We pride ourselves on providing good value for money to all - whether you are an individual or a large organisation - and this principle is reflected in our pricing standards set out below.
Rather than work on an hourly rate, we offer certainty and peace of mind by working on a fixed fee basis. Our fixed fees match industry standards while maintaining our high quality work. We understand those needing immigration advice often have tight budgets, so where possible we can tailor our fixed fee to suit those budgets and offer an instalment payment plan. This principle is equally applicable for large organisations where we tailor our fees based on the volume of work we may undertake. And finally, there are never, ever, any hidden extras, if something unforeseen occurs which was not agreed at our initial appointment we promise to bare those costs.
Seraphus does not undertake work funded by the Legal Aid Agency but we are able to refer you to organisations can provide legal aid services.
Legal Aid is a system of government funding, administered by the agency, for those who cannot afford to pay for legal advice and representation. Legal Aid is fundamental to social and legal justice. In a democratic society all citizens have a right to access justice and get a fair trial. The work is overseen by the Ministry of Justice and the annual legal budget is set by the Treasury.
If you need help with the costs of legal advice, you can apply for legal aid. Whether you receive it will depend on the type of legal problem you have, your income (how much you earn) and how much capital (money, property and belongings you have). Your case must also have a reasonable chance of success and, in the view of the agency, is worth the time and money needed to win.
If you want to check whether you are financially eligible the agency have an eligibility calculator (Google ‘legal aid eligibility calculator’) that will determine your eligibility based on your income and capital.
