On average, this type of Application takes between 4 – 5 hours to complete. This means that on average costs are between £880 - £1100

The exact number of hours it will take depends on the circumstances in your case. Such as:

  • The amount of supporting evidence that we need to consider

  • Which language(s) you speak

  • Whether you are applying with other dependants

If you are able to provide sufficient evidence at our first meeting and clearly meet the applicable Immigration Rules, the cost is likely to be at the lower end of this range.

The above fees specifically do not include dealing with any decision/appeal

There are several other factors which may affect the cost of an immigration matter such as the ones listed below.   If we believe that any of these factors may affect your case these will be discussed with you in advanced:

  • Whether it is a first-time application or extension

  • There are multiple dependents (eg several children)

  • The language of the client

  • The number of supporting documents or witnesses

  • Whether it is a fast tracked / premium application.

 

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as visa fees.

  • If there is an interview and we do attend with you, there will be additional disbursements in respect of our mileage/travel expenses.

The above costs also do not include:
