Ok guys,

This is said in the step by step guide on VJ and I was wondering if it still applies..."The fee for I-485 applications includes the cost of the I-131 and I-765 (no need to pay for them if filed with or while your I-485 application is pending adjudication)" If the I-765 (EAD) is separate it will cost $380 in addition to the $1070 for AOS...so I'm really hoping this is still true...Also, is there a separate fee from the ds-160 for the visa? Or do I just pay the online ds-160 fee after I get our interview date? Thanks to all in advance!!

The fees for the EAD and AP are waived with a pending AOS application. There are 2 different EADs: one that you can apply with on your K-1 visa (category A-6, valid until I-94 expiration, not renewable, and fee of $380) and one that you apply based on your pending AOS (category C-9, valid for one year, renewable, and no fee).

If you want clarity on the waiver of fees from an official source, you can:

There is no fee for the DS-160. The only fee here is the visa fee.

You ask two very good questions, but ones that are generally asked at different times of the process. I will attempt to give your information in the way that you will encounter them on your immigration.

The folks at the UK Regional Forum have worked hard and have a great K1 guide at the UK Regional Forum: London K1, http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/474161-london-k1-a-complete-guide/

The USCIS site about the I-485 process speaks about fees and the EAD and AP concurrent filing deal: http://www.uscis.gov/i-485

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Ok, thank you so much for your response. I was just confused as to whether or not there were other small fees, not counting posting things to each other and miscellaneous stuff haha I just had to confirm with the Social Security Office near my house about getting that too because I was told there would be a fee with that too!! Lucky for me that was a lie and it doesnt cost anything! (: Anyway thank you so much again!
