Can IAS’ lawyers in Keston help me with my Spouse Visa?
Absolutely. All our immigration lawyers are familiar with the complex requirements surrounding family immigration law. We understand how important is to be with your loved ones.
However, the Spouse Visa has a notorious reputation. It can be difficult to obtain due to its lengthy requirements and rigorous barriers. For instance, not only must you demonstrate you speak a certain level of English and have a certain amount of savings, but you must pass what the Home Office calls the ‘genuine relationship’ test.
IAS’ immigration lawyers in Keston assist Spouse Visa applicants every single day. We can help you to prepare for the Home Office’s tests while also ensuring that you meet the requirements and have a substantial portfolio of evidence supporting your claim.

The Immigration Advice Service is well-versed in all areas of corporate and business immigration law. We assist businesses in securing their Sponsor Licence so that they can hire overseas talent – just like you.

Our Keston lawyers will help you secure your Certificate of Sponsorship from a UK employer as well as help you with your application. We will ensure that you meet all of the requirements and will even send a Letter of Recommendation to the Home Office that supports your claim.
The length of time it may take for the Home Office to process your UK Visa largely depends upon your individual circumstances, such as where you apply from, and which visa you are applying for.
Generally speaking, a visa can take at least eight weeks to be processed. However, any complications that arise out of your application may see your verdict delayed – if not rejected.
If you need a decision on your visa urgently, such as you have an important event to attend to or your visa is due to expire, you can opt for the Home Office’s Premium Service which aims to deliver your visa in a much faster turnaround. However, it is important to note that this is usually a lot more expensive.
If you need to send your application quickly, the Immigration Advice Service can also help you. We have a 24-hour Fast Track service in which you can meet your immigration lawyer and have your application fulfilled to the highest standard before submitting it to the Home Office on the same day.
