Hi guys, I'm a little bit confused about the filing fees and how much money do I send on the check for the concurrent filing (I-130/I-485). 1 for the I-130 ($355) and 2 for the I-485 ($930 check in payment of the I-485 and $80 for biometrics, total 1010). What about I-131 wich costs $305 and the I-765 that costs $340????

I'd really apreciate your help since I'm filling on wednesday, I'm on F-1 status right now that will expire on saturday, dont have much time.

Thank you!!!!

The $1010 includes the I-765 and I-131. Those are optional interim benefits of the I-485, so whether you file them or not, the fee is still $1010.

Just send 2 checks. One for the I-130 and one for the I-485.

great help thanks! Now one more question, I was reading the instructions on how to file for EAD that I'm already including in the I-485 package and it says that I need to send this this other itmes:

- Copy of evidence of admission such as an I-94 (front/back), passport, and K-3 Visa. Use as many of these as possible (I-94 is required); including a copy of the K-3 is recommended. Make clear copies.

3b.

-Two passport-type photo's (see specification)

Do i need to do that, I'm already sending that anyways on the I-485, i have to do it twice?

yes even though you are sending them together, you have to treat each application as it's own and follow the instructions and requirements for each separate application

ETA - for example you need 2 passport style photos for the I485, 2 for the ead and 2 for the ap if you are applying for that.

i hope that makes sense

It does make sense, would you recommend send i-130 and i-485 in different envelopes each one with different cover letters? or put it all together?

We sent my husband's all together with 1 cover letter that indicated everything in the packet.

I kind of broke it down like an outline form with each of the 3 applications as headings in bold and then under each heading, listed the supporting documents included with each.

Can you file so close to your visa expiring? My girls visa expires in two weeks and I am worried about time trying to file in a day or two.
