US Immigration Update (October 1, 2020): The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted the motion for preliminary injunction temporarily halting the implementation of USCIS final fee rule in its entirety and on a nationwide basis. This means that the new fee increases have been STOPPED, at least for now. We will update this webpage with information and guidance on further developments. Please check back frequently.

What happens next?
The Government (USCIS) will likely appeal to the 9th Circuit court to get the fee increases pushed through. However, no one knows when the appeal will happen or what the result of the appeal will be.

What does this mean for you?
No one knows if or when the new fees will be made effective, but as long as the injunction is in place the USCIS cannot raise fees. Taking into consideration that fees could go up for many applications at any time, it's generally a good idea to prepare & file your Green Card or Citizenship applications sooner rather than later.

See the chart below to see the differences in the current vs new fees.

USCIS Form N-600

Proof of Citizenship for U.S. Citizens

If you were born in the United States, you are already a U.S. citizen (unless you were born to parents who were in the United States in a diplomatic capacity for a foreign country). If you were born outside of the United States and either one or both of your parents are or were U.S. citizens (by birth or naturalization), you may already be a U.S. citizen. Check if you qualify

Who is eligible?

You can demonstrate that you are a U.S. citizen through a number of documents:

  • FS-240, Certificate of Birth Abroad
  • U.S. passport
  • U.S. birth certificate
  • Certificate of Naturalization
  • Certificate of Citizenship

If you were born overseas and believe that you are already a U.S. citizen, you can apply to the U.S. Department of State for a U.S. passport. A passport is evidence of citizenship and also serves as a travel document if you need to travel.

If you were previously issued a Certificate of Citizenship or Naturalization and need to obtain a replacement, you should prepare a Form N-565, Application for Replacement Naturalization/Citizenship Document.

What is the difference between an Application for Naturalization (U.S. Citizenship) and an Application for a Certificate of Citizenship?

People who are already U.S. citizens, either by birth or through "automatic citizenship", can request a Certificate of Citizenship to prove their U.S. citizenship and should use Form N-600.

If however, you have never applied for U.S. Citizenship and are a U.S. permanent residents (green card holders) can apply for U.S. citizenship with Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.
