If a person applies for a I=601A waiver for his alien wife, does he have to pay the $585 fee of can this be waived? I was informed there are some Forms (like the I-130) where you cannot get a fee waiver?
You have to pay. No fee waivers for this process. This is from USCIS.
Q8. Will USCIS waive the filing fees for provisional unlawful presence waiver applications?
A8. No. Fee waivers generally are available only if the fees for the underlying application are waivable. Currently, fee waivers are not allowed for the Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, which is the basis for the provisional unlawful presence waiver. USCIS, therefore, will not accept fee waiver requests for the Form I-601A, Application for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver. The provisional waiver application fee is $585.00 and the biometrics fee of $85.00.
