Question EAD Renewal Fee

Hi Guys,

I have a question about EAD Renewal Fee. As far as I know if one has paid EAD Fee in the new Fee structure (Post July 30, 2007) then you do not have to pay the renewal fee. However the I-765 instructions mention the following test on Point 5 under Renewal EAD section on page 7 5. (c)(9) or (c)(16) adjustment applicant who filed for adjustment under the fee structure implemented July 30, 2007. Does that mean that EAD renewal fee will not be waved for candidates who have applied Adjustment of status under nee fee structure?
I have applied adjustment of status under old fee structure, However I has applied my EAD few months after, in the new Fee structure. My actual question is that is the EAD fee waved for candidates who have paid original EAD fee in the new fee structure and Adjustment of status in old fee structure?

Friends please only reply if you know the answer. Please do not speculate. It drags the conversation on and on.

Thank you,

In the new fee structure, I believe that I-485 filing covers the EAD fee and you will not have to pay a separate fee for EAD if you filed your 485 under the new fee structure...Since you filed your 485 under the old fee structure, you might have to pay EAD renewal fee....Thats my opinion....

Default Consider new fee structure

If you have filed your 765 in new fee structure, the fee will be waved for renewal. It does not matter on how you filled you 485 ...

This is my guess...

This is my guess...
When new fee structure was being proposed, it was intended. But nowhere documented. Probably going by written stuff, everytime $340 is required, if I140 fee was paid in old structure.

So unless you see somewhere in USCIS publication, don't assume that fee is waived. If this fee is waived, this is going to be a big news known to most of us.

Angry Called USCIS

Guys I called USCIS. Seems like even if you have paid 485 fee in the old fee structure, even if you have paid EAD fee in the new fee structure you still have to pay the EAD renewal fee. She did not seem to know much but she just read the same exact line form the I-765info document. 5. (c)(9) or (c)(16) adjustment applicant who filed for adjustment under the fee structure implemented July 30, 2007.So even though we saved some money with the old 485 fee, now we will have to pay the new 765 fee ($340) every time we renew our EAD. Happy birth day to all.
