Recently I have received several questions about the new N-400 Online application and fee waivers.
Question: Can I apply for citizenship online (N-400) with fee waiver (I-912) or fee reduction (I-942)?
Answer: At this time, you cannot apply for citizenship online if you are using with fee waiver (I-912) or fee reduction (I-942) form.
If you want to apply for citizenship (N-400) with fee waiver (I-912) or fee reduction (I-942) form, you must download these forms from USCIS.gov and mail these forms together to USCIS.
USCIS has advice about how to find low-cost legal services. Check the show notes for links for the forms and legal services.
However, the question about fee waivers reminded me about an interview that I did last year with Citizenship Teacher, Kathy Martin from Beaumont Adult School. She gave a very clear explanation about the difference between fee waivers and fee reduction. In honor of the resolution: NEW YEAR, NEW CITIZEN, I would like to play a short clip from that interview.
