Immigration and asylum laws can be challenging to navigate, especially if you find yourself alone in a country that you know very little about. We can help. We can take you through the immigration and asylum processes, help gather evidence and support your claim to stay in the UK. Our team of legal experts can help in a variety of cases, including:
Article 8 Claims
Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights deals with your right as a human to maintain and develop relationships with others. If you are claiming asylum under Article 8, we can help. We can work with you to provide evidence of your connections in the UK and the detrimental effects of not maintaining these bonds.
To claim asylum to stay in the UK, you must prove that returning home would risk your life or well-being through persecution. You must claim asylum as soon as possible on arriving or the circumstances in your home country changing. While the Home Office makes the decision, we can support your application and ensure your rights are upheld at every stage.
If your right to remain or your asylum application is turned down, we can help you appeal deportation. Not everyone can appeal, and much depends on your circumstances and the reason for deportation. We can work through the legal minefield and provide the best advice, guidance and representation.
EEA matters and applications under the Settled Status Scheme
There is a great deal of uncertainty for those from the EEA who have settled in England. If you are required to prove your status or need legal advice following a decision on your settled status, we can help. Our legal team is experienced in all matters related to immigration and will provide you with the best possible chance to win your case.
Immigration law is extraordinarily complex, and fresh claims can only be made once you have exhausted your right to appeal. Our team can advise on whether you can make an effective fresh claim and help you submit appropriate evidence.
Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery
If you are a victim of human trafficking or slavery, the world can be a terrifying place where you may be unsure of your rights and whether you can stay in the country safely. Our legal team includes experts in this area. We will approach your case with sensitivity and empathy, helping you find your way through the legal maze and supporting you through the immigration and asylum process, as well as representing you in any ongoing investigation.
Immigration Tribunal Representation
If your immigration application is refused, you can usually appeal the decision at an immigration tribunal. However, it is essential that your appeal is handled correctly and that adequate evidence is presented to support your case. We are experts in immigration tribunals at the First and Upper tier. We will represent your interests throughout the entire appeals process.
Immigration and Asylum Appeals
Navigating the appeals process for immigration and asylum applications is not easy. How you appeal depends on whether you are appealing from inside or outside the UK. Having proper representation and support makes it more likely that you will get a positive outcome. We have the skills and experience needed to guide, advise and represent you through every stage of the appeals process.
A judicial review of your immigration or asylum case reviews the facts, evidence and how the decision was reached. It is not intended to challenge the decision itself. However, if there is a flaw in the process, it may allow you to appeal the decision. We can represent you during the judicial review and ensure that your case and evidence are heard and judged fairly.
Naturalisation and Nationality Matters
Becoming a British citizen can be a complex process depending on your circumstances, including your nationality at birth, your current immigration status and your relationships within the UK. Our legal team have experience in all aspects of naturalisation and nationality matters and can support you through the application process.
Points Based Applications
Following Brexit, EU citizens wanting to live and work in the UK must follow the same points-based system as non-EU citizens. The system requires you to amass enough points before being considered for a visa. Your work status, education and your language skills are all taken into consideration in the points system. There are numerous paths you can take, and our legal team can help you find the way that best fits your skills and career expectations.
If you need professional support and assistance navigating the UK immigration Visa process, we can help. Our team can support you with queries, applications, extensions and appeals. If you don't know how to get started, we are your best first step.
If you wish to come to the UK to work, you will most likely need a Work Permit. The conditions attached to the permit and the application process depend on several things. We can take you through the process and ensure that you apply for the correct type of visa, reducing your time, stress, and costs.
