Do Denmark Hill Immigration Solicitors Assist with Indefinite Leave to Remain Applications?
There are many immigration solicitors operating in the south London area. Some immigration solicitors only offer assistance in a few areas of immigration law, whereas others offer a wider range of services.
Our Denmark Hill immigration lawyers offer assistance in all areas of immigration law, including settlement applications such as Indefinite Leave to Remain.
To be eligible for Indefinite Leave to Remain, you must have spent at least a certain period of time lawfully living in the UK, typically five years.
In some circumstances, you could be eligible sooner. For instance, if you have lived in the UK under an Innovator Visa or Investor Visa, you could be eligible after just three years of UK residence, or even two.
As well as the minimum residency requirement, you will need to meet the following conditions:
- You must not have spent more than 180 days outside of the UK in a 12-month period during your UK residency
- You must not have broken any law or immigration conditions during your UK residency
- You must have received a pass in the Life in the UK test. The Life in the UK test is a series of questions based on the culture, customs and history of the UK
- You must 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
We can help you through the entire application process for Indefinite Leave to Remain with our application package.
One of our immigration caseworkers will help you to prepare your crucial portfolio of evidence and will fill out all relevant application forms. Also, they will write a letter of representation to highlight the merits of your case, before submitting your full application to the Home Office.
We are confident in saying that we will maximise your chances of receiving settled status in the UK. Call us now on 0330 433 1213 to find out more.

You could be eligible for the Spouse Visa if you are married to/in a civil partnership with a UK citizen or person with settled status.

You must fulfil a number of requirements in order to be eligible for a Spouse Visa, and you will need to provide substantial evidence to prove your eligibility.
The requirements for the Spouse Visa are as follows:
- Must be at least 18-years-old

- Must meet the genuine relationship requirement
- Must have lived with your partner for at least two years

You will need to apply for a visa if you wish to visit London, even if you only plan to visit for a short period of time.
The Standard Visitor Visa is the ideal option if you want to visit the UK for up to six months. This visa is valid for six months and enables you to travel throughout the United Kingdom as a tourist and to visit family and friends.
If you do wish to visit London, it is prudent to hire an immigration solicitor to complete your visitor visa application form.
