    Answered . I agree with my colleague. The fee for I-130 is $420. Did you also filed I-485? If so, then you also need to pay for $1,070. The separate checks should be payable to US Department of Homeland Security.

    Read the form instruction and see if you skipped any questions on the form. Then I would go over the forms line by line.

    If you think my answer was helpful, please mark as helpful for courtesy. It also encourgaes me and other lawyers to answer your questions.
