Tuesday, September 29th, 2020, in Immigrant Legal Resource Center v. Wolf, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California stayed in its entirety the implementation of the new USCIS fee rule that was to take effect Friday, October 2, 2020. This means that for the time being, USCIS cannot implement new fees or the accompanying forms. This case will continue to be litigated and the Circuit Court of Appeals could, in the future, disagree which would mean that USCIS could implement the significant increased fee schedule. However, until the Court of Appeals makes a decision, the current USCIS fee structure will stay in place and there will not be new forms.
Please contact SPS Immigration if you have questions on how this might impact your case.
