Immigration Law Fees.

TolTops Solicitors has migrant staff and so understands the challenges faced by Clients faced with immigration problems particularly where paying legal fees are concerned; unfortunately, the government has NO legal aid provision for immigration cases except for Asylum and some cases concerning detention.

Consequently, unless a Client faced with a difficult immigration problem is able to pay privately for a Solicitors expertise, which can be invaluable, or find a Solicitor willing to act free of charge, or for significantly reduced fees, the individual will most certainly face considerable problems accessing good quality immigration law advice or presenting his/her case robustly to the Home Office or to an Immigration Tribunal; our fees at TolTops Solicitors have been set with these considerations in mind.

Whilst we have standard fees, we are able to offer bespoke fees which take account of individual/personal circumstances of each client and importantly ability to pay.

As a result, if your financial circumstances are modest, we can agree a reduction to our standard fees or agree to payment of our fees by convenient instalments.
