Possible Immigration Fee Increase and Surcharge

USCIS announced that it will be seeking funding from Congress to help with a budget deficit it is experiencing as a result of a decrease in filings for immigration benefits. USCIS has indicated that to make up for the additional funding being sought from Congress that they intend to add a 10% surcharge to all USCIS filing fees. USCIS had already announced its intent to increase filing fees back in November. Those fee requests have been under public review and have yet to be implemented. It appears inevitable that those fee increases will be implemented soon. Additionally the likelihood that USCIS will begin charging a 10% surcharge on filing fees is extremely high.
