Filing removal of conditions, one or two checks?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

It's been long since last time I logged in. The wife have been in the country for a while now and it's time to remove the conditions on her greencard. I was ready to write the check and thought I wasn't sure whether I should write two separate checks - one for $505 for the form filling fee and another one for $85, for biometrics - or If I should just write a check for $590 for the total. I know it's probably a detail but you know how it goes, it's always better to get it right the first time.

Thank you all for the help and hope everything is well on your end.

Best,

Chris.

One check is fine.

I wrote one for me and my children which was 1 filing fee and 3 biometric fees. They happily cashed it right away and we had our biometrics appointment not long after.
