Default Cost for Green Card Processing?

Hi,

Does anyone have an idea on how much an end-to-end processing of a green card process
costs in Northern California? If possible can someone recommend a good and cheap
immigration lawyer?

thanks,

Minh

It all depends on the type of procedure you need to follow I guess. I came in the US
on a K-1 visa. Rough estimation: I paid $800 for all the paperwork, medical exam,
work permit, traveling papers during the wait for my Greencard, etcetera etcetera.

I wouldn't be surprised if an employment based green card will end up being at least
10 times what you paid for K-1. This being said, a green card process isn't something
you'd wanna save money on. It's not an expense, it's an investment.

The usual cost is $7K-$10K or so. I can imagine that there are lots of lawyers in the
Bay Area. Unfortunately, there are more bad than good lawyers around. Even if a good
lawyer costs a bit more, it is usually worth it. Ask a couple of them about the
procedure, have them explain everything, ask friends, etc. Immigration law is
federal, so unless you insist on visiting your lawyers offices, you can hire a lawyer
from anywhere in the US. I have friends who had lawyers several 1000 miles away.

Well, i can give you some numbers:
- health check: 300 USD
- fees for GC process: 300 USD
- plus fees for the required documents of my home country

This is how much it costs me, I have won the GC at the GC-lottery. Hope it gives
you an idea.
