Can IAS’ immigration lawyers in Charing Cross help me settle in the UK?
Our Charing Cross immigration solicitors have helped hundreds of people settle in the UK for life, including those who have opted to become full British citizens.
Our British citizenship and settlement packages are in-depth and include the organisation of your supporting evidence, help with the Life in the UK test, and support with meeting your English requirements.
It also includes a detailed assessment of your time spent in the UK to ensure that you meet the continuous residency requirement which is outlined by the Home Office. Your lawyer will assess that you meet this, and then create a portfolio of evidence to show the Home Office that you meet this.
After this, they will write a Letter of Representation (a cover letter) which is submitted with your portfolio of evidence. This demonstrates to the Home Office the reasons for which your citizenship application should be accepted by the Home Office. Your lawyer will write this by drawing upon their in-depth knowledge of nationality law and legislation. They will also draw upon case-law to argue the merits of your case where this is necessary.

How do I find a good immigration lawyer in Charing Cross?
Knowing the difference between a bad and a good immigration lawyer can mean the difference between having your application granted or refused. With such an important decision, it is vital that you know how to select a good-quality solicitor if you need immigration advice in Charing Cross, or anywhere else in the UK?
One important thing to look out for is the proper accreditation.

Another key thing to look for when trying to find immigration solicitors in Charing Cross is experience. Our lawyers have decades of experience between them, with some of our lawyers working at the Immigration Advice Service for most of their careers, we are proud to have a team of caseworkers who can offer the highest quality legal advice in the UK.
Notably, many of our lawyers have been through the migration process themselves, which means they do not just have experience making applications for clients, but also that they understand what it’s like to go through the process first-hand. This really benefits how they conduct their services. All our lawyers are passionate about their work, and they really care about those they represent.
