Why do I need an immigration solicitor?

The help of an immigration solicitor or lawyer will greatly improve the chances of an successful outcome with your visa application. This is because they offer valuable legal insight and an understanding of immigration law jargon.

They will ensure that your application has been filled out correctly, with no mistakes or gaps in information. This is of vital importance, as immigration officials will reject applications that have gaps or issues.

An immigration solicitor can also put your mind at ease. Making an application to UKVI/ the Home Office can be complex and time-consuming. Having an immigration lawyer takes the stress out of the application process. An immigration lawyer will take charge of the application, supporting evidence and cover letter, meaning that you can get on with your life.

Why choose our immigration lawyers?

Our Edinburgh immigration lawyers are highly-talented and skilled. As a result, they are equipped to deal with any advice, application or appeal query.

As part of our services, you will be given an immigration lawyer who can deal with your particular immigration query in the best way. Your lawyer will talk you through your next steps, your options and the requirements you need to meet. Following on from this, they will begin gathering and collating your supporting evidence. Once they have done this, they will file them into you Evidence Portfolio. This is a bundle, which is comprehensive, ordered and navigable. It allows the Home Office to easily move between each section of your application, meaning that they do not miss any vital information or documentation.

Once your immigration lawyer has done this, they will write you a detailed cover letter — called a Letter of Representation. This document states the merits of your case and uses case-law and legislation to back it up.

Your IAS lawyer will also communicate with the Home Office, acting as a go-between for you and UKVI. When a decision has been reached by the Home Office, your lawyer will contact you straight away to update you.
