You can certainly send one check or money order to cover the entire mount. However, on occasion the clerks at USCIS make mistakes in math and the applications can be rejected. It is better to send one check or money order for each application.

The answer provided here is general in nature and does not take into account other factors that may need to be reviewed for a more precise answer. You should consult with an immigration attorney before taking any action. The answer here is not intended to create an attorney-client relationship.

If more than one application is filed, I recomend to submit a separate check for each. This will avoid the return of ALL applications should one be found unacceptable.


One check is fine. There is no fee for the G-325A.

I usually write a check for the I-130 filing fee and then combine the I-485 and biometrics fees in another check.

Two (2) checks, one for the I-130 and another for the I-485, both of which have to be made out to the Department of Homeland Security or "DHS'. There is no fee for the G-325s.
