    Legal Aid Support

    If you’re a non-EEA national and want to live and work in the UK for an extended period of time, you will need to make a UK Visa application. There are different types of visas available depending on your circumstance. A Family Visa is needed to join family members in the UK for a period longer than 6 months. If you’re living outside of the UK, you can apply to a Family Visa to join your spouse, fiancee, partner, child, parent or relative who will provide long-term care for you.

    Our expert immigration lawyers are based across the UK, including in LondonManchester, or Birmingham. You can also use the office finder to find the closest branch to you.

    We offer immigration advice sessions as face to face appointments at all of our UK offices, or via the phone.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Whilst under the new rules (April 2013) there has been a reduction in the types of immigration and asylum cases eligible for Legal Aid. As a general rule, the following matters will qualify for some advice, assistance and/or representation:

    • Detention & Bail cases;
    • Applications for Leave to Remain under the domestic violence rule;
    • Applications for leave by those identified as victims of trafficking;
    • Proceedings before the Special Immigration Appeals Commission. This includes deportation and deprivation of citizenship cases where information is to be kept confidential for reasons of national security;
    • Many asylum cases & appeals;
    • Applications for Leave to Remain or settlement as a refugee with humanitarian protection/discretionary leave under Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights, ie: freedom from torture or inhuman and degrading treatment;
    • Some Judicial Review Applications, in limited circumstances.

    Unfortunately, most mainstream non-asylum immigration cases are no longer eligible for Legal Aid.

    This includes Entry Clearance Visas eg, for a spouse/partner or family member.

    It also includes applications made under Article 8 of the ECHR (right to a family or private life).
