We are a specialist immigration firm undertaking all aspect of immigration work in the UK. We assist our clients with making applications to the Home Office, entry clearance applications overseas, appeals and immigration judicial reviews before the Tribunals and the courts in the UK. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) requires us to publish information on prices and services we offer to our clients.

We carry out our work on an agreed fixed fee basis. It means that our clients are aware of what they will pay us from the outset of their cases. Expenses and VAT may be payable in addition to the agreed fixed amount. In addition, there are a number of expenses which have to be paid to third parties to enable us to complete work in your case (see below). These charges must be paid by you separately. If it becomes apparent that there are unforeseen circumstances in your case, we may have to agree a separate agreed fixed fee to cover the extra work.

We set out below some basic information relating to our charges in the most common cases we undertake. Please note that we have not included our charges in some categories of work such as asylum applications, human rights applications, bail applications to the Secretary of State, appeal work and immigration judicial reviews costs — because these can vary widely according to the circumstances of the case and the SRA has confirmed that we are not required to publish prices for these types of applications. However, we can agree a fixed fee after finding out more about your particular case following an initial consultation.

Initial Consultation

We are available for an initial consultation where we will provide a one-off advice to potential clients either face-to-face or by telephone / remotely. Our consultation fees are as follows:

Our face-to-face consultation fee: £200 - £300

Our telephone/remote consultation fee: £100 - £150

These fees include taking instructions from you, advising you about the law, procedure and potential costs applicable to your case and the options available based on your circumstances. After the initial consultation, we will provide you with a letter or an email which summarises what you told us and our advice to you.

Our fees do not include VAT but we are required by law to add VAT at the rate of 20% to our charges if applicable. Many immigration applicants are not required to pay VAT particularly if they are applying from abroad or have never previously been granted a visa in the UK. We will advise you if this applies to you.

Preparing and submitting your application

If you decide to instruct us after the initial consultation, we will discuss and agree our fee, when payment of our fee is required, what our role and responsibilities will be in your case and what we will need from you as our client.

What is included in our charges?

We will carry out the following work under the agreed fixed fee:

1).        Attendance on you in-person or by telephone and/or remotely taking instructions from you, discussing your circumstances in detail and confirming whether this is the most appropriate application for you to make and what other options may be available to you.

2).        Giving you advice about the requirements of the Immigration Rules and whether you meet the criteria.

3).        If you do not fulfil the criteria, whether this can be overcome and how, e.g., by making a human rights application or an application outside the Rules instead of an application under the Immigration Rules.

4).        Advising you about the necessary evidence required in support of your case.

5).        Where necessary, helping you obtain further evidence (such as medical reports and bank statements), including taking statements of any witness.

6).        Considering the evidence and preparing your application with the supporting evidence, including detailed representations from us, and submitting your application to the Home Office.

7).        Liaising with the Home Office thereafter and advising you about correspondence from the Home Office and assisting you in responding to them until a decision is received from the Home Office.

8).        Giving you advice about the outcome of the application and any further steps you may need to take.

What is NOT included in our charges?

Our agreed fixed fee does not include VAT but we will add VAT to our charges if applicable. VAT is currently 20% and we will advise you should the rate change whilst we are representing you in your case.

Further, our agreed fixed fee does not include disbursements (e.g. experts’ fees, Barristers’ fees, interpreters’ fees), appeal fees payable to the Tribunals, court fees, Home Office application fees, Immigration Health Surcharge fees, biometric enrolment fees, fees payable to Appointment Centres working for the Home Office, costs of attending interviews at the Home Office, appeals in the Tribunals and the courts, costs of any court proceedings, DNA test fees, or any unforeseen expenses which may arise over the course of your case. Such expenses and disbursements must be paid for separately by you, if and when required, and you will be advised should the need arise to incur such expenditure, an estimate of the costs, and when payment for them is likely to be needed. VAT is payable on certain expenses.

We will inform you if any unforeseen extra work becomes necessary and which is not part of the agreed fee – for example, due to unexpected difficulties or if your requirements or the circumstances change significantly during the matter. We will also inform you in writing of the estimated costs of the extra work and we will attempt to agree a separate agreed fee for the extra work with you in order to deal with the unforeseen extra work.

Use of interpreters at our meetings and interpreters’ fee

Please let us know ahead of time if you will require an interpreter at our meetings so that we can arrange for one to be available. Please note that interpreters’ fees are not included in our fees. It means that if we arrange for an interpreter, then you will have to pay the interpreter’s fee in addition to our fee. The interpreters we use charge about £20 - £30 an hour plus VAT if applicable. We are happy for you to bring a friend to our meetings to interpret but it is extremely important that you have confidence in the interpreter. Further, our concern in having an interpreter present at our meetings is to ensure that we accurately understand each other. This is essential to enable us to represent you effectively in your case.

Time estimates in Home Office applications generally

Most applications to the Home Office are generally subject to long delays. It is therefore difficult to give an accurate timescale of how long it will take the Home Office to process an application. In some cases, the Home Office will aim to resolve a case within 6 months. However, in the majority of cases, it can take much longer than 6 months to get a decision from the Home Office. There are, however, some fast-track services at the Home Office where some applications can be resolved in a matter of days but with some extra charges. If you use any of these services, then you can expect to receive a decision promptly from the Home Office in a matter of days rather than waiting for months or even years. The services are not available in every case. We will advise you if any of the fast-track services are available in your case and how much extra you will need to pay for the service.
