Can I file, like, a year in advance?

Let's see.... fees for a spouse of native-born USCit to gain citizenship, having followed all procedures and broken no laws: $2500

Fee for someone who illegally entered the US or entered legally with an overstay, and worked here: $5000

Hello?

Seems more like fines than fees.

"Posthumous citizenship is an honorary status commemorating the
bravery and sacrifices of these persons; it does not convey any
benefits under the Immigration and Nationality Act to any relative of
the decedent"

Now, it does say "to any relative of the decedent"

Question: What if I die (they don't find the body), I get posthumous
citizenship ; and I come back - got u . Does the decedent himself
gets benefits under the Immigration and Nationality Act

Gotta love to look at the face of the Post Office lady: "Yep, I would
like to apply for a passport: Here is my certificate of Posthumous
citizenship"

Ah, lovely. An 88% increase for my work permit, and a 79% increase for my advance parole. I've just applied for my fifth EAD and AP; they must love repeat business like mine. It's a great system where people can be delayed indefinitely for no apparent reason and you still charge them for the "privilege". Excuse for my cynicism, but I'm coming up to the 4-year anniversary of my AOS filing!

US citizenship is free if based on service in the U.S. armed forces.

It's time to join the army !!! Oh wait, the way things go it will end
up being a Posthumous citizenship anyway. Shoot

Oh look: They have limited the scope of the Fee waivers: It used to be
possible (provided you are are financially unable to pay) for any
form ; now it is only possible for a limited list of forms.
Take the I-539 for instance: looks like they better have you out-of-
status than in-status with a fee waived

How much does divorce cost?

I guess I'll have to go thru that to be able to file the I-751 before
July 30, 2007. I can still marry my wife again the next day.

Shoot, that's gonna delay the citizenship: the three years marriage
have to be uninterrupted ... nevermind

Did they like create a refugee category for protection against USCIS
fees : refugees don't pay

If not, they should
