Our Fees and Price Transparency

The table below shows our minimum pricing for each of the main services or application types that we offer.  The price that we ask for a particular matter may well be lower or higher than the price listed here for a number of reasons:

  • If your matter is particularly straightforward or you have done much of the work yourself, then we may well offer a lower fee for our services.

  • If you do not wish for us to offer our normal full service then we may negotiate a lower fee with you.

  • If there are particular complications with a matter that mean that a lot more work will need to be done to achieve a positive prospect of success then this may be reflected in a higher fee for our services. Such complications include:

  1. Criminal convictions of the applicants and sponsors.

  2. Previous negative immigration history (such as overstaying or non-compliance with the immigration rules).

  • Previous behaviour that brings into doubt good character of the applicants or sponsors.

  1. Any undisclosed information that was not disclosed to ourselves and/or the relevant immigration authority.

  2. Inability or refusal to provide standard documentary evidence.

  3. Exceptional circumstances that require mitigation (particularly in protracted matters that require extensive examination and representation)

We are also aware that sometimes our fees may be unaffordable to some and, in exceptional circumstances, we may offer to divide payments across a number of a period however we reserve the right not to submit or complete any application until full fees are paid.

There may be some additional costs that are required to be paid to us to pay third parties on your behalf. It is our practice not to involve ourselves in such payments, called disbursements, as we usually ask our clients to pay these directly themselves.  Such payments include:

  • The Home Office fee. These fees change regularly and you can find the most up-to-date version at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/visa-regulations-revised-table

  • Immigration Health Surcharge – this is variable based on a number of factors and the most up-to-date version can be found at https://www.gov.uk/healthcare-immigration-application/how-much-pay

  • Interpretering and translation fees – we do not offer these services and you should assess the affordability of these services.

  • DHL / Postage / Courier / Exceptionally heavy postage – couriers’ fees differ depending in the weight of that being sent and the location of the recipient. As a rule, we do not make a charge for Royal Mail delivery within the UK

  • Expert and Medical Expert Reports – we do not offer these services and you should assess the affordability of these services.

  • Court Fees – Currently, the court fee is £140 and we may well request this as a disbursement that is hold on account.

  • Non-standard counsel fees – if you plan to use counsel of your own choosing then you are liable for their fee. The fee for counsel varies wildly depending upon the qualifications and experience of each individual barrister.

What our work includes:

As all applications differ depending on the type of application and the facts of the matter, all standard steps in preparing an application on your behalf.

Standard steps include file opening and legal checks, 1-hour consultation, information gathering, documents review, preperation of representations, preperation and submission of applications. Generally, on a standard application, we will have completed all work no later than 3-months from the date of instruction, however, this is largely dependent on the timely propvision of supporting documents.

What the work does not include:

  • Any non-standard steps including unexpected problems or complexities, further representations, advice following a negative decision

  • Changes in your instruction

  • Delays resulting in unforeseen work

  • A change in the facts of a matter such as by misrepresentation

 

Here follows our standard fee structure.
