Immigration Lawyer Fees

There are a few different types of immigration lawyer fees that you may encounter when working with an immigration lawyer. The first type of fee is the consultation fee. This is a fee that is charged for the initial meeting with the lawyer. The second type of fee is the attorney fee, which is a fee that is charged for representation in court or for other legal services. The third type of fee is the filing fee, which is a fee that is charged by the USCIS for certain types of applications.

It is important to be aware of all of these fees before you begin working with an immigration lawyer. This will help you to plan for the overall cost of your immigration process. Be sure to ask your lawyer about any additional fees that may apply.

The filing fees are due upon signing the retainer agreement with Green Card Link prior to rendering the services and the USCIS filing fees are due upon submitting the applications to USCIS.

Some services have a set fee, while others may have a range of prices depending on the complexity of the case and the time frame involved. In some cases, fees may vary depending on the client’s individual circumstances.

It’s important to weigh all the costs when considering whether or not to pursue an immigration case. Apart from the monetary expenses, there are also emotional factors to consider. Green Card Link can’t guarantee that your case will be approved, but we will do everything in our power to submit the proper paperwork and follow up with requests for evidence.
