SF urges eligible people to naturalize before fee hike

Just ahead of the proposed fee increases in immigration applications, some San Francisco officials are urging permanent residents to take the next step and get naturalized.

By October 2nd, 2020 the Trump administration plans to largely eliminate fee waivers and to raise fees for various immigration benefits, including the naturalization fee, which is increasing by more than 80 percent, costing individuals upward of $1,100 to apply.

San Francisco’s Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs and Pathways to Citizenships Initiative have helped nearly 10,000 people successfully file for their U.S. citizenship and they’re pushing for more naturalization applicants considering the current political climate.

    Just file online Type N-400, then print it, make an appointment online for immigration assistance, bring it to the immigration office and have it corrected. They will teach you, correct what you have printed. Just tell the immigration officer that you can not afford to pay a lawyer. It is free. Go home,re-type for final correction. Submit bring your money, they will check again if you fill it correctly, if everything is correct, they will ask you to issue Checks. If it is wrong they will correct it and asked to re-submit again and bring the money next time. Once they accepted your check, in 3-5 days you will receive in the mail the receipt together with the REVIEWER DISC. Listen everyday while driving your car. When ready asked for actual examination.
