Fee information: Immigration

Immigration

Our firm can assist you with a number of immigration applications. The costs of those applications are often linked to the number of hours involved in preparing the application, submitting the application and then advising on the outcome of the application.

The number of hours required for each application will depend on the circumstances in your case, such as:

  • The amount of supporting evidence that we need to consider
  • Which language(s) you speak
  • Whether you are applying with other dependants
  • How many meetings you feel you need
  • Whether or not you provide instructions in a timely and reasonable manner
  • Whether or not you have any criminal convictions or other credibility issues
  • Whether or not you have a complete travel and immigration history

The work will involve:

  • Discussing your circumstances in detail and confirming whether the most appropriate application for you to make and any other options that may be available to you;
  • Giving you advice about the requirements of the law and whether you meet the criteria;
  • Considering one set of supporting documents;
  • Preparing your application and submitting it on your behalf;
  • Giving you advice about the outcome of the application and any further steps you may need to take

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties. For example, visa fees payable to the Home Office are a disbursement.

We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process but may require money to be paid to us in advance from you in order to do so.

The following are disbursements that you may incur depending on the nature of your application:

The following are not included in our costs:

  • Interpreters fees
  • Independent expert reports
  • Home Office application fees
  • Where the Home Office refuses your application, advice and assistance in relation to any appeal
  • Travel costs
  • Attendance at any Home Office interview
  • Counsel fees
  • Multiple document reviews

 

How long will my application take?

We cannot guarantee how long the Home Office will take to process your application. Please read the current processing times here: https://www.gov.uk/visa-processing-times

Please note the anticipated number of hours and fees are an estimate based on the facts above. All applications are likely to vary and of course, we can give you a more accurate estimate once we have more information about your specific case. Fixed fees are available on a case by case basis.
