What are the benefits of hiring an immigration lawyer?

There are numerous benefits of instructing an immigration lawyer, however, here are our top three benefits of hiring an immigration lawyer:

Peace of mind

Given how quickly UK immigration law changes, having an immigration lawyer assist with your application can provide peace of mind. You can be confident that your case is being handled in accordance with the most up-to-date immigration rules and regulations.



Not only do immigration applications involve extensive paperwork and documentation to be provided but navigating the legal jargon throughout the process can be an additional barrier, regardless of whether English is your native language or not. By instructing an immigration lawyer, you will have a highly trained professional deal with your case. They will be able to break down the relevant immigration rules and case law, answering any questions you may have.


Minimise the risk

By hiring an immigration lawyer, you can streamline the application process. They take care of completing all the relevant work on your behalf. Throughout your case, an immigration lawyer will provide advice on how to proceed, outlining the potential consequences of each option and advising on the one with the highest chance of success. This minimises the risk of a refusal, saving you time and money that would otherwise be spent on reapplying or challenging a decision.


How do I choose an immigration lawyer?

There is no set procedure involved in choosing an immigration lawyer because your choice is likely to be dependent on factors which are important to you (i.e. cost, location, accreditations).

However, regardless of what factors will be important in your final decision, we recommend checking whether your immigration lawyer is accredited by a relevant auditor, such as the Law Society


Will my case be successful with an immigration lawyer?

While hiring an immigration lawyer does not guarantee the success of your application, their specialist expertise significantly increases the chances of a positive outcome.


If I hire an immigration lawyer, will my application be processed quicker?

An immigration lawyer will review and organise all the required documents and evidence to ensure that your application is accurate and complete. However, hiring an immigration lawyer does not necessarily mean that your application will be processed quicker. Instead, by hiring an immigration lawyer, you can guarantee that a well-prepared application is submitted. In general, this improves the likelihood of the Home Office granting the application at the first instance, reducing the chances of an initial refusal that may require further challenges and cause additional delays.


How much does an immigration lawyer cost?

The costs of hiring an immigration lawyer depend on various factors, such as the required services, type of application, and the complexity of the case. When assessing the fees associated with different law firms, it is likely that you will come across a range of pricing strategies. Among these, two commonly used approaches are hourly rates and fixed fee packages. Hourly pricing ensures that you only pay for the actual hours dedicated to your case, while fixed fee packages means that one set fee is charged for a certain legal service. Opting for a fixed fee package offers the advantage of knowing upfront what you will be charged, eliminating any unexpected surprises when it comes to making the final payment.
