USCIS Filing Fees Increasing, Forms Changing on April 1, 2024

New filing fee for USCIS benefits effective soon in 2024

On January 31, 2024, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued its Final Fee Schedule Rule, taking effect on April 1, 2024. The new fee schedule impacts several family, humanitarian, and employment-based immigration benefits. USCIS benefits requested with a postmark on or after April 1, 2024, must include the new filing fee amount. We at Ibrahim Law Office encourage any applicant or petitioner seeking an immigration benefit with USCIS to strongly consider filing as soon as possible before a possible fee increase takes effect.

As part of its public announcement, USCIS provided FAQs that include a chart detailing the new fees compared to USCIS’s current fees. These FAQs provide useful and important information about the new fee schedule, such as an informative chart, a summary of the changes, and information about the impact the new rule has on USCIS forms and deadlines.

Within the USCIS Final Fee Rule are several updates to USCIS’s forms. USCIS stated that the agency will post a preview of the Form Changes on its website 30 days before to their effective date. The new forms will take effect on April 1, 2024. USCIS states it will offer a grace period to accept prior editions for most forms through June 3, 2024, as long as the new, correct fee is included in the submission.

Finally, USCIS will use the postmark date of a filing, not the receipt date, to determine whether the correct form version and fees are submitted. This is not to be confused with deadlines, as USCIS shall use the received date to determine whether any regulatory or statutory filing deadlines have been met.

He responds to emails with attention and detail, often on the same day. Don't underestimate that in dealing with any immigration matter.

If Michael were a surgeon, accountant, or another lawyer in any other field. I would want him. You cannot replicate him.." -Yousef S.

    "My wife and I are very thankful for Micheal Ibrahim. Before we hired him, we approached many immigration lawyers over ten years to duplicate documents that were destroyed in a fire. The results were disappointing. Micheal was able to find the lost documents. My wife got her permanent residency. He was always available for us during a stressful time. We would like to thank Michael for his knowledge, professionalism, and expertise. We would definitely recommend Michael for immigration services." -Farzad D.
