This is one of our frequently asked questions that we get on a daily basis. "What are the costs of adjustment of status?"

The USCIS filing fee for the adjustment of status is $1,140 plus an $85 biometrics fee, which gives you a total of $1,225. That includes your USCIS filing when you mail out your petition to the government along with the biometrics fee that you will need to do your fingerprints. In addition, you'll need to pay for a medical exam, which usually costs between $200 and $500.

If you came in on either a student visa, a visa waiver or a visa other than a K1, you do have an additional fee of $535 for the I-130 form that goes along with your adjustment of status.
