Road to Status launches online USCIS fee waiver utility to help immigration benefit applicants save on USCIS application fees.

“Addressing the service gap via our technology is the most efficient way to help people understand their rights and find accessible options. This new tool will allow us to provide the highest value service possible at a low cost.” – John Bauschard, Co-Founder, Road to Status

Today, Road to Status launched a USCIS fee waiver utility that will help immigration benefit applicants determine whether they can avoid paying hundreds of dollars in USCIS application fees. Based on the applicant’s individual situation, some may be eligible for a 100% fee waiver for Citizenship (USCIS Form N-400) and Green Card Renewals (USCIS Form I-90). Today, USCIS charges $725 for application and biometric fees to file for Citizenship. For Green Card renewals, the fees are currently $540.

This first-of-its-kind online tool, with accompanying fee waiver resource center, will provide visitors a safe, easy to use tool to identify the potential for savings. All users are welcome to use the fee waiver eligibility tools, free of charge.

“We’ve heard from thousands of applicants over the past two years, and the most common reason they delay filing their applications is the combined cost of legal services and USCIS filing fees. Very few of them were aware that a government fee waiver program even existed. This utility will help inform our user base and direct them to this underutilized financial relief program. We want everyone to know that immigration benefits are within reach and that securing access to financial help like this does not have to be a difficult process” – John Paul Demirdjian, Chief Operating Officer, Road to Status, LLC

USCIS fees reached all time highs in 2017 and identifying ways to lower the overall cost of applying remains critically important to those who cannot afford to move forward with their desired immigration applications. In 2018, demand for affordable immigration services still far exceeds the supply currently available, and filling that service gap remains a priority for Road to Status and its partner organizations.

Finding actionable information about USCIS fee waivers isn’t easy or obvious. Unless a user knows specifically what to look for, the applicant may not even be aware that relief programs like this exist. The result is that many of the applicants we spoke with became frustrated or confused and simply gave up because they thought the process would be difficult or that they may end up doing a lot of paperwork to find out that they do not qualify after all.

“This process is much more complicated than it needs to be. To fill the gap, we came up with a better way to check your eligibility for a USCIS fee waiver online, for free, and in under 60 seconds. If you are eligible, Road to Status adds the corresponding paperwork to your completed application in real-time. We also include specific filing instructions that were created by immigration attorneys from within our partner network” – Javad Khazaeli, Co-Founder, Road to Status
