The exact number of hours it will take depends on the circumstances of your case. Such as:
  • The amount of supporting evidence that we need to consider
  • Which language(s) you speak, weather you need an interpreter
  • Whether you are applying with other dependants
  • If you can 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.
What services are included

The work will involve:

Discussing your circumstances in details and confirming whether this is the most appropriate application for you to make and what other options are available to you:

  • Advising you about the requirements of the Immigration Rules and whether you meet the criteria.
  • In case if you do not fulfil certain criteria, whether this can be overcome and how,
  • Considering the supporting evidence you have provided
  • Where necessary, helping you to obtain further evidence (such as medical records and bank statements), including taking statements from any witnesses;
  • Preparing your application and submitting it on your behalf,
  • Giving you advice about the outcome of the application and any further steps you may need to take.

*The amount of hours depends on the number of documents, whether they need to be considered, whether anything is missing and how long it will take to obtain the missing documents

Disbursements (not included in costs set out above). Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as visa fees. Most of the time we handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
