Policy Memorandum: Revocation of VAWA-Based Self-Petitions (Forms I-360); AFM Update AD10-49   [open pdf - 63KB]

"This Policy Memorandum (PM) restates the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) revocation policy. [...] A memorandum addressing the revocation of VAWA-based self-petitions was originally issued August 5, 2002. At that time, certain district offices were issuing notices of intent to revoke Form I-360, Petitions for Amerasian, Widow(er), or Special Immigrant, that were approved at the Vermont Service Center (VSC) pursuant to the self-petitioning provisions contained in VAWA. The 2002 memorandum was intended to ensure consistency in the adjudication of VAWA self-petitions, including consistency in revocations of VAWA self-petitions. Accordingly, the VSC was designated as the USCIS [U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services] office with the sole authority to revoke an approved VAWA self-petition. However, district offices have not been following the 2002 memorandum instructions."
