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.

Who is Immigration Direct?

Since 2007, we’ve helped over 100,000 immigrants in both English & Spanish navigate the complex process of applying for Green Cards, Green Card Renewals, Citizenship, Employment Authorization, Fiancee Visa, DACA and much more. Just like how TurboTax helps people file taxes, Immigration Direct helps users fill out and submit their immigration application.

Does Immigration Direct have a Guarantee?

Every Immigration Direct application comes with our 100% money back guarantee. We’ll refund you 100% money back AND reimburse your government fees if for any reason you don’t get approved.

Does the U.S.C.I.S. have a refund policy?

No, in fact, USCIS filing fees are FINAL and NON-REFUNDABLE. That is why our service was built, to ensure people prepare and complete their applications the first time. In 2019, USCIS denied 873,383 applications.

Why should I use Immigration Direct?

  1. Simple & Easy. Don’t get lost in reading pages of confusing instructions! Each immigration application has a set number of questions. On top of that, each application is accompanied by a set of pages full of instructions. We make the process simple.
  2. When using Immigration Direct, you don’t need to figure out what questions are mandatory or not. While you complete your application, our software is working on the background to select which questions to ask you and which are not required for you.

  3. Avoid costly mistakes! Did you know any mistake you make can lead to a delay in processing your application ? Did you know this delay may be well over a year ? An incomplete application can mean going back to the end of the line and having to wait that time again for a new application.

Here are some USCIS official stats about the 2019 fiscal year:

  • The USCIS denial rate was as high as 45% for some forms
  • 23% of the U.S. Citizenship applications were denied
  • 44,327 Green card Renewals were denied

Don’t let this happen to you! Use Immigration Direct.

  1. Print Ready Application. In certain cases, you may need to add more forms to your application. Unless you know this, you may be submitting an incomplete application to the government. Our website generates all the forms you need for the benefit you are seeking. You won’t see it happening while you’re filling out the application. You’ll just answer questions as you go along.
