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.

I-687 (Application for Status as a Temporary Resident Under Section 245A of the Immigration and Nationality Act)

USCIS Form I-687 (Application for Status as a Temporary Resident Under Section 245A of the Immigration and Nationality Act) is unusual in that its purpose has changed over time. Originally, this form was filed by applicants taking part in the legalization program under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) Section 245A, part of the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act. That program was finished in 1988 but the form still continues to be used, largely by applicants who want to apply for benefits under settlement agreements. If you qualify for benefits under a settlement program you may be told to use this form.
