The Trump Administration is going to increase U.S. immigration filing fees and, unless there is new litigation, the new fees will go into effect on October 2nd. Some of the increases are significant and you are encouraged to file petitions as soon as possible to avoid the higher fees.
There were over seventy (70) petitions listed in the August 3rd Federal Register notice. The overall average increase is twenty percent (20%) but the fees for seventeen petitions will more than double and two petitions will increase by more than five hundred percent (500%).
The petitions used by most immigrants when they become Legal Resident or Green cardholders and then naturalize to become U.S. citizens are going to cost more. Here is a sample:
I-130 Alien Relative Petition Fee increases by 5% from $535 to $560;
I-751 Remove Conditions increases on 28% from $595 to $760;
N-400 Naturalization Fee increases on 83% from $640 to $1170;
I-765 Employment increases by 34% from $410 to $550.
