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.

FORM I-824 TO REQUEST DUPLICATE APPROVAL NOTICE (I-797)

Form I-824 to replace I-797

When you are approved for a US visa or another US process, you will be mailed an approval notice from the USCIS, proving that your petition has been approved. However, in some cases, you may need more than one approval notice. For example, your visa may allow you to sponsor your immediate family to come to the US and you may need to send your approval notice to a consulate so that your family can join you in the US.

Or, you may be granted an approval notice for one petition and may need to have that notice sent to a consulate so that you can make an additional immigration petition.

If you need more than one approval notice or if you need an approval notice to be sent to a US consulate (other than the one where the original was sent), you must file USCIS Form I-824 (Application for Action on an Approved Application or Petition).
