Immigration advice for individuals

Our immigration solicitors are experienced immigration advisors and are able to advise on a range of individual matters. Whether it is spouse visas, EEA and citizenship applications, asylum, our immigration advisors are here to guide you through from start to finish.  

If you have settled status in the UK, have Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) or are a British national wanting your fiancé, husband, wife or family member join you in the UK, our expert immigration advisors have the knowledge and expertise to provide immigration advice, practical assistance and an outstanding level of service from beginning to end. Our number one goal is to provide the best immigration advice that is tailored to your own personal circumstances.

Our Coventry immigration solicitors will take the stress out of the visa application process, as we will guide you from the very start to the very end. Below is the standard process in which we provide expert immigration advice to our clients.

1.     You will attend a free immigration advice session

We are happy to provide a free immigration advice session with an experienced immigration lawyer. This can be either in our office, over the phone or via Skype. As we know the Immigration Rules inside out, we can advise on the best visa application to make depending on your own very personal circumstances. We can also advise on the general documentation required and answer any queries that you may have. Our initial immigration advice sessions are free, and come at no cost to you. Importantly, we do not pressure you to engage us and they are no obligation.

2.     We will complete the application forms for you

The immigration forms that the Home Office require you complete are often filled with complex and confusing words. A simple mistake here can result in a refusal, which in turn has a crushing impact on any future UK immigration applications. This is why we have spent a considerable amount of time creating a simple questionnaire so it is easy for you to let us know of your details. Once this is handed back to us, this allows us to complete the form for you by our immigration lawyers, so you can rest assured that everything is completed correctly.

3.     We will assist you with gathering the best supporting evidence

Our immigration solicitors will then assist you by providing a comprehensive list of documents for you to gather, together with guidance that helps you to obtain the correct evidence. The Home Office impose strict and sometimes strange rules regarding specific documents. As we are aware of each of these rules, we will ensure that you have the best chance of application success.

4.     We will finish the application pack

Once your immigration solicitor has ensured that everything is in order, they will combine the completed application form & the supporting documents into an application pack. This, along with a legal covering letter, will then be double-checked by another member of staff.

5.     We will then complete the other tasks required to submit the application

Our immigration solicitors will then perform the necessary formalities that is required to submit the application on websites such as the Visa4uk website, if required. They will also pay the Immigration Health Surcharge (IHS) on your behalf, if that application requires it.

6.     We will then submit the application pack

Once the above has been done, your immigration solicitor will then subnmit the application in accordance with the Immigration Rules and handle any communications with the Home Office, when they make contact. We will inform you when your visa has been granted. In the minority of cases, where there has been a refusal, we will inform you with your potential options.

Immigration Advice for Businesses

Our immigration advisors also offer a wealth of immigration advice in relation to many areas of businesses.

We are happy to help small to medium sized businesses with any immigration business related matters, including:

  1. Tiers 1 to 5
  2. Entrepreneur business immigration advice
  3. Investor visa guidance
  4. Ensuring that your business is compliant with Home Office visits
  5. Sponsorship licences; and
  6. Sole representative of an Overseas Business Visa

Our Immigration Solicitors can provide the solution to your immigration problems

1. We Have maintained a high client satisfaction level for several years

We understand that you or your family’s visa application is something that is incredibly important. It is for this reason why we ensure that every application that our immigration solicitors prepare is absolutely the best application possible. We are not immigration lawyers who treat your case as just a number. Rather, a large amount of our time is spent drafting legal supporting letters that are addressed to the UK Home Office & double-checking the small details. It is these legal supporting letters where we clearly state what the law is and how they apply to your case. With us, you can rest assured that you will be provided with the best chance of a positive visa outcome.

2. We have clear & fair legal fees with no hidden costs

We can appreciate why many people are scared of even walking into an immigration lawyer’s office. However, with us, you can be confident that our fees are clear and are made known to you well before you have to pay us a penny. In addition to up-front fees, we also offer free initial immigration advice consultations, where we will talk about your personal circumstances.

3. We will take the stress out of immigration

We know that most people know very little about UK and European visas. We will inform you from very early on exactly what the procedure is and what to expect. You will have your own personal immigration solicitor to speak with when any questions arise.

4. We will remain available for you to speak to, throughout the process

If you have any questions at all about your case, or on any matter such as the visa process, processing times etc. we are here to help!
