How Much Does It Cost for a Mandamus Lawsuit to Get a Visa Out of Administrative Processing?

People come to me when their visas are stuck in administrative processing. They’ve applied for a visa. They went to the interview. And instead of getting their visa approved, they were told they have to go through administrative processing.

They don’t know how long it’s going to take. It could take months. It could take years. It could take days. Who knows? Their visas are just stuck and they’re not getting any meaningful information about it.

That’s where I come in. I help people out. I’m Josh Goldstein, an immigration lawyer. I help people and families all over the world and across the country whose visas are stuck in administrative processing helping them with processes such as filing mandamus lawsuits.

The Cost of a Mandamus Lawsuit Varies

The key question I get from people is, “Well, how much do you charge? How much is it?” The answer is that it depends. Before I can give you a writ of mandamus fee quote, I want to talk to you first because before I can tell you exactly how much I would charge you, I need a little more detail. I have a number of questions that I want to go through so I can learn more about your situation and see if you’re a good candidate for the solution that I have.

I need to know the specifics of what’s going on, such as:

  • Which consulate is sitting on your visa.
  • How long you have been waiting.
  • What type of visa it is.
  • How long the process has been taking.
  • Whether there’s any additional information that the consul has been asking for.
  • If you are dealing with a 221(g)
  • If you have gotten stuck in the background check process.

To get these answers, I’ll want to meet with you by phone, video, or in person.

Many of my clients are located in other parts of the country or even in other parts of the world. We could meet face to face in my office too, of course. We have offices in Los Angeles and Boston. Either way, I need to have more information about your USCIS writ of mandamus case before I can give you a fee quote.

At the end of that conversation, if I’m able to help you, I very likely will be able to give you a fee quote and tell you, “This is how much it costs,” and, “This is how long I think it’ll take.”

If you have questions about how I might be able to help you get your visa out of administrative processing and you’re interested in my help, please tell us about your case. I’ll be happy to chat with you and help you out.

Do you charge hourly for your legal services?

The fee that I charge is a flat fee. It’s a fixed price. It covers all the work associated with the case.

Are there any other costs besides legal fees?

In addition to my fee, there is a $402 fee for the court, a filing fee.

What Our Clients Have to Say:

“Josh came highly recommended : my husband swears by him. Josh took great care of him securing him his H-B Visa, his green card, and then his citizenship. Naturally, I hired Josh for my green card and despite the uncertainty and stress of the pandemic, the process went very smoothly. Josh is super professional, prompt, always available, and with a good sense of humor to boot. I always felt listened to, supported, and reassured. No doubt I will use Josh’s services in the near future for my immigration needs.Josh really is the best !!”
