The fee schedule for green card through labor certifications as follows: 

 1.

Legal Fees (for our Office)

 

$6,400  ($3,200 for preparing the Labor Certification Application at the commencement of the case followed by $2,400 for preparing Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker; and $800 for preparing Form I-485, Application to Adjust Status/Consular Processing.

Note: The above legal fees includes spouse and upto two children. We do not charge extra for responding to audits at the labor certification stage and responding to RFEs at the I-140 and I-485 stage. We also do not charge additional legal fees for filing and renewing EADs and APs for the entire family.

Legal Fee for labor certification has to be borne by the employer (only corporate checks). From I-140 stage onwards, legal fee can be paid by personal/corporate checks (Although the law is not settled, the trend of DOL rulings seems to suggest that an I-140 may be considered part of employer's normal business expenses. Accordingly, DOL could hold that the employer is responsible for an I-140 related attorney fees and expenses. Although DOL has not explicitly stated this by regulations, we must make employers aware that such a legal position is indeed a distinct possibility. We highly recommend that the employers should pay the I-140 expenses.)

2. Filing Fees (to the USCIS): Single Applicant
  I-140: $700
  I-485, I-765, I-131, Fingerprinting: $1225
3.

Federal Express Expenses: approximately $400

Advertising Costs: approx. $1000-2000, (Please note that we provide the ad but do not place the ads)

5.

Educational Evaluation: approx.$150-295

6.

Expert opinion in case of an audit: approx. $300-500

Please note: If the application is likely to be complicated, we charge higher amounts for legal fees. Most cases fall in $6,400 range (plus, for employee/beneficiary families with more than two children, $500.00 more for each additional child beyond two).
Note: The filing fee of $1225 includes fee for applications I-485, I-765, and I-131, and fingerprinting irrespective of whether I-765 and I-131 applications are submitted along with I-485.

Sir, one of the agent in my city does job placement in USA on EB3. He has many motels in USA. He will issued 18 months work permit for me first. After the expiry of those 18 months, he will renew my permit for another 18 months. After completion of 3 years, I will be able to apply for green card according to him. I have received my job offer letter as a third eye operator from him mentioned at the bottom of the letter "welcome to midleton KamKp". within 25 days I will be received i765 form to sign on and then after 45 days I will be received the documents. Could you please tell me about the step by step process of EB3? is there any need of I-94 in EB3? Is there any date option he has to mentioned about my first arrival in USA either in i765 or I-94 initially? (So I could know when I will land in USA). what is the next steps could be? He told me the total processing time to get work permit is 7 to 8 months. is it right? Is he a scammer? Please give me the right guidelines.
