Individual Immigration

Welcoming you to the UK

Our immigration solicitors & barristers can manage your visa application to help ensure success.

A ‘Family of a Settled Person’ visa or a Spouse visa as it is more commonly known, allows nationals from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland who are married (or in a Civil Partnership) to British nationals or those who hold settled status in the UK to enter or remain in the UK with their partner.

If you reside outside the UK and wish to join your husband/wife or civil partner in the UK, you can apply for entry clearance or if you are already in the UK you can make an application to extend your stay in the UK as the ‘family of a settled person’.

Our immigration solicitors are regularly instructed to assist in the preparation and submission of a spouse/civil partner visa application, either in the UK or abroad. Our team are ready to meet with you in person or via Skype to consider whether you meet the eligibility requirements and once instructed will liaise with you in preparing your visa application with the requisite supporting documentation.

The UK fiancé visa or UK marriage visa permits a person who has settled status in the UK to bring their prospective spouse to the UK with the intention of getting married. The visa is issued for six months, during which time the applicant will need to get married.

After the marriage, the applicant can apply for a spouse visa before the expiry of their visa by making an application for further leave to remain from inside the UK, which grants the visa holder conditional permanent resident status and allows them to remain in the UK initially for two years.

Our immigration solicitors are regularly instructed to assist in the preparation of fiancé / marriage visa applications. Our team are ready to meet with you in person or via Skype to consider whether you meet the eligibility requirements and once instructed will liaise with you in preparing your visa application with the requisite supporting documentation.

Our expert team of immigration lawyers routinely assist in the preparation of EEA Family Permits and EEA Residence Cards for family members of EEA nationals.

An EEA Family Permit is a document issued to non-EEA family members of EEA nationals; this allows the permit holder to travel to the UK with their EEA national family member or to join them in the UK. You should apply for a family permit ahead of your travel to the UK and it is valid for 6 months. If you wish to continue to reside in the UK with your EEA family member, you must apply for an EEA Residence Card which if granted will allow you to reside in the UK with your EEA national family member for a period of 5 years. The EEA Residence Card will also allow you to work in the UK and help prove you qualify for certain benefits and services.

If you wish to join your EEA national family member in the UK or apply to remain in the UK as the family member of an EEA national, our team are ready to meet with you in person or via Skype to consider whether you meet the eligibility requirements. Once our expert lawyers are instructed, we will liaise with you in preparing your EEA application with the requisite supporting documentation.

The UK’s Immigration Rules relating to Adult Dependent Relatives allow elderly parents or grandparents of permanent UK residents and British citizens to apply to join their family in the UK. Over the years, the UK government has introduced stringent criteria which you will need to meet in order to make a successful application. The Home Office’s complex guidance in this area confirms that there is an extensive amount of documentary evidence required from applicants to meet the complex requirements for an Adult Dependant Relative visa.

Our immigration solicitors can help you prepare an application for an Adult Dependant Relative and have previously assisted clients who have been granted a visa in the first instance. We pride ourselves in providing tailored immigration services for individuals wishing to reunite with their families in the UK and are on hand to analyse your case to consider the merits of such an application.

The UK is ranked as one of the top ten destinations in the world whilst London has the most international visitors of any city in the world. The UK government recognises the importance of tourism to the British economy and offers the Standard Visitor visa for those wishing to visit the UK for leisure, business or other reasons.

Our expert immigration team of solicitors are ready to meet with you in person or via Skype to consider whether you meet the eligibility requirements. Our lawyers often consult with clients who have had their visit visa refused in the past due to their lack of understanding of the immigration rules and what documentation is required for a visit visa application.

There is a very limited right to appeal so it is advisable to consult with a qualified immigration solicitor to ensure that you submit a properly executed visit visa application.

The UK Immigration Rules are designed to cover the vast majority of circumstances in which you could be granted leave to remain because you are entitled to remain in the UK. However, there are also provisions for those who do not fit into a specific category and may allow some migrants to apply for leave to remain in the UK in exceptional circumstances.

Article 8 of the ECHR is one of the most important of the Convention rights. It provides the right to respect for four protected areas namely, private life, family life, home and correspondence. Our expert immigration solicitors and barristers have represented many clients who are unable to leave the UK for a variety of reasons such as they face disruption in their family life in the UK or if returned to their country of origin, they face racial, religious or sex discrimination.

Our team of immigration solicitors and barristers understand the complexity of such applications; the Immigration Rules, policies and Home Office guidance can be somewhat difficult to understand and case law is constantly changing. We have considerable experience of assisting clients in complex situations and understand that there are a number of reasons why a migrant may need to apply for leave to remain outside the Immigration Rules.#

The UK’s Immigration Rules and Regulations coupled with the Home Office’s extensive guidance on visa applications can be quite complex to understand. Our individual immigration team are routinely instructed by clients who have had their visa applications refused either because the Home Office are not satisfied that they meet the requirements or that their applications are not accompanied with the proper documentation.

Our immigration solicitors and barristers understand that this can be a very stressful time in a migrant’s life especially when they have to consider the impact the refusal will have on their business, work and family life.

On the occasions where clients have consulted with our team after their visa has been refused, our immigration team have been able to assess their situation and consider their options relating to challenging a decision by appealing to the First-tier Tribunal or thereafter to the Upper Tribunal. In exceptional circumstances, there may also be grounds to challenge the Home Office’s decision by way of a Judicial Review.

If you have had a visa application refused and wish to consider your options of challenging the Home Office’s decision, please contact a member of our dedicated immigration team so we can arrange for you to meet with an experienced immigration solicitor who can consider your options with you.
