Is a Visa service worth it?

I need suggestions for a reputable Visa service (I did check the archives, but the questions are all about four years old). I also need to know if using a Visa service is worth the fees (about $100). I am terrible with paperwork, deadlines, etc. and the idea of trying to do all this myself is giving me hives. On the other hand, I don't want to pay a service to mail some things for me.
Details/things I would hope a service might do for me or help me with:
--Going to South Africa from February-December as a postgraduate student.
--Husband is going as my spouse (an extended visitor's visa).
--I still have no official confirmation that I was accepted to UCT and my online acceptance has my name spelled wrong.
--We need to be there by February 7, 2013.
--Husband is a resident of a different state than I am and may also have to change his flight after we submit our visa forms (due to a medical issue).
--We have bits and pieces of the items needed to apply (medical forms, but no background check, for example). Those can be acquired in the next week or so, but will a service help us with that kind of thing?
