Fees


We aim to provide a clear and transparent service to our clients and so will always provide an indication on costs in all immigration matters. Our fee is usually charged on the basis of time spent (hourly basis).

Our fee includes advising you on the requirements of the rules (in person or via email), advising you on the documents required, preparing and submitting an application on your behalf, advising on timelines and likely outcome of the application, liaising with the Home Office on your behalf and providing post decision advice.


The costs mentioned below do not include disbursements which can include;

  • Home Office fee for making the application.
  • NHS Surcharge
  • Interpreter fees
  • Court fee
  • Courier charges
  • Independent experts, such as barristers and accountants etc.


  • The hourly rate varies in accordance with who is dealing with your matter and in some instances we are able to provide a fixed fee quote once we have obtained all facts.

    We have provided hourly rates below and further details about the experience of our members of staff can be found on our website.

    Our fixed fee is usually within the range mentioned below but can in some instances be lower.

    Similarly we may also charge slightly higher for matters that require urgent attention and are to take precedence over other cases. There may also be additional charges for cases considered under the premium or VIP service offered by the Home Office.
