Posted by Christopher Keen | Jan 16, 2024 | 0 Comments

 USCIS recently announced they will raise the filing fees associated with submitting immigration forms. This new policy would raise the filing fees for various petitions significantly. The exact amounts have not been revealed. Different processes will go up by different amounts. It is anticipated the fees in some cases will more than double.  

This will occur on April 1, 2024.  This means that any filings you wish to submit must be completed by the end of March. The last business day in March is the 29th. 

If you, or someone you know, need to process immigration benefits and would like to avoid paying the higher fees, please set up a consultation soon to allow us time to complete the matter before the government fees go up.

Sworn To Advocate For Our Clients

“My father was a U.S. citizen, but I was born in another country.” Everyone in the government kept telling me I didn’t belong in the U.S., that I should give up and go “home” to the U.K. Immigration kept trying to get rid of me, and even issued a deportation order. Luckily, I found Keen Law Offices. Mr. Keen was the only person who believed I was a citizen; he fought my case, and after a long battle, Immigration gave in. They even issued me a certificate stating that I was a U.S. citizen since birth!”
