How Much Does it Cost to Submit Form I-130?

Article Topics

Filing Form I-130 costs $535 and it can be paid with a check or money order. No matter how you pay, the following two guidelines must be followed:

  1. The payment must come from a bank or financial institution in the United States and be payable in U.S. dollars.
  2. The payment must be made payable to: U.S. Department of Homeland Security. This must be spelled out and cannot be abbreviated.


If you are paying by check, write the full name of the applicant in the memo line followed by the title of the form associated with the payment. For example, “Tom Smith, I-485“.

If you choose to pay by check, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will use your account information on the check to electronically take the money from your account. Typically, the debit will take 24 hours and will show up on your regular account statement.

Please note that you will not receive your original check back. Instead, it will be destroyed and the government will keep a copy of the check on file.

  1. My Name is Mary Jean; I want to share my great encounter with the great spell caster. Its happened When my Husband of eight years walked out of my life for the second time and I had a bad feeling that he was not going to come back to me. We were separated for about two years when I contacted Prophet Abulele. My mom told me that Prophet Abulele helped her lose a ton of weight and that they had love spells that could help me get my Husband back. I contacted him to help me bring back my Husband and I am happy now because my Husband ended up calling me 4 days later after Prophet Abulele have cast the spell, telling me that he needed me back in his life and asking if it was okay for me to come home.
