In less than two months, an exorbitant fee increase for some of the most common immigration procedures in America will go into effect in an attempt to solve a budget crisis with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Here is a list of the immigration forms that will be affected as of October 2

 Form N-400, Application for  U.S. citizenship through naturalization will increase from $640 to $1,160 if filed online, or $ 1,170 in paper filing. Remember, you also must apply for biometrics, which is an additional $85. So, the final total will be $1,245. Percentage change: 83% (81%).

We have a rich heritage of innovators, entrepreneurs and inventors from all over the world who have built a legacy right here in America.

Before immigrants become priced out of the immigration adjustment process using a new and improved wealth test (fee hikes), the HOLA America Series is launching an Ultimate Citizenship Boot Camp that will fast track green card holders toward citizenship.

In a 30-day boot camp, the Ultimate Citizenship Guide will host live video workshops including the following:
