    Hi Jayp,
    It should be fast. I had applied on Feb 20, 2017 and received receipt number on March 16, 2017.
    My lawyer mailed me the number. Did you spoke with your lawyer?

        Do we have to pay for U visa application?. I thought it's free. I mean my lawyer said USCIS waives U visa application fees.

          It is free,if you are told to pay,change your lawyer to one who knows the process or one that isn't willing to rip you off.

            Shelly, that's where I got confused when May2016 says if uscis cashed the check. Mine was free and I knew everyone's is free too. Thanks for info though.

              There are no fees to file a u visa application with USCIS. You can file your application yourself for free. Or if you decide to hire a lawyer, the only fee that you should pay is for your lawyers time and advise to help you file your paperwork properly.

                Wait, is there no fee for any part of the application? From Employment Authorization App to the Visa one to the potential Green Card that would probably arrive in 20 years?

                  There is no fee for U visa application (I-918) & Waiver Application (I-912). But there is fee for Employment Authorization. If you want them to waive fee for I765 than you have to file the waiver along with the application. But the EAD application which you need to file after getting DA is with mandatory fee.

                  Hope that helps.

                  Good Luck

                    How much is the current fee for EAD once DA is received Scorpion? Just so I know what to expect, My application date is close for DA approval.

                      Just make sure you got the receipt letter change your lawyer and you should done with your biometric now. Be prepare that only for work permit you have to wait 4 to 5 years. This U visa already made me crazy and frustrated. I am waiting almost 2 years after my biometric nothing since then.

                            Waiting,

                            After you received DA letter you need to file I 765 again under C 14, but you have option as well for fee waiver for that you need to file I 765 WS and request by simple letter of your financial position, If they found you are eligible for waiver they allow it. bye the way after Dec 23, 2016 they increase fee $410 for EAD under DA. My son already applied on Dec 22, 2016 along with request of fee waiver and they approve fee waived but he is still waiting for EAD.

                            Good Luck

                              Ajay is right. The fees recently changed and not it is 410$. You can get waiver for the fee if you are applying for the EAD under DA (c14). But for renewal you need to pay that amount.
