Immigration lawyers represent individuals in matters involving visas, green cards, citizenship, deportation proceedings, and more. The fees for these services will depend on the complexity of the case, and can run from $500 to $1,000 for a simple matter such as a green card renewal, to $7,000 to $15,000 or more for complex asylum petitions or deportation defense.
The immigration attorneys at Bassey Immigration Law Center believe in full transparency when it comes to the cost of our services. Our fees reflect our more than two decades of helping immigrants to qualify for U.S. residency and citizenship and to bring their immigration petitions to a favorable conclusion as quickly and efficiently as possible.

For a customized estimate of how much work on your case is likely to cost you, please reach out for a consultation with the Tampa, Florida immigration lawyers at our firm. Questions you will want to ask a potential lawyer include:
- Does he or she work on an hourly or flat fee basis?
- How long will your case take to reach resolution?
- What complications might arise that would require you to pay higher fees?
Do you need to pay an immigration lawyer to file a petition?
Immigration petitions are complex matters that can be confusing to anyone who is not thoroughly familiar with immigration laws. If your petition is incomplete or has any errors, it will be rejected. If you hire a lawyer to fix a rejected petition that you file on your own or with the assistance of a low-cost service, you might ultimately pay higher legal fees than if you had retained an experienced immigration attorney in the first instance.
The fee that you pay a lawyer to help prepare a petition correctly is an investment in your future that gives you the best opportunity to gain legal residency. If you try to save those costs, you may be putting your investment at risk.
