GOOD NEWS: USCIS Averts Furlough of Nearly 70% of Workforce!

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that the agency will avert an administrative furlough of more than 13,000 employees, scheduled to begin Aug. 30 as a result of unprecedented spending cuts and a steady increase in daily incoming revenue and receipts.

USCIS expects to be able to maintain operations through the end of the fiscal year 2020. Click here to read the article on their website.

REMINDER: USCIS Filing fees to go up!

Fees are officially going up on October 2nd!  Any application, petition or request postmarked on or after this date must include payment of the new, correct fees. Green card applications will now require separate fees for the work permit and travel permit application, bringing the total initial filing fee up to almost $3,000.

If you’ve been putting off your application, now is the time to file! We will not be able to accept all cases, so if you are looking to file call us at 212-248-7907 to schedule a consultation.
