USCIS Memo: Revocation of VAWA-Based Self-Petitions

United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) published a memo earlier this year indicating detailing when a Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) self petition can be revoked:  "If an officer in the field receives new information that was not available to the VSC at the time of the approval of a VAWA self-petition, and that new information leads the officer to reasonably believe that a VAWA self-petition should be revoked, the officer must write a memorandum to his or her Supervisory Immigration Service Officer (SISO) explaining why the VAWA self-petition should be reviewed for possible revocation."

We at the Law Offices of Ricky Malik, P.C. is very concerned that this memo will encourage USCIS to look for adverse information in interviews and in other contacts.  Full memo below:

Ricky Malik, Esq.
