Immigration Advice Service offers an industry leading advice package, which aims to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision on how to proceed with your immigration matter.

Our Advice Session can take place either in person (in one of our nationwide offices), over the phone or via Skype with one of our highly qualified, OISC regulated immigration lawyers. They will take detailed instructions about your immigration matter and provide you with comprehensive advice on what your options are and the next steps you need to take.

During your Advice Session, we will also discuss how we can undertake and manage the entire application process for you with our Application Package, making the process as smooth and stress-free as possible whilst maximising the chances for success by using our vast, proven experience and expertise.

FAQs

What happens during the Advice Session?

Whether the session is in-person, over telephone or via Skype, you will receive the same, consistent and professional service.

Your dedicated lawyer will:

  • Take detailed instructions from you based on the circumstances of your case
  • Discuss and advise you on the requirements of the UK Immigration Rules and how they apply to your case
  • Provide tailored advice on the various options available to you and the relevant application form(s) and related Home Office/government fees
  • Advise on the documentation required in support of your application
  • Outline the expected time frames pertaining to the case
  • Advise on a plan of action for the options identified and discuss the relevant strategies
  • Provide an assessment of the chances of success for the application
  • Answer any follow up queries in relation to the matter following the session

How long will the session last?

The Advice Package is an untimed session. This means that you will have as long as you require with your lawyer, whether it be in person, telephone or Skype.

We usually allow an hour for the session but it can take as little or as long as you need. We just want to ensure that you fully understand the advice that is given and you are clear on the next steps you need to take.

Are there any additional costs?

There are no additional costs or hidden fees. The one-off payment for the Advice Package is all that you pay.

Your lawyer may advise you on how we can assist further with an application – the fees for this will be provided to you during the Advice Session. Our fees are always transparent, meaning the quote you are given is all that you will ever pay.

What if I still have questions after the session has taken place?

As part of our service, you are able to receive further advice following on from the session.

For example, if you have had a few days to think about what was discussed and you have follow-up questions you need answering, you will still have access to your lawyer who will answer these for you.

If you are unsure about anything, please speak to a member of our Enquiries Team.
