    Answered . The previous answers are all correct. Often attorneys will want you to commit to an initial consultation first to make sure that your brother is "admissible" to the United States and to make sure you are qualified to petition for him. At the consultation, an attorney can give you a better idea of what the complications are in your case (if any), and what the fee will be. Good luck.

    Answered . Fees vary. It will be a long wait for your brother. The currently filing fee for form I-130 is $420. That is the fee paid to the Department of Homeland Security.

    I think an average fee for an I-130 with no issues is about $1,000.00 to $1,200.00. But that is just for the I-130. That is not for the whole case.
