What do lawyers charge in general for D2 visa?


Does anyone know roughly how much a Portuguese lawyer should charge to process a D2 visa application (entrepreneurial visa) for 1 person?

I am asking this question because I do not want to get overcharged by lawyers when it comes to applying for a D2 visa.

I was given a quote by a certain company of £5,000 for legal fees for D2 visa processing of solely my application.

  • £750 legal fees for my spouse
    *£750 per child (I have 2 children, aged 5 and 7 years old).

Hence, totalling £7,250 for the whole family in legal fees only.

Plus additional costs as follows (includes the cost for 4 people);

  • Health insurance = €1600
  • Consular fee = €360
  • Application fee = €336
  • Issuance of a card = €292
  • Total Cost=€2,588

Grand total cost= €7250 + €2588
= €9838 (for 4 people)

This quote sounds extortionate to me.
