Legal Fees

We understand that the cost of legal services is an important consideration for our clients. At Aspen Crown Solicitors we work as efficiently as possible without compromising on quality. By focusing on the key issues right from the start we can ensure that our clients get value for money.

In most cases, we are able to provide an agreed fee quote. These fees are based on the standard work required in most cases which includes:

  • Attending clients,
  • taking instructions, discussing circumstances in detail to explore and ascertain the most suitable application
  • Considering documents, advising about and requiring further evidences [where needed]
  • Providing advice on merits, timelines, and outcome of an application under relevant Immigration Rules, EEA Regulations and Nationality Law
  • Preparing statements of the case (if necessary)
  • Preparing and submitting an application

The work in the Immigration Department will normally be conducted by a qualified Solicitor or an accredited caseworker from the Law Society. These caseworkers can be assisted by a paralegal or trainee solicitor.

Please note that if the matter is complex then our fees usually will be the higher end of the range. For straightforward matters (such as those where the evidence is promptly provided and does not involve lengthy correspondence between parties), the lower end will usually be quoted.

How long will my application take?

We cannot guarantee how long the Home Office will take to process your application. Please read the Home Office’s current processing times[1]. We will normally be able to submit this type of application within 1-3 weeks of you instructing us depending on the availability of the required documents, but we will let you know at the earliest opportunity if it is likely to take longer than this. If your case is urgent with a deadline for submission within 1 week, we will discuss with you the practicalities of meeting the deadline and if we’re able to do so, agree on an appropriate plan of action.

Getting Started

If you wish to instruct us in respect to an application, please call us on 01206 489 077 or email enquiries@aspencrown.co.uk. Clients usually start with a one-hour consultation with a solicitor to take your initial instructions and give you our preliminary view on the merits of your case and available options. We can also give you a more informed estimate for your particular case after an initial consultation. After the initial consultation, you can decide whether you wish to instruct us further in the matter. Consultations can be in person, by phone, or by email.
