Additional information about fees and costs
Your initial enquiry is free of charge: this lets me find out about your case and I can let you know if legal advice will be helpful to you. I am always happy to point you to free resources that will let you handle your own application, if your case is straightforward.
For most applications my quoted fee will cover my work in preparing your application for submission to the Home Office. This includes things like filling in the application form, preparing documents, and writing to the Home Office. After the application has been submitted I will give you a fresh quote if you need further advice. For Court or Tribunal work, I will advise you about what is covered when I provide a quote.
As well as my fees you may also have to pay other costs such as application fees, translation costs, Court or Tribunal fees for an appeal or Judicial Review, and the Immigration Health Surcharge. You may need to pay for a barrister to represent you at an appeal hearing. I will notify you of any costs that apply to your case when you instruct me, and as the case progresses.
If you would like more information about my charges, or any of the other costs that you might have to pay as part of your immigration or citizenship application please contact me.
Please note that unfortunately I cannot carry out work funded by Legal Aid.
