Basis of Fees
 
We typically charge an agreed fee for the majority of immigration applications.
 
Where we act on this basis, our fee is based on what we consider reasonable taking into account the time that will likely be required to complete the matter based on our hourly rates, level of expertise involved, the urgency of the matter and the circumstances of your case, such as:
 
  • The amount of supporting evidence we need to consider;
  • Whether you are applying with dependants;
  • The overall complexity of the case (e.g. whether you qualify under the Immigration Rules or we need to make a discretionary application, previous immigration history, any criminal convictions etc.)
 
If you are able to provide sufficient evidence at our first meeting, clearly meet the applicable Immigration Rules, and the application proceeds without any unforeseen complications, then the cost for a single applicant is likely to be in the region of the fees specified in the table below.
 
If the circumstances of your application are more complex – and/or there are unforeseen complications – then the cost may well exceed the fees specified in the table.  Any such additional costs will depend on the time spent at the applicable hourly rates (see Appendix 1).

Basis of Fees
 
We typically charge an agreed fee for the majority of immigration applications.
 
Where we act on this basis, our fee is based on what we consider reasonable taking into account the time that will likely be required to complete the matter based on our hourly rates, level of expertise involved, the urgency of the matter and the circumstances of your case, such as:
 
  • The amount of supporting evidence we need to consider;
  • Whether you are applying with dependants;
  • The overall complexity of the case (e.g. whether you qualify under the Immigration Rules or we need to make a discretionary application, previous immigration history, any criminal convictions etc.)
 
If you are able to provide sufficient evidence at our first meeting, clearly meet the applicable Immigration Rules, and the application proceeds without any unforeseen complications, then the cost for a single applicant is likely to be in the region of the fees specified in the table below.
 
If the circumstances of your application are more complex – and/or there are unforeseen complications – then the cost may well exceed the fees specified in the table.  Any such additional costs will depend on the time spent at the applicable hourly rates (see Appendix 1).
 
Please see below the typical fee in relation to a standard Tier 4 (General) application.
