In general, after making an appointment, we will send you a questionnaire with some questions that we ask you to complete imperatively at least 24 hours before your appointment.
This questionnaire will enable us, on the one hand, to make a prior analysis of your file and to consider the solutions for each file.
Thus, we can devote the duration of the consultation to ask for some additional details, and especially to explain your options in detail.
Also, at the end of the consultation and when some explained procedures are technical (for example : declaration of marriage or legal cohabitation/ recognition of paternity/ economic migration), we will send you a short note describing all the different steps of the procedure and conditions in order to give you the opportunity to think about it and to come to a decision to start the process in full knowledge of the facts.
Immigration Law fees
Each consultation is mostly 30 minutes long and is invoiced 125 euro. Once we read through the file, often after the first consultation, we usually work on a flat rate regarding the standard procedures (family reunification, nationality, residence permit…). The purpose is to apply transparency and our client will be aware from the start how much the procedure will cost. Obviously, there is on flat rate for each procedure initiated.
In case of, after the introduction of a first procedure, a new one is necessary, there will be an additional invoicing.
However, we apply different rates for the subjects included in the framework of international mobility. The processing of these applications being particularly technical, the duration of the appointments will be extended to 1 hour and the fee is then 200 euros.
Family Law fees
Each consultation is mostly 30 minutes long and is invoiced 125 euro. Once we read through the file, often after the first consultation, we usually work on a flat rate basis and then at an hourly fee for all the family law procedures involving legal proceedings (recognition of children, refusal of marriage or cohabitation, divorce, separation, etc).
This means that in this case, clients will first pay a fixed provision which includes:
- The analysis of the file
- The preparation and the writing of a request
- The deposit of the request
- The initial hearing
Depending on the result of the hearing:
- Either we obtain directly a decision and nothing else is due, the file is closed.
- Either we must conclude, and several hearings are required
In the latter case, we turn to an hourly billing for hours worked on the defence of your case (175 euro per hour) and an overview is sent each month to the client with details of the hours worked with an intermediate statement of fee.
