The Vermont Service Center (VSC) VAWA/U/T Unit, which processes U visa petitions, notified AILA on November 13, 2015, that it will stop processing Form I-918s (the petition for a U visa) because it is currently focused on updating U visa cap numbers. This is a routine process that will not ultimately change whether pending U visa petitions are ultimately approved. I will update my blog when the VSC provides notification that it has resumed processing Form I-918s.
