Attorney’s Fees and Filing Fees for NIW

Filing fees are charges set by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to cover, among other things, the costs of adjudicating immigration applications. Attorney's fees are fees charged by the law firm for professional services rendered.

Initial attorney's fees are due upon submission of your signed retainer agreement. Filing fees are due any time before your application is filed with USCIS. Fees due upon approval (if applicable) are paid when USCIS approves your case. Note that fees range in price as a function of the complexity of issues or length of process, including time and work, involved. Keep in mind that these fees are estimates and that fees may vary depending on the difficulty (or simplicity) and specific facts of an individual case.

Disclaimer: An individual client may be charged at a higher, or lower, fee, depending on the totality of circumstances of the client’s case. Law Firm and Attorneys have the discretion to charge a higher fee or a lower fee for your case. Please ask our attorney for a specific contract.
