We Understand...

Moving to the UK can be a complicated and stressful experience. Our immigration solicitors will get to know you and your plans for the future so we can help you achieve your ambitions in our country.

We appreciate that issues involving immigration can be complex, stressful, and frustrating. Choosing the right visa and proving your eligibility can be difficult, particularly if you want to work in the UK or bring your family with you. If you come to the UK with the wrong visa or stay here once your visa has expired, you risk being deported.

We work with our client’s individual needs and requirements – no two situations are exactly the same. We consider each of our client’s individual circumstances and our fees reflects the particular requirements and complexities of their matter.

We need to understand the complexities of your situation before providing you with an individual estimate of the cost of us helping you.

Immigration Application Steps for Work or Business

Taking your instructions

In order to understand what support, you require we will initially arrange to meet with you in person or arrange a consultation over the telephone or video conference. The purpose of this first meeting is to enable you to explain in detail your background, your current circumstances, and what it is that you are trying to achieve. In most cases, we will be able to give you some initial advice about your position in that meeting.

Assessing your position and advising on it

Every person’s situation is different and it is important that the advice we provide you with is tailored to your individual circumstances and provides you with detailed advice about your position. Usually, at this stage, we will need to prepare a detailed advice letter explaining the legal framework and how this applies to the practicalities of your immigration situation.

Preparation and Submission of your Application

This would involve based on your circumstances, we can advise the best route to file in for a successful application as follows:

  • Explaining what documents you will need to have to support your application, reviewing and commenting on those documents to ensure they meet the relevant criteria;
  • Completing the necessary application forms – now usually online and uploading the supporting evidence;
  • Providing ongoing legal advice throughout the preparation of the application if any issues or challenges arise through the process;
  • Assisting, as required, with the booking of any necessary application, priority services or Visa appointment

You can find below an indication of the fee range for certain types of applications. The information is given for guidance only and subjects to a case-to-case basis depending on the complexity of the application.

We have also included guidance on the potential fees associated with the approval of any dependents (spouse or child of the applicant) on the basis that they are applying at the same time as the main applicant.

Bam! Our house purchase was done in a flash. Ainjita was so quick, hands on and efficient that our house purchase was ready in around four weeks. She was very reassuring and answered hundreds of my questions. She was down to earth and gave us lots of extra tips for our new property.
