We can assist U.S. Citizens to prepare documents for their immediate relative (e.g. spouse, parent, children etc.) Application for a Permanent Resident Card (Green Card)Price: $475 or $515 ( with a co-sponsor )
The first step in this process with the USCIS is to file a form I-130 "Petition for Alien Relative". According to the USCIS website, form G-325A "Biographical Information" needs to be filed for each person, together with the initial form. Instructions for form I-130, list all the necessary documents needed to accompany the form. The current filling fee for form I-130 is $420. Other documents needed to make this process complete are: Form I-485 "Application to Adjust Status", Form I-765 "Application for Employment Authorization", Form I-864 "Affidavit of Support" and form I-693 "Medical Exam". Be aware, that the USCIS changes filling fees quite often. Currently (2015), the total is around $1,500.
