you can submit a provisional patent just for filing fees

you can also do a search

provisional filing fees used to be $100

Hi all,

I am planning to patent an idea. My attorney is asking for 1300 dollars to do the search to find out if something similar exist and to see if it makes sense to apply for patent. If there is nothing similar that exist, he would file for provisional patent (charging 1200 dollars excluding the registration fees) as I do not want to spend a lot of money on utility patent (for which he is asking about 5000 dollars). 

 I wanted to take an opinion on:

1. Does it make sense to do the search before filing for patent and spending 1300 for that search before filing for patent?
2. How much do lawyers charge for that search and also for both provisional and utility patent?
3. Is it a good idea to file for provisional patent over utility patent?

I will appreciate your help!!!
