Attorney’s Fees and Filing Fees

Fees for PERM labor certification applications include attorney’s fees and filing fees. Filing fees are charges set by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to cover, among other things, the costs of adjudicating petitions. (Note that the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) does not charge filing fees for PERM petitions.) Attorney's fees are fees charged by the law firm for professional services rendered.

The cost of entrusting an attorney to handle your case depends on the expertise and experience of the attorney, on the one hand, and the nature of your specific case, on the other. Fees our firm charges range in price as a function of the complexity of issues or length of process time and work involved. During a free consultation on your potential case with an experienced immigration attorney at Zhang & Associates, you will be provided a quote on the attorney’s fees that would be assessed.
