On October 1st, 2020, a US Federal Court temporarily stopped the nationwide implementation of USCIS’ increase in fees, which was scheduled to become effective starting October 2, 2020.
Applicants still have a chance to save hundreds of dollars in USCIS fees —before the temporary halt is lifted.
To save on USCIS fees:
Complete your N-400 or I-765 Form today
Send your application package to USCIS as soon as possible
These 2 steps allow applicants to take advantage of current USCIS fees before they experience a dramatic increase —which is currently on hold.
Waiting to submit immigration forms will cost applicants hundreds of dollars more once the halt in USCIS fee increases is lifted. USCIS is likely to appeal to the 9th Circuit Court to get the fee increases pushed through.
USCIS Deputy Director of Policy Joseph Edlow issued a response to the temporary block stating that USCIS was “underfunded by millions of dollars each business day the fee rule is enjoined” and that “current fees do not recover the cost of providing adjudication and naturalization services”.
This statement clearly indicates that the USCIS fee increase will come into effect sooner rather than later and makes applying now the only way to secure the current fees.
