Our Fee Schedule
Our Fee schedule
We have lost numerous customers due to our fee schedule. Some people think our fees are too low, that we can’t possibly do the service we offer for the price we offer it for. Some of these people have paid over $6000 to attorneys, and did not get the service we offer. We get a lot of business from clients who first hired attorneys who take client’s money, and give lousy service. Their visas are often a mess when we get them.
We base our fees on a rate of $10 per hour, which is a pretty good wage here in the Philippines. (As opposed to $250/hr+ for some attorney’s paralegal to do it) Some cases we spend 10-20 hours on, some others we spend 100 hours on. We flat rate everyone so that it balances out. Here is our fee schedule;
For common visas, such as fiancé, spousal, child, stepchild, parent, widow, etc.
First visa $500
Each additional visa in same petitioning and interviewing at the same time $200
If a co-sponsor is used, add $100 per visa
For each adopted child, add $200
We offer a simple installment plan, half up front, half when the NOA2 approval notice is issued. This co-incides with when the majority of our work is done.
These prices are for complete processing, from start of petition all the way to green card. Most agencies and attorneys will quote you a price to file the petition, or to the embassy interview only, they offer no after visa assistance and will leave you high and dry. Read their fine print, and/or ask them if it includes adjustment of status or green card processing.
That’s it. Compare this to US attorney pricing, which starts around $2000 for a simple K1, (without adjustment of status) and you may see why some people think we can’t possibly be charging enough. Add in the fact that we are right here in the Philippines to help your loved one in their native language, and you will see why nobody can compete with our pricing structure and service.
Thanks for reading!
