Immigration

Immigration Law is an involved and complex area of Law which is subject to constant changes and therefore it is important that you choose the correct and reliable legal advice to assist you in your immigration needs, without which Immigration Applications can be destined for refusals.  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". With this in mind we, at Baileys Solicitors, provide tailored and thorough professional advice whereby we give all Immigration Applications great attention to detail and prepare them with great care and diligence.

Wherever necessary and with our Clients’ authority, we instruct experienced Counsels (Barristers)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 always ensuring that the Clients’ interests are always put first.

It is imperative that professional legal advice is sought when any Immigration Application is made and that all applications are submitted in accordance with the rules and the current policy guidance of the Home Office to avoid refusals of Applications. Many people fail to realize that refusals frequently occur when Applicants have not had professional or proper legal advice, or had their Applications prepared thoroughly or in an organised manner with adequate evidence submitted to properly demonstrate their status and circumstances.

If your appeal is refused, then there are strict time limits to lodge your appeal. You should seek immediate legal advice in order to ensure that your case is best prepared and is complicit with the Immigration rules. It is also possible to submit further documents to the Entry Clearance Officer for reconsideration, in order to avoid an Appeal Hearing in Court. In the event that the matter proceeds to Court, we can assist in preparing a Trial Bundle on your behalf and present this to the Tribunal. If your Appeal is successful then the Home Office will usually grant the necessary Leave to Remain in the UK or Visa, unless they (The Home Office) appeal the matter further to the Upper Tribunal. In the event that your appeal is refused you may be able to Appeal to the Upper Tribunal on a point of law.
