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

Legal Fees

$4,500 for preparing the Labor Certification Application at the commencement of the case.
$3,500 for preparing Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker;
$1,500 for preparing Form I-485, Application to Adjust Status or Consular Processing.
TOTAL FEES: $9,500 USD

Legal Fee for labor certification must be paid by the employer with certified or cashier’s check.

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.
