UF_EPAF_Level 1 Approver
The Office of Human Resources is pleased to confirm the University of Florida will continue working with Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy for legal services related to visa processing—both immigrant and non-immigrant visa petitions. Moving forward, PERM Labor Certification cases will continue to be paid centrally by HR and the Office of the General Counsel. However, effective July 1, legal fees charged by Fragomen for non-immigrant petitions will be paid directly by the sponsoring department at a negotiated contract price of $1000 for each H1B, TN, or E3 petition. This is in line with processes at peer institutions and institutions across the state. This fee is in addition to any rush fee and/or filing fee charges that currently apply.
