You generally submit Form I-912 when requesting a fee waiver instead of enclosing the required payment for possessing immigration paperwork, according to Nolo. If you are filing more than one application or petition at the same time, only one Form I-912 is necessary. However, ensure that you list all of the different petitions or applications you're submitting on Line 5 of Form I-912. If you file another application or petition at a later date, submit another Form I-912.

When filling out Section 3 of Form I-912, you automatically qualify for a fee waiver if you can prove you receive a Means-Tested benefit. Your income should be at or below 150 percent of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. If you are certain you qualify, check the box that best describes the reason you qualify, and note that the form allows you to check more than one box. The form explains the rest of the sections that you need to fill out, but if there's a section that does not apply to you, simply write "N/A" in the answer area, as Nolo explains.
