Do I need an immigration solicitor in Friern Barnet if I want to make an application?
You can make all forms of immigration application yourself, without legal help. However, it is greatly recommended that you instruct legal representation when making any form of application to the Home Office.
This is because the decision-making branch of the Home Office is very stringent and prone to refusing applications with discrepancies or gaps. If an application is refused and you did not have the help of a caseworker when making it, you will not be eligible for any form of refund and you will need to undergo a fresh application.
Having the help of an immigration lawyer in Friern Barnet means you can get your application right the first time. A lawyer will assess your eligibility for the category you wish to apply under, as well as ensure that you have enough supporting evidence to support your case.
They will also help you source this evidence, submitting Subject Access Data requests on your behalf if you need this. They will then collate all this evidence for you, and file into a case portfolio. This presents your application in a way that allows reviewing Home Office caseworkers to understand it and ensures they do not miss any vital information. For applications that require a large amount of supporting evidence (such as applications for Spouse Visas) this service is hugely beneficial.
As well as doing all this, having the assistance of a legal representative is invaluable when it comes to understanding Home Office requirements and changing immigration legislation. If you need immigration advice in Friern Barnet, you should consider getting the help of an experienced lawyer before you undertake any applications.

I want to come to the UK but I don’t know how – can you give me advice?
Our immigration lawyers in Friern Barnet offer one-off advice services in person, over the phone, and via video call.
This service includes an untimed session. We do not time our advice session as we want our clients to feel at ease and as though they have enough time to understand the advice they are being given as well as ask questions and go over anything they are unsure about.
During the session, your immigration lawyer can outline your different options, depending on your personal circumstances, goals, and timeframes. They will find out your background, how long you have to make an application when you want to come to the UK, and for what purpose (e.g to join a partner or spouse, to work, to study, for a holiday, etc).
They will then outline your requirements for each potential route, as well as the application processes for each one.
Your lawyer will also advise you on the documents you need to include in your application to meet the Home Office’s criteria and have your application approved.
Once you feel confident that you understand the advice being given, you will receive a document which details this advice. This is yours to keep. As well as this, you’ll also have a 7 day period after your session has finished during which you can ask questions about the advice given and the routes that have been outlined for you.
