Animo Legal offers a transparent fee structure for UK immigration services and legal advice. The prices listed below are for guidance only. We provide clients with accurate quotes reflecting the complexity and urgency of their matter, prior to commencing any work.

We aim to provide fixed fee quotes at the outset, to ensure that our clients are fully apprised of our fees. There are some matters where it is not possible to provide fixed fee quotes, due to the nature of the service to be provided, and on those occasions, fees will be chargeable on an hourly basis.

All prices are subject to VAT at 20% (where applicable) and are exclusive of any disbursements that may be applicable (a worked example is provided below).
