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-829, Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions

If you have obtained a green card through entrepreneurship, you will generally have received a conditional permanent residency, and not the standard permanent green card. To remove the conditions from your green card in this situation and to obtain a permanent green card, you must file USCIS Form I-829 (Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions) 90 days before your conditional green card expires. Once you file the form, your green card status will automatically be extended for six months, until the USCIS can make a decision in your case. Your filing receipt for form I-829 will act as proof of your extended status during this period, if you need to travel or prove your status for any reason.
