New i-485 filing fee for a child under 14 years of age

New US CIS filing fees go into effect on November 23, 2010. The USCIS Fact Sheet does not list the i-485 filing fee for a child under 14 years of age. However, the Federal Register notice announcing the new filing fees indicate that where the child under the age of 14 is applying concurrently with a parent, is a derivative applicant, and is applying based on a relationship to the same individual as the parent, or under the same legal authority as the parent, the new filing fee will be $635. The fee of $985 for an I-485 applies for a child under the age of 14 whose I-485 application is not submitted concurrently with that of the parent, or is not based on derivative status, or is on a basis other than that of a parent.
