How much does an immigration lawyer charge to file asylum

The fees for immigration lawyer services in US are relatively steep if you want to receive help when filing Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal.

Just filing an asylum form might cost you at least around 25-300 dollars depending on the city and the expertise of you lawyer.

If you legally entered the US (meaning you entered the US territory with a valid visa) and you want to apply for affirmative asylum, you might consider filing the form yourself. We recommend you to spend a little more time learning what information you must provide on the form. Given that USCIS provides detailed instructions on how to fill out any forms, it’s unlikely that you make a mistake.

However, if you’re going through the defensive asylum and run the risk of being removed from the US, it’s best to ask for help from an immigration lawyer to increase your chances.
