Agreement


The initial attorney's fees are due upon signing the retainer agreement with us. The filing fee is due anytime before the application is filed with USCIS. The fee for the J-1 Waiver is due anytime before the State Department J-1 Visa Waiver Recommendation Application (often called the "Data Sheet") is to be sent for purposes of getting the Waiver Review Number from the State Department. Fees due upon approval (if applicable) are paid when the USCIS approves the case or when the State Department recommends approval of the waiver in a J-1 waiver case. The fees range in price due to the complexity of issues or length of process time and work involved. Keep in mind that these fees are estimates and that fees may vary, depending on the difficulty/simplicity and specific facts of each individual case.
