What if I cannot afford the application cost?
If you have difficulty paying the required filing fees for USCIS, you may be eligible to apply for a “fee waiver.” While neither the law nor USCIS have explicitly said that an applicant under LRIF is eligible to a apply for a fee waiver, assuming the LRIF program is treated as similar programs that enjoy fee waiver eligibility (where public charge grounds of inadmissibility are exempt), LRIF applicants should also be eligible to apply for a fee waiver for both the I-485 application to adjust to lawful permanent residents, as well as for work authorization. This means you provide proof to the government that you cannot pay for the fee and you request to not pay the fee.l
