What can I expect at an advice session with an IAS immigration solicitor?
Our one-off advice packages allow clients to be matched with a solicitor experienced in your required area of immigration and nationality law. You will be given an appointment (these are un-timed but usually around an hour) during which your solicitor will take detailed notes about your case and circumstances. This can be done remotely, either over the phone or via Skype call.
They will then be able to provide you with in-depth jargon-free legal advice on options open to you and potential immigration routes to take to achieve your desired outcome. They will also discuss the eligibility and documentation requirements.
The solicitor will also advise you of further services and advice IAS can give you, such as our full application package, where we will complete your paperwork to our highest professional standards.
You will also be able to ask any questions you may have about the process. For a further seven days after the session, you will also be able to get in touch to ask any further questions.
To start your query, no matter what area of immigration law it concerns, you can contact our team 7 days a week on 0330 433 1213.
Can you help me if my application is time sensitive?
Yes we can. Our team are experienced in dealing with many applications with an added time pressure! Our Fast-Track Application Package is just for this purpose, and has dealt with client’s applications in 1-2 days in the past.
If your application is fast-tracked, it becomes top priority for our lawyers. The lawyer working on your case will check your documentation and application thoroughly, book a Premium Same-Day Slot with the Home Office and assist in completing the entire process to the highest professional standards. We will handle all of the liaison with the Home Office on your behalf and also write you a Letter of Representation to accompany your application.
Not every type of visa is eligible for this service – for example Fiance Visas cannot be fast-tracked. To find out if this service is for you, contact us on 0330 433 1213.

For any applications from abroad, the Home Office currently charges £1523. For any applications from within the UK, the cost is £1033. This price will go up if you also have children. There can also be additional costs to the process, such as taking an approved English Test, which is one of the eligibility requirements.
Yes absolutely. We know a refusal from the Home Office is disheartening but it is common. Our immigration solicitors can help you. You should have received a statement with your refusal saying whether you had a right to appeal. If so, IAS can offer our appeals package where we will ensure it is completed to the highest standards. If you have to resubmit your application a second time, we can offer our full application package.
