Anyone filing this form will need to provide supporting documents to prove that they are eligible for citizenship and pay the required fee. The current filing fee for Form N-600 is $1,170.

There is no fee for members of the U.S. armed forces and veterans but they will have to submit proof of their service. But this fee applies to all those who are applying for a citizenship certificate as an adopted child of a U.S. citizen or as a child of a member of the U.S. armed forces or a veteran.

Applicants need not include a fee for biometrics services along with their application package. If they receive a notification from the USCIS later about their biometrics appointment, they can pay the additional fee for biometrics services.
