The USCIS recently proposed fee changes in the Federal Register for all USCIS filing fees. While some of the fees are in fact decreasing slightly, such as the biometrics fee, a few fees are increasing significantly. The hardest-hit are children under 14 years old applying for adjustment of status, who will see the fee increase by $370, and the naturalization filing fee, which is increasing by an unprecedented 83% to $1,170. This would be a $530 increase over the current fee of $640.
The Federal Register is open for public comment on the proposed fee changes until December 16. The dates which the fee changes go into effect have not yet been announced, but could be anytime shortly after December 16th to early 2020. Please follow us on social media to learn as soon as the fee change dates are public.If you are considering applying for an immigration benefit within the next few months, now is a good time to lock in with the current prices and file as soon as possible.
