need: My client needs to pay a $1,225 USCIS filing fee to adjust status to a legal permanent resident under a rarely used “registry” provision. It is a complex case but one that holds the best promise to ultimately obtain U.S. citizenship. UPDATE: We’ve raised $1,045 as of February 23 so this is going to happen. THANK YOU!
Prior Met Needs (you all rock): We raised and paid a $725 fee for a client’s naturalization application to become a US citizen. The final interview is now scheduled in a few weeks. Two other clients needed to pay $1,170 each in USCIS filing fees for applying for certificates of citizenship. One received the certificate of citizenship and was then able to secure needed documents and full employment; the other is proceeding toward completion.
