Immigration law is a complex and often long winded area of law, meaning that visa applications, immigration enquiries and citizenship matters, as examples, can take considerable amounts of time to process, given the numbers of checks and enquiries often undertaken by the relevant government department(s).

As a result, it is best to ensure you have expert legal advice on hand to ensure that matters go according to plan, and everything runs smoothly.

FisherWright Solicitors recognises that if you have an immigration issue to deal with, it is likely to be an anxious and difficult time for you, your family and loved ones. Perhaps your right to stay in the United Kingdom is at stake, or you are wanting to claim asylum here.

By virtue of the nature of immigration law, whilst it is also a legal matter, your immigration matter is likely to be highly personal. FisherWright Solicitors will help you every step of the way, providing the legal help that you need, but also a supportive and understanding service. This means that you can be confident that your case is in safe hands, will be dealt with by experienced professionals, and in a caring environment.

In order to have an initial and informal discussion with a member of our dedicated and professional team, please contact FisherWright Solicitors today. We look forward to hearing from you.

What is a Fixed Fee?

A Fixed Fee is an alternative to the standard hourly rate charges for our legal work. You will pay the fixed fee for each stage of the process and the scope of this work will be agreed in advance. At the outset of your matter you will be provided with an invoice for the Fixed Fee amount with the breakdown of the work agreed which will give you certainty of the work covered and legal costs payable. Fixed fee agreement will usually allow you to manage your legal costs with confidence.

Our agreed fixed fee does not cover the third-party charges e.g. court fees or Barrister’s fees. We charge affordable fixed fees with an option to pay by instalments.
