Fees

We offer a range of different levels of service to suit all budgets. If you are unsure what may suit you then we suggest that you arrange a no obligation fixed fee consultation for £80 (up to 40 minutes). We will discuss your case in detail with you and advise on the merits of your case. You can then decide whether you would benefit from any of our other services. Unlike many other firms, we are happy to publicise our fees. Details of our fees and the range of services that we offer are given below.

  • Fixed Fee Consultation £80 inclusive of vat (up to 40 minutes). We will discuss your case in detail with you, advise on merits, the next steps that you should take and the supporting evidence you will require. We will also confirm the advice in writing and provide you with a clear and accurate estimate regarding future costs. This is a one off consultation and does not cover any further work beyond the consultation and the letter of advice.
  • Emergency Consultation £120 inclusive of vat. This will be appropriate where you need a same day or a next day meeting. The level of service will otherwise be the same as above.
  • Checking Service £250 +vat (£300) (up to 90 minutes). If you already know, what application you need to make but want the peace of mind of having your application checked over by an expert before submission, then this service is suitable for you. We are able to offer this checking service for most in-country applications, using the EEA forms, FLR forms, SET forms (excluding PBS cases) or applications for British citizenship. As part of this service we will review the paper application or online application form that you have completed (you must have completed the form already), answer any queries you have regarding the form, review your supporting evidence, advise regarding any additional evidence needed, advise you on the merits of the application and send you a letter of advice. It is very important that you come prepared to fully benefit from this service. No further work will be undertaken after the meeting unless you wish to upgrade to our Full Application Service, details of which are given below. If you upgrade then we will deduct these costs from the cost of the Full service. A prior fixed fee consultation is not necessary before utilising this service. You can book directly for this service or use it after you have had a fixed fee consultation.
  • Full Application Service As part of this service we will fully prepare your case and submit that to the Home Office or British Embassy. We will complete the application form, check your evidence, advise on any additional evidence needed, prepare and submit detailed representations in support of the application and deal with any follow up correspondence from the Home Office until your application is concluded. Our fees for various types of applications and appeals are given in the tables below.

*all fees are subject to VAT where applicable

*fees may vary according to the complexity of your case

*If more than one applicant add £150 for each additional applicant

*fees may vary according to the complexity of your case. Factors which will affect costs include;- the time required to complete your case, whether you meet the requirements of the rules, whether legal arguments regarding any particular issue needs to be made or whether particular research is necessary, volume of documentation, whether expert evidence, medical reports or social worker reports etc need to be obtained, the urgency with which work needs to be carried out etc.

In terms of the cost information given for appeals this assumes that just one witness statement will be required, no medical or expert evidence will be required and that the case does not raise any complicated issues.

All applications and cases will be different and the information given above regarding costs is based on our experience of dealing with typical cases on a day to day basis. Our sincere aim is to adhere to the typical price information given above. We will of course confirm the likely cost of dealing with your application following the initial consultation when we will have obtained information about your case. Where very occasionally it is necessary to adjust the costs of your case afterwards then we will advise you of this at the earliest possible opportunity with information as to why an adjustment is necessary and warranted.

Our fees do not include any Home Office, Tribunal appeal fees or the cost of obtaining supporting evidence such as medical / expert / social worker reports etc or translation fees. Information regarding those possible costs will be given as and when appropriate.

We have for some time given comprehensive details of our costs on our website, although, the SRA has only made this information compulsory from December 2018.

Not only are our rates highly competitive but all our lawyers are qualified and experienced solicitors who have a reputation for excellence. Your lawyer will retain responsibility for your case from start to finish and you will not be left to deal with a junior paralegal.
