At Chris Alexander Solicitors our fee for legal representation in your In-Country First Tier Tribunal immigration appeal is £1,500 (+ 20% VAT) for our professional immigration services.  This standard fee will cover all our work until a decision is made by the Immigration Judge. The standard fee includes the following:  Perusal of Documents, drafting and lodging of Grounds of Appeal, preparing and filing your appeal bundle, drafting of witness statements and legal representation at the Tribunal.

The standard fee will not cover any disbursements which are incurred e.g. translation of documents, or subsequent appeal rights.
