Attorney Fees and Filing Fees for Labor Certificate (RIR)

Listed below is a table of our fees for Labor Certification/RIR applications, which consist of attorney's fees and filing fees. Filing fees are fees that are set by the USCIS to cover the cost of its immigration services. Attorney's fees are the fees charged by the firm for professional services rendered.

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. Fees due upon approval (if applicable) are paid when the USCIS approves the 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.
