Yes.  It is scary and really good to know at the beginning.  I can add naturalization and even the CR-1 costs.  There is a big difference going that route...

$535 - USCIS Filing Fee

$120 - Affidavit of Support Fee

$325 - DS-260 (Visa Application)

$327 - Medical Fee

$220 - USCIS Immigrant Fee

$680 - ROC (if married less than 2 years at POE)

 

$2,207 if married less than 2 years at POE

$1,527 if married more than 2 years at POE

Knowing what I know now, I would have done the CR-1 plus the DCF ...  staying there the 6 months to file DCF would have been a breeze.   Ah hindsight .. it's always 20/20
