Resubmit with a cover letter stating that there is a fee waiver request which should be adjudicated. However, the waiver will only apply to the I-485. You will still have to pay the fee for the I-130 (double check the instructions). Good luck to you.

You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.

I agree with what has already been stated. You can't get a fee waiver for the I-130 and the I-485 fee can be difficult to get waived.
