USCIS Proposes Increase in Petition Filing Fees

US Citizenship and Immigration Services has proposed an increase in filing fees for immigration benefit applications and petitions. While some petition fees would actually be decreased (K-1 fiance petitions would decrease from $455 to $340, for example) or experience only a slight increase (I-129 petitions,
used to sponsor H-1, L-1, and O-1 workers among others, would increase from $320 to $325), in general, the proposal would increase overall fees by a weighted average of about 10 percent. The fee for naturalization applications would not change.
A complete summary of the proposed fee changes is available here.
