AOS Issues Clarified by USCIS Service Center Operations
Posted Jul 20, 2007
©MurthyDotCom
In a July 2, 2007 teleconference, the USCIS Service Center Operations (SCOPS) provided answers to questions regarding the new filing fee schedule and adjustment-of-status (AOS) filing questions posed by the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). This is helpful, as it clarifies important issues, like what the new I-485 filing fees cover, restrictions on interfiling I-140 petitions between spouses in pending I-485 cases, and why filing more than one I-485 (for the same person) should be avoided, as we at the Murthy Law Firm have always recommended. Such teleconferences are conducted bi-weekly to address areas of concern and confusion.

Filing Fees for Forms I-765 and I-131
©MurthyDotCom
The USCIS has confirmed that for Forms I-485, filed after the new filing fees go into effect on July 30, 2007, there will not be a fee for an I-765, Application for Employment Authorization Document (EAD), or an I-131, Application for a Travel Document (Advance Parole). This applies whether the I-765 and I-131 are filed concurrently with the I-485 application or are filed subsequently. In order to accept I-765 and I-131 filings without a fee, the USCIS will review the I-485 receipt notice for the filing date and fee paid to determine whether the I-485 falls under the new or old fee schedule. This "no fee" I-131 or I-765 is ONLY for the those who pay the higher, all-inclusive I-485 fee on or after July 30, 2007.

Default Keep

If I were you, I would keep two envelopes of fees. One with old fee structure and the other one with new fee structure and will keep a covering letter explaining why I kept two and ask them to void whichever they choose not to encash.

But as far as I know the old fee structure holds good for all the eligible July 2007 AOS candidates till Aug 17th 2007.

Default old fees apply

The USCIS memo states the old fees still apply. To play it safe, I would pay the old fees and just attach a copy of the memo if you want.
