How long will my application take?

We cannot guarantee how long the Home Office will take to process your application. Read the current processing times.

 

When we take your instructions we will estimate how long your application may take to prepare and submit. For example, a typical spouse entry clearance application can be prepared in 4-6 weeks, so long as you are able to provide supporting evidence promptly.

Please note the anticipated time and fees are estimates based on the facts above. All applications are likely to vary and of course, we can give you a more accurate estimate once we have more information about your specific case.

If you would like information about how we will handle your case, and the fees we charge, please call us on 0161 503 0553.

Terms of Business

We adopt a collaborative approach to our work, which means that lawyers of varying experience, from paralegals to qualified solicitors, may work on your case at different times. We will make clear in our client engagement letter who is responsible for your file.

Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as visa and you will pay this directly as part of the application process. You will be informed at the date of instruction of the exact Government fees payable. 

 

The costs quoted do not include:

  • Any Home Office fees for making the application. You will pay this to the Home Office directly as part of the application process.

  • Where the Home Office refuses your application, advice and assistance in relation to any appeal

If you or we decide that we will no longer act for you, you will be required to pay our charges on an hourly basis as per the law society rate. All disbursements must be paid by you. 

In all cases, we will take your instructions and get you the best quote before laying the charges to you.

Please note that our fees are non-refundable.
