I-797C, Notice of Action (Rejection Notice)-check returned for I-765 (EAD), is the fee waived?

San Diego, CA |

Good day! The check issued by my husband for my I-765 was returned by USCIS. The form stated that I submitted the form with extra remittance that is not required to process my application. I submitted I-130, I-485 and I-765 concurrently, this would mean that the fee for I-765 is waived?

I read the instruction and my category is C9, fee is not required if the application is for renewal, but mine is for initial.

Thanks and regards

The I-485 fee of $ 1,0790 includes the fee for the I-765 and i-131.


The fee is waived when you file I-130 and I-485 concurrently with the I-765

If you are filing the I-485 this year, the I-765 and I-131 are included in the I-485 fee as per the form instructions.
