$325 base fee plus a $70 biometric fee if applicant is between 14 and 79 years of age. There is no fee if applicant is filing as a refugee under sec. 209(a) of the INA.
On Monday, July 23, USCIS inadvertently posted on its website a version of Form I-485 that reflected the fee increase which does not take effect until July 30, 2007. USCIS has now posted the correct version of the Form I-485. We regret any confusion this may have caused.
As of July 30, 2007, if you filed a Form I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, no fee is required to file a request for advance parole on Form I-131 and/or employment authorization on Form I-765. You may file the I-131 and I-765 concurrently with your I-485, or you may submit the I-131 and/or I-765 at a later date. If you file Form I-131 and/or I-765 separately, you must also submit a copy of the receipt for your Form I-797C, Notice of Action, as evidence of the filing of an I-485.
Note on Where to File:
Please review the Chart listed in "Related Links," in the upper right corner of this web page, or the Form I-485 instructions available at the bottom of the page, for specific information on where to file your Form I-485.
