How our UK immigration lawyers can help

At the Immigration Advice Service, our lawyers specialise in a wide range of UK visa, nationality and asylum applications and have represented clients in various successful complex and high-profile cases. We can provide advice, practical assistance and professional representation to guide you through the application and decision-making process from start to finish. Whatever service you are looking for, we can help.

Our experienced nation-wide immigration lawyers have an exemplary track record in applying for Family Visas, Partner and Spouse Visas, including Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 4 and Tier 5 visa applications under the UK’s five-tier points-based system.

Our expert advisors often have more hands-on experience of immigration and asylum cases than even the UK’s most highly-qualified immigration solicitors and can offer advice and assistance in applications to extend your stay in the UK. This includes Indefinite Leave to Remain, EEA family permit applications for relatives of European nationals, and applications for British citizenship.

We are also leading voices on Brexit and industry and have provided in-depth insight for various publications on how Brexit and other political policies will impact the UK. Our staff’s work has been featured in The Huffington Post, The Guardian and The Telegraph.

As leading experts and advisers to UK immigration solicitors, the Immigration Advice Service also offers an extensive range of corporate immigration services for entrepreneurs, overseas investors, businesses, employers, recruiters, and education providers.

As well as making private and corporate applications for clients, the Immigration Advice Service conducts publically funded work for asylum-seekers, domestic-abuse survivors and victims of trafficking. IAS has a Legal Aid Agency Specialist Quality Mark (SQM).

We offer specialist advice and assistance for those wanting to work or set up a business in the UK and can advise employers on obtaining a sponsor licence if they are seeking to recruit migrant workers on a UK visa or work permit.

We can assist carriers and hauliers in meeting their legal obligations, as well as others operating international transport services to the UK, and can offer education providers guidance on enrolling foreign students on a Student Visa.

We have a nationwide network of immigration advice centres, and we provide immigration support across Britain. Many of our lawyers qualified immigration solicitors, and all are OISC trained and regulated.

Our highly qualified and fully accredited immigration advisors have extensive knowledge of all key immigration legislation. All our lawyers and caseworkers undergo regular accredited training to keep abreast of any changes, including Home Office policy, practice and procedures, as well as in the Immigration and Asylum Tribunal. Particularly in these politically turbulent times, this is a key factor which makes IAS’ staff the best UK immigration lawyers on offer.

What will an IAS immigration lawyer do?

Our services range from advice sessions — where a lawyer will assess your eligibility and initial requirements — to full application and appeal support packages. Our packages are entirely unique to each individual; crafted around specific situations and needs.

As part of our service, you will be assigned an immigration lawyer who suits your needs. This means that we will pair you with a caseworker who has experience within the area of immigration, nationality, corporate, EEA or asylum law which is relevant to you.

Once you have been assigned an adviser, they will work closely with you to assess your immigration needs and goals. They will then provide in-depth immigration advice based on your circumstances and provide you with detailed notes on the documents, evidence and application forms you will need for an application.

If you proceed with an application with your lawyer, they will continue working with you, assisting you through each step of your application. They will help you source, gather and organise your supporting documents and evidence, filing it into a comprehensive application portfolio. This will present your case to Home Officials in a way which is easy to navigate, read and process. Once this is completed, your lawyer will write a detailed Letter of Representation to support your application. This letter, which builds upon specific case-law, immigration legislation and Home Office guidelines, will address the Home Office directly. The letter will discuss the merits of your case, pleading that your application is viable and reasonable.

Your UK-based immigration lawyer will then complete and submit all your application forms and documents on your behalf, ensuring they meet the standard which is demanded by the Home Office.

Once your full application bundle has been submitted, your lawyer will then continue to communicate with the Home Office on your behalf, until a result has been reached. Once a decision has been made, your lawyer will inform you of it immediately.

With the Immigration Advice Service, you will receive the absolute highest quality of care, support and legal guidance. All our lawyers are the best in their fields, and this is demonstrated by our success rates and reviews.

Frequently Asked Questions

Each immigration case is different and requires different routes and processing times. Consequently, there is no fixed price to enter or settle in the UK. It is impossible to predict how much the guidance of an immigration lawyer is going to cost. Nevertheless, hiring an expert will make your application less stressful.

With the help of IAS’ immigration lawyers, you can avoid unpleasant situations, such as having your application delayed or rejected. This means that you will be less likely to spend further time and money on a new application or an appeal.

Immigration lawyers are professionals who use their knowledge of UK immigration law to provide their clients with dedicated advice. They offer guidance on complex matters such as UK visa applications, settlement status and British citizenship registration, business immigration law, and deportation issues.

At IAS, our OISC-qualified experts are trained to help you and your family navigate through the process of emigrating or settling in the UK.

Seeking the help of a professional immigration lawyer is an essential step to ensure that your application is completed correctly without the risk of being rejected.
