Default requesting refund from USCIS

Due to Iceland's volcanic ash my MIL trip has to be postponed. She was on visitor visa. We filed an extension with USCIS and paid $300. She left US as soon as flights started to resume.

USCIS approved her extension 30 days after she left US.

a) Can we seek a refund because this extension has to be filled due to reasons beyond our control

b) In the future how to seek a fee waiver (any tips or advice please).

c) Can we seek fee waiver when we e-file a petition.

Thanks for your help

Ram

You should have asked before filing for an extension or do a search at USCIS Home Page you would have come across the below:
USCIS - Special Situations

I don't know if you can get the fee back since the extension has been approved. Next time, ask when you are not sure.

It is specifically mentioned in the forms and online when you file for any applications that USCIS is unable to process any refunds requested by applicants regardless of an error in the application, withdrawal of application or an error on the USCIS's part. The wordings may not be exactly the same but in a nutshell they are saying "NO REFUNDS!!!"

I noticed it when I applied for EAD online and thought I goofed up the application and see what my options are.

I hope this helps.
