USCIS mistakenly rejects immigration applications due to filing fees. As a result of the confusion regarding the USCIS filing fees increase, some residency applications filed recently were rejected by USCIS personnel, who mistakenly believed the new filing fees had gone into effect. USCIS was scheduled to substantially increase fees on October 2nd, but was prevented from doing so by a federal court. Many rejection notices erroneously included a schedule of the new filing fees which were never in fact formally increased. Rejected applications can be sent back to USCIS to be properly filed.
