October Surprise: USCIS Fee Increases

In August 3, 2020

It’s not really the October surprise but a long time coming. Last year, the agency proposed atrocious fee increases across for various immigration applications, which are now going into effect starting October 2, 2020.

Fees for adjustment of status filings (green cards) would sky-rocket from the current $1760 to around $2900 if persons want interim benefits such as work and travel authorization. Fees for filing for naturalization will increase to $1,170. Due to ongoing litigation, fees for DACA will remain the same, though the program will only do one-year work permit renewals moving forward. A complete list of fee increases is here.

If you and your loved ones will be impacted negatively, we suggest filing your respective applications before this new deadline.
