If you have adopted or are adopting internationally, you may have heard about the fee increased the USCIS is implementing starting December 23, 2016.
On December 23, 2016 the USCIS is raising the fees for obtaining a Certificate of Citizenship and submitting I-600/600A and I-800/800A applications. The Certificate of Citizenship fee is going up by $620, and the I-600/600A & I-800/800A are each going up by $55.
If you have been putting off submitting your child's Certificate of Citizenship application or are close to being able to submit your I-600/600A or I-800/800A applications, you must submit & have them postmarked by December 23 to avoid paying the higher fees. This is especially important for the Certificate of Citizenship, and the fee is more than doubling. It is important for your child to have a Certificate of Citizenship in th future.
See the USCIS website for more information.
