Agreed Fixed Fees
Our fees are fair and reasonable
We operate a fixed-fee scheme. The fees payable are not subject to VAT and so you do not need to pay additional VAT on top of the agreed fixed fees. Our fixed fee does not include disbursements, which you have to pay additionally. Our aim is to provide our clients with high quality legal services at what we believe to be a fair and affordable rate. We do not charge fees on an hourly basis and there are no hidden expenses. At the very begining we will clarify with you the extent of the work that will be carried out on your behalf, so that you know exactly how much you need to pay. The costs vary according to the complexity of the case, and when you come to the first appointment you are under no obligation to become our client. We will listen to your needs and act in a fair manner and in your best interest.
We charge a consultation fee at the initial stage of between £150.00 to £250.00. The time spent in the first consultation will form part of the fixed fee for the case if you decide to instruct us to take your case further.
Our professional fees can be paid in one lump sum or in installments. We expect our fees to be paid in full.
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as tribunal fees, visa fees, interpreters, translations, country expert reports, medical reports and of course the Home Office fee and the NHS surcharge, if applicable. These you have to pay directly to the third parties concerned. Disbursements do not form part of the agreed fixed fee, except for barrister's fee for attending an appeal hearing.
The Fixed Fee Agreement will set out clearly what is included and what is not.
The quoted fees include:
- Taking your instructions and providing advice
- Considering documents
- Preparing and submitting the application
- Advising the client on timelines and the outcome of her application
- Typical timescales for applications are between 6-18 months, and for an in-country appeal between 6-12 months and sometimes even much longer. Thee is generally not much we can do when the Home Office takes much longer than anticipated. We can write reminders. We would advise clients to patient.
- As for appeals all work up to the point of advising you on the First-tier Tribunal's Determination.
Type of Application - Fixed Fees - Note that the Fixed Fees only for the application that is to be submitted. If it is rejected the Agreed Fixed Fees does not include work for the re-submission of the application or for the making of a fresh application. In such a case another fixed fee agreement will be entered into. If the application is refused, then we will enter into another fixed fee agreement for the appeal.
