We’ve answered some of our most Frequently Asked Questions below, but if you have a question that we have not answered, please feel free to book a one-on-one consultation with one of our experts, give us a call on 0161 200 9960, or click on the webchat icon at the bottom right hand side of this page.

What do I have to pay Barings Law for a successful case?

During your initial consultation, our legal experts will be able to explain their fees in more detail. Due to their complexity, and the fact that immigration cases are unique to an individual applicant, it will be carried out on an fixed-fee basis. If we are unable to reach a successful outcome for you, you will not be charged for anything except for your initial consultation fee.

Can I make an immigration application myself?

You do not have to use the services of a legal practice to represent you and you are entitled to file a case yourself. Enlisting the help of Barings Law means we can take the hassle and stress out of the process for you and will be reassured that you have experts working on your case for you.

We will help you build your case, which can be complex. This includes gathering the relevant documentation required for the Home Office or embassy to be able to make their decision.

We have an experienced legal team who have successfully processed a large quantity of immigration applications, ranging from visa applications to asylum cases.

How long does each application take?

Each immigration case is unique, which means there is no definitive period of time for an application to reach its conclusion. To speed up the process, we simply require your full co-operation when needed. Once it is in the hands of the Home Office or embassy, it can take several months before they will inform you of the outcome.

If you are on a strict deadline to receive your decision, our legal team will be able to offer advice and provide you with information on other options open to you, such as Fast Track.

Can I cancel my application?

You are entitled to cancel your application at any stage of the process. However, please bear in mind that doing so may leave you liable to pay any costs and disbursements accrued in our legal team’s preparation of your case.

We understand that circumstances can change. However, if you still want to apply for your visa, we recommend seeing your application through to its conclusion. By cancelling, you could also be at risk of delaying any new application you wish to make as you will have to start from the beginning.

What are the grounds for filing for immigration in the UK?

There are multiple options available when it comes to immigration, and which route an applicant can pursue. Each application will come with different requirements. Our legal team will be able to provide you with further information during your initial consultation.

Where can I find more information on Barings Law’s previous work?

In addition to providing assistance with immigration cases, our legal team are experts in securing compensation claims for our customers and corporate clients. These range from the mis-selling of financial products or services to data breaches and misleading diesel emission claims.
