Application Checking Service

We check every detail of your application, ensuring all the required documentation and evidence is present.

The Application Checking Service is for those who are comfortable with completing their visa application but would like some visa application advice to ensure it is correct and gives the best chances of success. If you require help with the entire application, take a look at our Application Package.

Our highly skilled lawyers will check every aspect of your application, as well as ensure all the required documentation and evidence is present.

We will provide advice based on your circumstances and advise on amendments we feel are needed to strengthen your visa application and ensure a positive outcome.  


What is involved in a Document Check?

Our Document Check service is a comprehensive package which will advise and guide you on your application and supporting documentation before it is submitted to the Home Office.

It involves the following;

  • Taking detailed instructions from you about your circumstances
  • Providing you with tailored advice on the various options open to you
  • Checking through the collated documentation required to support your application
  • Checking through your completed application forms
  • Providing you with advice on amendments and corrections required to enhance the chances of success of your application


How long does a Document Check take?

We usually allow a day for the lawyer to complete the document check.

Work can only begin on your case once your lawyer has received your completed application and all of the supporting documentation and evidence.

We will aim to provide feedback to you the same day to give you time to make any amendments before you submit your application.

Are there any additional costs or hidden fees?

There are no additional costs or hidden fees. The fee you have been quoted for the Document Check is all that you will pay.

If your lawyer thinks that you may be better off with the Application Package, they will make you aware during the feedback and will quote you the fee.

You are under no obligation to proceed with the Application Package.
