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.

Immigrant Petition Form I-130 for Family-based Green Card

Immigrant Petition Form I-130 for Family-based Green Card

U.S. immigrant petition Form I-130 is the application U.S. citizens or permanent residents file to sponsor their family members for permanent residency (a green card). To have an approved I-130, you must establish your relationship with each family member you sponsor.

If you are a U.S. citizen, you are eligible to file Form I-130 for your:

  • Spouse
  • Unmarried child (under the age of 21)
  • Unmarried son or daughter (21 or older)
  • Married son or daughter of any age
  • Brother or sister (if you are 21 or older)
  • Father or mother (if you are 21 or older)

If you are a U.S. permanent resident, you are eligible to file Form I-130 for your:

  • Spouse
  • Unmarried child (under the age of 21)
  • Unmarried son or daughter (21 or older)

Form I-130 must be filed regardless of whether or not the family member you are sponsoring is inside or outside the U.S. The processes that follow are different based on your family member's circumstances:

  • If your family member is already inside the U.S. and entered with a valid U.S. visa, then your family member may be able to file Form I-485, Application to Adjust Status, at the same time that you file Form I-130. This is called concurrent filing.
  • If your family member did not enter the U.S. with a valid U.S. visa or is currently living outside the U.S., upon approval of Form I-130, your family member will receive a notice in the mail to apply for an immigrant visa at a U.S. consulate abroad. This is called consular processing.

Our system will help you along the way to ensure that you are filing Form I-130 correctly and following the right process!
