For Now, USCIS Fees Will Not Change

On September 29, 2020, a federal judge granted a preliminary injunction against the proposed immigration fee increases. This means that for the time being, USCIS fees will remain the same. Fee waivers will also remain available.

Future USCIS Fees

The changes in USCIS fees would have gone into effect on October 2, 2020. During the injunction, USCIS will accept current versions of application forms and fees. Meaning, as long as the fee rule is paused, forms and fees will not change.

However, the government can still try to increase the fees and change fee waivers. As of September 30, 2020, they have 60 days to appeal the decision.

Stay informed, and talk to your immigration attorney to make sure you understand your best options.
