The cost of immigration legal services will depend on what particular services you are seeking. When hiring an immigration lawyer, you may have prices that range from $300 to $15,000. Your fees will depend on your case. For example, if you are fighting deportation, you may have to pay much more than if you are applying for a work visa. Costs for immigration legal services will also depend on the amount of experience the attorney has, the resources the attorney may use, and the size of the law firm.

With the cost of immigration and naturalization services in mind, you may also consider the price of documents that will need to be sent into the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the U.S. Department of State (DOS), or other potential costs for documents. When filing for an immigration visa, non-immigration visa, or are in need of immigration law services, there are filing costs that will need to be paid. Petition fees also depend on what type of visa you are applying for. Other fees may include biometrics, government fees, passport and documentation costs, and more.

Though the price of hiring an attorney for immigration and naturalization services may be costly, seeking the help, advice, and immigration legal services from an attorney can and will benefit you. Visa cases, no matter the proceedings, are complicated and detailed. Rarely are immigration cases simple, and it can be easy to get lost in the paperwork. One missed signature can result in a green card denial.
