Is it a legal requirement to hire an immigration lawyer?
No, it is not a legal requirement to hire an immigration lawyer to assist with your visa application.
However, it is highly recommended for a multitude of reasons. This is because many people inevitably fail when attempting to fulfil visa applications by themselves. The UK’s immigration system is incredibly complex to navigate without a legal professional. A visa refusal does not come with a refund either, so a failed attempt could put you out of pocket too.
You could seek an appeal if you believe your visa has been unfairly refused. But this is rare, and the appeals process is notoriously slow. In most cases, you will be advised simply to start again with your entire application.
In addition, visa requirements vary from person to person, and from visa to visa. Meeting the requirements largely depends on your individual circumstances. For instance, most people will need to earn above £25,000 to qualify for a Skilled Worker Visa. However, if you are someone in a specific job role, or in a transnational company, or you can fill a job that is classed as ‘in shortage’ in the UK, you may be able to gain a Work Visa with a lower salary.
It is clear to see that hiring an immigration professional minimises all these risks and, further still, eases the burden of the paperwork. Hiring an IAS immigration lawyer will provide a streamlined process of what can be a stressful time.
Do your lawyers in Shipley offer Spouse Visa immigration advice?
Yes, our lawyers in Shipley, regularly assist people in their Spouse Visa applications.
If you are married to someone who is an overseas national and you are a settled person (i.e. with British citizenship or Indefinite Leave to Remain), you can apply to sponsor your wife/husband/civil partner to come and live with you in the UK. However, the application is arguably one of the most difficult and complex visa applications in the entire points-based-system. For this reason, our immigration lawyers in Shipley specialise in Spouse Visa application support. Your IAS lawyer will identify your eligibility and help you to gather evidence to support your claim.
It is understandable that some people would rather attempt to fulfil their UK Visa application without professional support. That’s why, in this case, we offer comprehensive Appeal Support – even if you sent your initial application off with another immigration law firm.
However, an appeal may not be the best course of action for you. It may be easier, and cheaper, to submit your application from scratch again.
Get in touch with the IAS to book an appointment with one of our lawyers today. From there, our solicitors can advise you honestly about what you next steps should be.
Yes, we can help you renew or extend any visa providing it is a visa that can be renewed.
Some visa categories do not allow renewals, such as some Tier 1 visas.
It is also important to note that you will be expected to meet the visa requirements and eligibility criteria again when extending or renewing. The level of requirements does not decrease the longer you stay in the UK.
