    The Vawa Process goes something like this:
    Notice of Receipt: You should receive an acknowledgement or Notice of Receipt within a few weeks after mailing the I-360 application and fee to USCIS.

    Aliens filing self-petitions who can establish a "prima facie" case are considered "qualified aliens" for the purpose of eligibility for public benefits (Section 501 of the IIRIRA). USCIS reviews each I-360 petition initially to determine whether the alien has addressed each of the eligibility requirements and has provided some supporting evidence. This is called a prima facie determination.

    If USCIS makes a prima facie determination (note that this only addresses the alien's eligibility and is not an out-right approval of the I-360), the self-petitioner will receive a Notice of Prima Facie Determination which has a validity period of 150 days. This NOA may be presented to state and federal agencies that provide public benefits.

    Once, the I-360 self-petition, itself, is approved, the Service may exercise the administrative option of placing the self-petitioner in deferred action, if the self-petitioner does not have legal immigration status in the United States. Deferred action means that the Service will NOT place the alien with unlawful status in removal proceedings. This deferred action validity is 24 months.

    After the Form I-360 has been approved and the alien is placed in deferred action, the alien is also eligible for an Employment Authorization Card. Applicants should indicate that they are seeking employment authorization pursuant to 8 CFR 274a.12(c) (14). The Form I-765 must be filed with a copy of the self-petitioner's INS Form I-360 approval notice.

    If you have only just received a prima facie determination, then how could you have included the approval notice on your I-360?

    Hi,
    I would like to thank you for the emails.

    Yes, I received the prima facia notice, and also they filled together with I360, the I-765 and this one I saw in the web site that was denied. MY I-360 still pending, so I havent the approval notice.

    Based in your info swissnut, I have to get first the approval to my I-360, is that right :

    In this case after are they going to review the I-765 :

    How long usually takes to get the anwser for the Wava petition.

    Do you think since I got the prima facie notice I have good chances on my case

    If I get any kind of public benefits, are this is going to count against me.

    Thank you so much

    you applied for adjustment of status and employment authorization based on what?

    Hopenow,

    Yes, that's right (as far as my understanding goes) the copy of the approved I-360 and the I-765 are to be submitted together, because until the self-petition has been approved, the alien is not eligible for work authorization. As far as how long it will take, I can't say. What I can say is that this area of the INA was provided to assist aliens that are otherwise unable to help themselves, so I believe that USCIS recognises the need to make a determination quickly so that the alien can be self-sufficient.

    That said, however, in the interim, while the alien is awaiting approval of the I-360, the purpose of the prima facie declaration is so that the alien can avail him/herself of benefits. So, to answer your question, if you should approach an agency for aid, take your NOA of PF Determination with you, and no, it will not be held against you.

    Hello Hopenow

    The USCIS received my I-360 petition and my 765 on October 9 2007 and I received the denial of my work permit on january.
    Since our cases are similar, could you let me know if you have any news about your case ?
    thank you,
