USCIS Fee Rule Enjoined and Halted

On September 29, 2020, U.S. District Judge Jeffrey S. White of the Northern District of California granted a preliminary injunction of the “USCIS Fee Schedule & Changes to Certain Other Immigration Benefit Requests Requirements” Final Rule which would have increased USCIS fees by a weighted average increase of 20 percent on October 02, 2020. The court concluded that “universal relief is warranted” and it is “appropriate to stay the effective date of the Final Rule pending resolution of the merits of this case.”.

Hence the USCIS fees will NOT increase on October 02, 2020.
