USA, Canada / USCIS Filling fees [5]

use a credit card... you would think that would be possible.

Well the USCIS is, to put it mildly, somewhat inept and technologically impaired, so it does not surprise me in the least that you can't pay via credit card. That said, you could always write yourself one of those credit card checks, deposit it in your bank account, and then write the USCIS a check. Yet another option, pay your husband via credit card using paypal and then transfer the money into a bank account. The problem with using paypal is they charge a 3%, or so, fee. However, that's a better alternative then to be in the US with expired paperwork.

USA, Canada / Renewing Polish Passport in US [30]

One thing to keep in mind is that you can always return to Poland on an expired passport and apply there - that's exactly what my wife did this summer. I don't know your current situation, so this might be of no assistance to you, but I'm just throwing it out there for consideration.

USA, Canada / USCIS Filling fees [5]

You could always try to get a fee waiver from the USCIS, although it will delay your processing time as the waiver must be approved first before they look at your I-751. Here's some more info:

USA, Canada / Renewing Polish Passport in US [30]

It's a big pain in the ass to renew your Polish passport in the US. My wife was looking to renew her passport a few months back and the Polish consulate in LA actually required her to show up in person - ridiculous! As a result of the hassle, she decided to visit her parents in Poland and renew her passport there.
