A: As long as she is a US Citizen, she would start by filing a Petition for Alien Relative (form I-130) for each of her children that she wants to come to the US. She can find the form and the fee at www.uscis.gov. It is strongly recommended that she at least consult with an experienced immigration attorney before she files so to make sure her children qualify to be sponsored and get detailed information about the process. If she can hire an attorney to help her with it, even better. The cost of an attorney varies. She can look for an attorney on Justia or Aila.org. Best wishes!

A: Attorneys are not permitted to solicit and discuss professional fees online. The mother must reach other to a counsel of her choice.

A: Hello, I cant tell from the question whether your mother is an LPR or a USC. In any event, is hard to provide you with attorney fees as we don't know her personal circumstances as well as that of her adult non-married children. As such, is best that she reach out to an experienced immigration attorney to discuss her circumstances and provide her with a quote for attorney's fees. Rest assured that communication with an attorney is confidential.
