Effective at the end of July the fee for the I-130 went from $190 to $355 and hasn't gone up since. Those who got their apps in before the increase will still see higher fees for the DS-230 packet and again 2 years down the road when we file to remove conditions.

It is a lot but if you file a I-129 and the I-130 you don't have to pay a seperate fee. It actually a savings of $5 for those who do both. :)

Plus the fee increase is helping to hire 1500 employees. Once they are trained hopefully that'll get this backlog unjammed and everything moving.

OOOPS, sorry, the fee for the DS230 is $380 total.
