US Immigration Update (October 1, 2020): The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted the motion for preliminary injunction temporarily halting the implementation of USCIS final fee rule in its entirety and on a nationwide basis. This means that the new fee increases have been STOPPED, at least for now. We will update this webpage with information and guidance on further developments. Please check back frequently.

What happens next?
The Government (USCIS) will likely appeal to the 9th Circuit court to get the fee increases pushed through. However, no one knows when the appeal will happen or what the result of the appeal will be.

What does this mean for you?
No one knows if or when the new fees will be made effective, but as long as the injunction is in place the USCIS cannot raise fees. Taking into consideration that fees could go up for many applications at any time, it's generally a good idea to prepare & file your Green Card or Citizenship applications sooner rather than later.

See the chart below to see the differences in the current vs new fees.

Application Support Center Locations

Application Support Centers offer fingerprinting services after filing an application for an immigration benefit. Applications cannot be filed directly at an ASC. Customers are notified about their ASC appointments by mail. If circumstances warrant, appointments may be rescheduled by following the instructions on the appointment notice. Information services are not available at an ASC. Usually an ASC schedules an appointment for a customer, but there are certain cases when customers can schedule their own appointments. To do this, customers need to follow the instructions on the USCIS form or notice that they receive.
