    How Much are Lawyers for Family Immigration Cases?

    The immigration process in itself can be costly, and you’re probably wondering how much it will cost to get legal assistance. Immigration attorneys use various fee structures. Some may charge per hour, while others may base it on a specific task you need help with. Standard fees usually cover the initial consultation and all succeeding legal services after the first meeting.

    The cost of an immigration lawyer on an hourly basis ranges from $200 to $400. The same rate may apply to the initial consultation that could last up to 45 minutes. A family-based immigration case may cost anywhere from $1,500 to $10,000, which may go up depending on the complexities of the case and the stage.
