Do you Northumberland Heath lawyers assist with Indefinite Leave to Remain applications?

To become eligible for ILR you will need to have lived in the UK for a specified amount of time, the length of time depends on the route you are taking to ILR.

- Passing the Life in the UK test
- Proving you can meet the good character requirement
- Demonstrating your knowledge of the English language
- Being over the age of 18
