Funding Options and Costs

We are able to offer Legal Aid dependent upon the circumstances of the case and your income, and so you may not have to pay for our services. If you do not qualify for free legal advice, we offer various funding options including very competitive hourly rates, and can also agree a fixed fee for MOST matters. We are able to agree payment plans where suitable.

Fixed fees cover all of the legal work required in connection with the particular application up to the point you receive a decision from the Home Office/Embassy. At this point we will discuss with you any options regarding an appeal or further steps you can take, together with further costs. If we offer a fixed fee in connection with an appeal, then the fee covers all of the legal work required in connection with your appeal, including representation at the Court/Tribunal, up to the promulgation of the court or Tribunal’s judgement. At this point we will advise you as to onward appeal rights and any associated further costs.
