What Are Your Fees for a K-1 Visa from Laos?

Transcript of the above video:

As the title of this video suggests, we are discussing the K-1 Visa. We are specifically discussing it from Laos so folks with a Laos fiancée who are looking to process a K-1 Visa from the US Embassy in Vientiane, Laos.

I get a lot of enquiries on K-1s and one thing I often get is, I often get enquiries where it is just a one line enquiry: "What is your fee for doing a K-1 visa for my fiancée from Laos?" and my answer to that is "Well I need further information".

You should be very, very leery, you should deal with suspicion any operation, any outfit, unfortunately there are a lot of fake lawyers, fake law firms out here who are operating in the Immigration sphere in the sort of Southeast Asian ecosystem, especially on the internet and certain service providers, "we provide services associated with Immigration", anybody that is quoting you a fee without actually talking to you about your case, that is somebody that needs to be viewed with a great deal of suspicion or at least an overabundance of caution.

When I talk to folks, I need to know your criminal history. I need to know your background. I need to know your potential fiancée's background and criminal history. I need to know that fiancée's Immigration history; to name just a few things. There are many other things that can have a bearing on the overall prospect of getting a Fiancé Visa to the United States and any outfit that just quotes a fee for example on their website, just says "this is what we charge for a K-1 Visa", that should be viewed very suspiciously and different Attorneys do things differently. Different Attorneys do things on different types of fee building structures, rates, and that is fine. Different Attorneys may view their time and their ability and their knowledge of dealing with these cases in a different context and they may quote differently but what I am saying is that somebody who doesn't even take into account the specifics of your case before providing a quotation, that in my opinion is somebody that you need to look askance at. I mean it really needs to be viewed again with an overabundance of caution in retaining somebody like that. They may not even think you are eligible. They may know you are not eligible for a specific type of benefit, in this case possibly fiancée visa and they may take your money anyway and just go through the motions knowing you are going to be denied. Especially with the fakes and frauds out there. They have got your money now. You are never going to get that money back. 

So the thing to take away from this video, yes we can quote you a fee. We have certain banded fee structure associated with routine filing fees, routine Attorney’s fees associated with a K-1 visa from Laos, but I need to speak to you first. I need to talk to you. I need to ascertain your situation so that I can provide you a quotation in order to process your case and bring that case presumably and hopefully to a successful conclusion.
