Pricing for our Services
We understood the key importance of being honest and transparent in legal fees and this is why we make aware our clients of the costs involved from the outset of their case.
We operate a “fixed fee” approach to 99% of our cases which means that our clients never have any hidden costs at any point during their legal case with us. We can also offer “payment by installment” packages for those clients who wish to spread out the costs of their case. Although every legal instruction is unique and must be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, we have provided a general guide to our pricing structure for your convenience. Please note that the prices displayed may increase depending on the number of applicants and the overall complexity of the case. We are not vat registered at this stage and therefore all our prices are excluding VAT.

It is always difficult to provide accurate timescales for the progression of individual cases as this depends on the Home Office and/or the Court’s processing timescales.

If your case is extremely complex, this will of course increase the timescales as well as the costs involved.
