Immigration Solicitors

Whatever your reason for coming to the United Kingdom, an immigration solicitor can help you decipher the Immigration Rules and Home Office guidance on immigration.

Visa routes to the United Kingdom are extensive and can be complex. Where more than one option applies to you, it is often difficult to know which is best for your situation and needs.

It is important that you have a clear understanding of what is required by the Home Office to grant a UK visa whether you are looking to come to the UK from overseas, or whether you are already here and need to extend your stay.

You can apply for a visa for the UK if you want to come to the UK:

  • as a visitor, to visit family or friends or as a tourist;
  • to work or to start a business;
  • as a student;
  • to settle here with family.

You might also need immigration advice if you:

  • want to sponsor somebody to come to the UK, either as a visitor or for work;
  • bring a family member here to visit or live with you;
  • understand what options you have for staying in the UK.

Important things to consider

It can often be hard to know where to start when applying for a visa. It is important that you understand what is expected of you as taking the wrong course of action could have disastrous consequences on your rights in the UK, and could result in:

  • wasting significant amounts of time, and money on failed applications;
  • having your application returned as invalid;
  • having your application refused;
  • being prevented from entering the UK;
  • being removed from the United Kingdom;
  • being banned from re-entering the UK.

Having to appeal or apply for a review of a refusal can be costly, and can delay future plans. In some cases you might not be allowed to appeal a refusal at all. So the assistance of a qualified immigration solicitor is essential from the outset.
