case: EB2, I-485 filed July 2, 2007, I-765 applied concurrently at old fees.
Renewed I-765 at August, 2008 at new fee of $340, valid for 1 year.
Plan to renew again this year (2009).
Q: Do I need to pay the $340?
I-765instr states that, fee is not required for: c9 or c16 Adjustment applicant who filed for adjustment under the fee structure implemented July 30, 2007.
Yes, you need to pay the CIS fee for each EAD and Advance Parole application, if you paid the old 485 fee.
I agree. You are required to pay the $340 renewal fee associated with the I-765. July 2, 2007 applicants didn't get to have their cake and eat it too. You enjoyed the old filing fee. You enjoyed the availability of all visa categories. But... you'll have to pay that renewal fee over and over again until your adjustment gets approved.
