You can find out more about our services and fees below.

General UK immigration advice

We offer a 30 min consultation over the phone or in-person at £ 120 (excluding VAT).

In-depth Consultation including written advice

If you request an in-depth immigration consultation, we can either meet in our offices in London (Kensington) or speak over the phone or via a video call. We will assess your circumstances during the first meeting, discuss your needs, and provide you with our expert opinion.

We will then follow this up with a written document containing our legal evaluation of your situation and what we advise you to do. The document will explain your options and which ones would be best to pursue. An in-depth consultation is £290 - £ 450 (excluding VAT), depending on the complexity of your case and the research required to assist you.

If you decide to instruct us to prepare an application on your behalf, we will deduct the consultation fee from the application fee.

Immigration applications: Our fees

The fees shown in the table below are based on the average amount of time we will spend on your case.

If your situation is more complex and we need to spend more time on your case to achieve the outcome you seek, your fee will be higher. 

Below are some examples of the complexities that could require more work from us.

  • Previous negative immigration history - for example, overstaying or adverse credibility findings
  • Criminal convictions
  • Behaviour that might question your good character
  • Extensive research and evidence are required to support your case
  • Undisclosed information to the immigration authorities or us
  • The need for an interpreter (if you don’t speak fluent English)
  • Inability or refusal to provide the required documentary evidence
  • A high number of witnesses we need to interview and statements we need to take
  • High level of contact between you and us and third parties
  • New evidence supplied after we started working on your case
  • A high number of supporting documents which need to be considered and potentially translated
  • Whether you need to attend a Home Office interview, which requires preparation and drafting new legal advice after the interview.

Each case and situation is different. We can provide you with a more accurate estimate once we know your case better. We will agree on a fee with you before we start working on your application.
