I understand the importance of legal professionals in different bureaucratic tasks, but hiring a lawyer for Tier 1 Exceptional Talent Visa application is not the regular case to think about. I got a question regarding this issue, so I decided to write it and my answer here. Hopefully, it will be useful for other future applicants.
I am not sure whether I should contact solicitor because it is too expensive to cover. Thus, I would like to ask you about reaching to a solicitor.
Could you share the information if you contact a solicitor before submission or to submit your application? Do you think that it is compulsory (essential) to be appointed for the visa?
You are entirely right – the prices for this unique type of visa are very high, and they do not guarantee a positive outcome. If they say that they guarantee – they lie. Every application is confidential and is assessing by an independent board of experts at Tech City UK.
