    Why Get Assistance From UK Spouse Visa Solicitors

    Here is why you should get help from a UK spouse visa solicitor:

    Assembling Documents and Advice

    You must show evidence of a genuine relationship with your partner. Some documents you must submit include your marriage certificates, proof of civil partnership, and evidence you and your spouse communicate regularly.

    An immigration lawyer will give you specific details on the documents you must submit for a successful application. There may be reasons to explore other visa options if you and your partner are not eligible for UK spouse visas. In such situations, an immigration solicitor will advise you on steps to take.

    Filling an Appeal

    If you have previously applied for a UK spouse visa without success, an expert solicitor will file a spouse visa appeal to the immigration tribunal. A lawyer will gather more evidence to appeal your case and present it to the appeals tribunal if the fault wasn’t yours.

    Our Birmingham spouse visa lawyers are knowledgeable of immigration laws and experts in UK spouse visa applications. We can liaise with the home office to ensure your case is resolved. We will guide you through this process, helping you navigate the complexity of the application and giving you regular updates on changes in immigration laws.

    Contact our Birmingham immigration lawyers on 0121 667 6530. We can help you file an appeal and secure the spouse visa UK without stress or delay.

    How Much Does the UK Spouse Visa Application Cost?

    The UK spouse visa application fee differs depending on where you are applying from. If you are applying from the UK, it costs £1,048, but if you are applying from outside the UK, it costs £1,846. As part of the application, you must also pay the immigration health surcharge fee, which costs £3,105.

    Are UK Immigration Lawyers Expensive?

    The price of hiring a UK immigration lawyer varies depending on the nature of your case and the services we provide. For instance, the cost of filing an appeal will differ from helping you apply for a UK spouse visa for the first time.

    Everyone’s financial capabilities differ, so our Birmingham immigration lawyers offer transparent and fair rates. We will give you a breakdown of our prices to ensure you know the costs before using our service.
