USCIS Notification of Preliminary Injunctions Against Fee Rule

USCIS notification of two preliminary injunctions issued in 2020 against the final rule published at 85 FR 46788 on 8/3/20 with an effective date of 10/2/20, which significantly altered the USCIS fee schedule. The notification states that DHS is complying with the terms of these court orders and is not enforcing the regulatory changes set out in the final rule. USCIS will continue to accept the fees that were in place prior to 10/2/20, and follow the guidance in place prior to 10/2/20 to adjudicate fee waiver requests. (86 FR 7493, 1/29/21)
