    What do immigration lawyers do?

    Immigration lawyers guide you through every step of the immigration process and help you understand your rights. They can also prepare paperwork for you and make sure that you prepare and attach all the necessary documentation when applying for visas.

    Immigration lawyers validate the documents and forms you need to fill in, allowing you to avoid mistakes that could negatively affect the outcome of your visa application. Experienced lawyers have handled numerous cases similar to yours in the past, so they know what to expect from the process, how to avoid delays, and how to increase the chances of getting the desired result.

    It is of course possible to carry out independent research and find a lot of information regarding your case using the Internet. Nevertheless, a large proportion of data available online can be insufficient, and doing so requires a lot of time. Moreover, if you decide to do so, you will not have access to invaluable professional advice and you risk getting overwhelmed by the complex legal process.

    Navigating through the immigration process alone can lead to your visa application being rejected, thus separating you from your loved ones.

    What can immigration lawyers assist with?

    If you are planning on settling in the UK, immigration lawyers can provide expert advice regarding various UK visas. They assess your eligibility and requirements to advise you on what visa you should apply for, and assist with completing and submitting the application. 

    Services of an immigration lawyer differ depending on the individual needs of each client. When you decide to hire an immigration lawyer, you will be assigned a person that has relevant experience and you will work closely with them to prepare an action plan that best matches your case.

    At IAS our highly qualified UK immigration lawyers offer assistance with numerous immigration processes that include:

    IAS also has a team of reliable US immigration lawyers who can offer support in the following aras:

    • Visas for those wanting to join their families in the US
    • Visas for students wishing to study at a US-based institution
    • Visas for professionals wishing to work in the US
    • Applying for US Citizenship or Residency
    • Deportation appeals.

    There are, however, many other things immigration lawyers can help you with after you meet with them and present your situation. 

    What are the benefits of hiring an immigration lawyer?

    There are several benefits of hiring an immigration lawyer. 

    There is extensive paperwork involved in going through an immigration process and many can struggle with completing it. No matter whether you are a native English speaker or not, understanding legal terms can be difficult. An immigration lawyer can explain everything to you and answer all the questions you might have. If you are ever unsure whether certain information or evidence is needed, qualified immigration specialists will provide you with assistance. 

    No matter what your case is, immigration lawyers know how to achieve the desired outcome. They are familiar with the procedural maneuvers and opportunities that can enhance your application but that can be easily overlooked by someone who lacks experience in the field.

    Expert immigration lawyers can also suggest several options on how to proceed with your case. They will outline the possible consequences of each of them and advise as to which one has the highest chance of success. If you decide to handle immigration issues on your own, it is unlikely that you will investigate all the viable scenarios.

      Will my case be successful with an immigration lawyer?

      Although no one can guarantee that your case will be successful, the chances of a positive outcome are higher when you hire an expert immigration lawyer than when you act independently. 

      Your dedicated immigration lawyer will check and organise all the required documents and evidence, making sure that your application is accurate and complete. This will decrease the risk of your application being rejected by the Home Office. 

      The decision regarding your visa application is made by the UK Visas and Immigration in the UK or US Citizenship and Immigration Services in the US. That is why, unfortunately, your immigration lawyer has no control over the outcome. Nevertheless, when you hire a trustworthy expert, you can be sure that you will receive the highest quality services, support and legal advice. 

      Why choose one of IAS’ immigration lawyers?

      Our team of immigration lawyers has expert knowledge of the complex immigration systems in both the US and the UK. By choosing IAS, you can be assured that you will be provided with professional and transparent service. 

      Our lawyers are flexible and dedicated to saving you time so appointments with them can be organised around your schedule. During the first meeting, they will discuss your situation with you and will assess what immigration routes are best for your case. Once you have decided on how you want to proceed, they will explain in detail the whole application process and will help you gather and prepare the required documentation. 

      Your immigration lawyer will also write a Letter of Representation that you can submit with your application to enhance it. 

      IAS has offices in more than 20 cities around the UK, as well as in numerous US cities including New York City, New Jersey, Brooklyn Heights, Valley Stream, Texas, and Long Island
