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

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.

  1. $420 for the I-130 and $1070 for I-485 if biometrics required (ages 14-79 require it, if not in this age group, then I-485 fees are $985. Good luck with the application.

  2. For the I-485 you need to file a fee of $1070 so your application will be accepted. It is best to consult an immigration attorney.

  3. The $1070 filing fee for the I-485 includes $85 for biometrics.
