USCIS grows a HART
A new service center for humanitarian petitioners is being opened by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS).
This new service center is called the Humanitarian, Adjustment, Removing Conditions and Travel Documents (HART) Service Center. It will operate virtually and it is designed to lighten the workload for other USCIS service centers.
The HART center will process the following types of humanitarian petitions:
- Form I-730: Asylee Relative Petitions
- Form I-360: Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) based petitions
- Form I-601A: Application for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver
- Form I-918: Petition for U Nonimmigrant Status, Bona Fide Determination
If the HART center is effective, it will decrease the backlog of requests for humanitarian relief and allow justice to be delivered more swiftly.
USCIS will host a webinar on April 20 to provide an overview of this new service. All stakeholders in the immigration process are invited to attend.
