Immigration Law is an area of Law that can be complex as it is subject to constant changes and therefore it is important that you choose right and reliable legal advice to assist you in your immigration needs.  It was said by The Minister, the Lord Taylor of Holbeach, in the debate on 12 December 2012 “I agree with my noble friend that no area is more complex than the whole business of the Immigration Rules and the procedures surrounding them".

Where necessary we instruct experienced Counsels who are able to advice and represent you in any immigration appeal matters at the First or Upper Tribunal of the Immigration Chamber including Applications, Representations and Submissions to the High Court for Judicial Review in any part of the United Kingdom. We pride ourselves in providing high quality advice and ensuring that the clients’ interest is at the heart of our work.

It is imperative that professional legal advice is taken and all applications are submitted in accordance with the rules and the current policy guidance of the Home Office to avoid refusal. Many people fail to realize that refusals frequently occur when Applicants have not had professional or proper legal advice.

If your appeal is refused there are strict time limits to lodge your appeal. You should seek immediate legal advice to ensure that your case is best prepared and is in compliant with the Immigration rules. It is also possible to submit further documents to the Entry Clearance Officer for reconsideration in order to avoid a hearing in Court. In the event that the matter proceeds to Court we will prepare a Trial Bundle on your behalf and present this to the Tribunal. If your appeal is successful the Home Office will usually grant the necessary leave or visa, unless they appeal the matter further to the Upper Tribunal. If your appeal is refused you may be able to appeal to the Upper Tribunal on a point of law

At Baileys you can be rest assured that you will receive high quality tailored advice. We advise on the following application and we have provided where possible our fixed competitive professional fees
