Complete ONE Form I-539 and submit ONE filing fee of $370 per family regardless of the number of H-4 applicants. The filing fee must be paid by a check or money order made payable to “U.S. Department of Homeland Security.”
Complete Form I-539 online, then print the I-539 and have the eldest (Father/Mother) H-4 applicant sign in black pen. If all dependents applying for H-4 status are minors (under the age of 18 years), the H-1B applicant should sign the I-539 in Part 5 “Applicant’s Signature” AND Part 7, “Signature of person preparing form, if other than above”, indicating “Parent of Minor” in the section entitled “Firm Name and Address.”
USCIS published a revised Form I-539 on March 8, 2019 (to be submitted by the primary H-4 applicant) and a new Form I-539A (to be submitted for each H-4 co-applicant). Additionally, USCIS has implemented a biometrics requirement. Each applicant must pay a biometrics services fee of $85 when submitting Form I-539, and if applicable, Form I-539A. Once the forms are accepted by USCIS, the applicant(s) will be given an appointment date and time to appear at a USCIS office closest to their address for a biometrics services appointment.
