Immigration

Spouse visas

We can advise on the evidence you will need for a successful application to come to the UK to join your spouse, civil partner or unmarried partner. We will fully investigate your circumstances to see if an in-country or EEA family application might be more suitable.

Points-based system

We can advise on work-based categories under the points-based system including Tier 2(General).

If you are in the UK under the points-based system, and want your family to join you, we can advise on the most efficient route. We can also advise on your right to work once you are in the UK, and on extending your visa.

Points-based applications can be complex and you need to make sure that you submit the right paperwork. The UK Border Agency issues guidance on what is acceptable documentation, and you need to adhere to this. We can guide you through the process, or represent your interests in an application to review an incorrect decision.

European Economic Area

applications Our expertise includes advising on rights of free movement, and documentation for nationals of the European Economic Area and their families, including nationals of “Accession States” such as Bulgaria and Romania.

Routes to Citizenship

We can advise on extending your permission to stay in the UK, and on applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain or Permanent Residence. If you are in a category which could lead to British Citizenship, we can help you calculate whether you are eligible to apply, and help you make your application.

We can also advise on whether you may already have British Nationality, or if your children born in the UK will acquire it or can be registered as British Citizens.

Immigration appeals

If you have made an application to come to or remain in the UK, and it has been refused, you may have the right to appeal or to request a review of the decision.

We have a record of successful representation of clients in the appeals system, including representing clients in the Tribunal. We also offer clear and realistic advice on your options in the face of a refusal.
