Immigration Lawyers Help with Everything from Visa Applications to Preventing Deportation - Choose With Care

Would you like to apply for a student visa? Maybe you've recently had a visa application for travel refused and need to appeal? Perhaps you have to make an application for bail from detention? Regardless of what your conditions may be, or how unique your scenario is, you need quality immigration experts who can help you. 

Make sure the solicitors are all exceptionally experienced and hold the essential qualifications. They should have undergone rigorous tests to ensure they possess the abilities needed to give you the finest possible service. If required, make sure the company will support both national and international customers and take the time and effort to match you to the best immigration solicitor for your particular needs.

Consider the pricing structure too. Some solicitors work on a fixed fee basis. You'll negotiate a fee together with the solicitor in question before the service starts. When you're happy, you're able to go through the process knowing that the price wont suddenly jump up.  However complicated your case becomes, you will be sure there will not be any hidden costs or additional fees (unless clearly specified up front as optional extras). This isn't the case when you pay by the hour in a more traditional way for solicitors and the price can quickly escalate if the case turns out to be more complicated than initially thought. However if your case is quite straightforward you may end up paying less in a pay as you go approach.

You also need to make sure the immigration firm provides the required level of communication and support. It can be worrying when you don't know what is happening in your case or you feeling like it isn't being progressed. You need to choose a company you can easily get hold of and get updates from. Maybe agree a minimum frequency for updates or ask for recommendations from others?  

We hope this information gives you something to think about how an immigration expert can help you and what to look at before you choose one.
