FAQs

In order to better serve you, the following is a list of the most frequently asked questions we receive from our clients that outline our firm’s policies:


What payment methods do we accept?
We accept cash, credit, debit, and money orders.

How do I make payment?
Family Law Clients: We require that our clients pay a retainer before work begins. If work exceeds the retainer, further payments will be expected and billed according to the hours worked by the attorney.
Immigration Law Clients: We require that our clients pay 50% of the attorney’s fee as a deposit before work begins and the other half of the attorney’s fee before the petition is filed.

Are there any additional service charges?
If you pay by cash or check, there are no service charges. However, if you pay by credit card, we charge a 2.75% service fee or if your check does not deposit, we charge the appropriate bank fees.

Do you offer payment plans?
Family Law Clients: Yes, but only after the retainer has been paid in full. Future potential payments can be made on a monthly basis after a determination is made that the client needs such assistance.
Immigration Law Clients: Yes, but only after half of the attorney’s fee is paid as a down payment. While we encourage clients to pay the remaining half before the petition is filed, we offer payment plans on a case-by-case basis in order to assist those clients in need of them.

What type of consultation do you offer?
We offer in-person or telephone consultations for 30-minutes.

Do you charge a consultation fee?
Yes, we charge $60 for a 30-minute consultation, which will be credited to your account if you retain our services.

Do you charge additionally if there is a Request for Evidence (RFE)?
Generally not, unless relevant information and evidence was not disclosed by the client at the initial filing.

How long will my process take?
Each process and procedure varies and changes regularly. Once we determine what process you are eligible for, we can give you a better estimate of the time involved.

Will I be charged for additional communications with the attorney?
Family Law Clients: Yes. Additional verbal and written communications will be considered time spent by the attorney on your case and will be either taken from the retainer or will be billed to the client.
Immigration Law Clients: Verbal and written communications are included in the attorney’s fee. However, we charge for anything above and beyond what is “reasonable” based on the communications we have had with prior clients. Before the client would be billed, s/he would be notified that their communications are exceeding the scope of the attorney’s fees.

Are government filing fees included in the cost of the contract?
No, government filing fees are separate and are not a part of the attorney’s fees.

Are mailing and copying costs included in the attorney’s fee?
No, mailing and copying costs are a flat fee of $50 to be automatically added to the attorney’s fee.

Are results guaranteed?
