If filing a concurrent application (Form I-130 & I-485), is the applicant still required to pay $85 for biometrics?

Asked about 1 year ago - Stockton, CA

Based on the preceding question, filing of G-325A is required for filing I-130 and doesn't require a "stand alone" fee. It's included in the $420 filing fee. However, filing of I-485 does require a fee of $85 for the biometrics. Can someone please clarify? Thank you.
