Immigration Fees


Make it a priority to ensure that all prospective clients employers and individuals know the associated immigration costs well ahead of time to begin their planning process.

PERM PROCESS
The filing fees are due along with the signed retainer agreement with the Immigration Attorney Firm before services are rendered with the DOL (when HR related) and I-140 filing fees.

For some services, we provide a price range due to the complexity of certain cases and the time discrepancies. Again, fees for some cases may vary depending on the circumstances of that client’s situation.

VARIOUS IMMIGRATION PROCESS:
Apart from the monetary costs, it’s important to evaluate the emotional component involved. We can’t guarantee that your case will be approved but will do everything in our power to submit the proper paperwork, follow-up with requests for evidence, and more. 

Remember that your immigration status is a very serious matter which should be handled by only a qualified and experienced immigration attorney. Our immigration attorney fees are among the most competitive and our customer dedication is exceptional, bar none. Should you have any questions regarding the fees listed below, please don’t hesitate to contact our office to speak with a immigration consultant,  senior paralegal or lawyer.
