Does one have to pay for the I-485 form? 3 Answers as of April 14, 2015

My mom is an American citizen and I’m not. She applied for my citizenship and already filed the I-130 form. I’m going into my senior year and I need to be able to get a job. Money is tight and I want to know if there is any way we don’t have to pay the fee or if we can do something else? I just want to do the right thing.

You may qualify for a fee waiver from USCIS if your household income is less than 150% of the poverty level.

The right thing would be to come up with the $1070 in order to get a benefit of a lifetime. Work will get you the money; free doesn't work well. That is my 2 cents. Having said that, you should try to see if there is a waiver available for the I-485.
