Is it a legal requirement to hire an immigration lawyer?
It is not a legal requirement to hire an immigration lawyer to assist with your visa application.
However, it is highly recommended for a multitude of reasons. This is because many people inevitably fail when attempting to fulfil visa applications by themselves. The UK’s immigration system is incredibly complex to navigate without a legal professional. A visa refusal does not come with a refund either, so a failed attempt could put you out of pocket too.
You could seek an appeal if you believe your visa has been unfairly refused. But this is rare, and the appeals process is notoriously slow. In most cases, you will be advised simply to start again with your entire application.
In addition, visa requirements vary from person to person, and from visa to visa. Meeting the requirements largely depends on your individual circumstances. For instance, most people will need to earn above £25,000 to qualify for a Skilled Worker Visa. However, if you are someone in a specific job role, or in a transnational company, or you can fill a job that is classed as ‘in shortage’ in the UK, you may be able to gain a Work Visa with a lower salary.
It is clear to see that hiring an immigration professional minimises all these risks and, further still, eases the burden of the paperwork. Hiring an IAS immigration lawyer will provide a streamlined process of what can be a stressful time.
Do your lawyers in Brigham offer Spouse Visa immigration advice?
Yes, our lawyers in Brigham regularly assist people in their Spouse Visa applications.
If you are married to someone who is an overseas national and you are a settled person (i.e. with British citizenship or Indefinite Leave to Remain), you can apply to sponsor your wife/husband/civil partner to come and live with you in the UK. However, the application is arguably one of the most difficult and complex visa applications in the entire points-based-system. For this reason, our immigration lawyers in Brigham specialise in Spouse Visa application support. Your IAS lawyer will identify your eligibility and help you to gather evidence to support your claim.
Individual immigration law firms offer different ranges of services. Some immigration lawyers only offer a limited number of services, whereas others, like the IAS, offer support in all areas of immigration law.
That being said, most immigration lawyers will offer support with Indefinite Leave to Remain applications. Here at the IAS, we are vastly experienced in applications for Indefinite Leave to Remain and understand what it takes to formulate a successful application.
The main requirements for Indefinite Leave to Remain are as follows:
- Must have been lawfully living in the UK for a certain period of time, typically five years
- Must not have breached any immigration condition (or broken any law) during your time in the UK
- Must have achieved a pass in the Life in the UK test
- Must not have spent more than 180 days outside of the UK in a 12-month period
- Must be able to prove that your English language ability is at the level of B1 as set by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages in speaking, writing, listening, and reading

In the event that you need to visit the UK, regardless of whether it is for a brief timeframe, you may have to apply for a visa.
In any case, on the off chance that you are from outside this zone, you should apply for a visa to visit the UK. The Standard Visitor Visa is the ideal alternative for individuals who are hoping to visit the UK for a brief period.
With this visa, you can stay in the UK for as long as 90 days as a traveller and to see loved ones.
