Asylum Claims

At RVS Solicitors, we specialise in assisting private clients such as business people, former civil servants, and political activists claim asylum in the UK.

Our team will listen to the details of your case in a sensitive and compassionate manner.

We will discuss your best options with you and keep you up to date with the progress of your case through our client portal. 

We understand the stress and strain you and your family may be experiencing whilst waiting for your asylum claim to be approved.

Therefore, we will assist you in every way possible and refer you onto third-party support if appropriate. 

The ability to claim asylum in another country is enshrined in international law.  The UK has signed up to all these laws and enacts them through its own legislation.

RVS Solicitors Are Experienced in Assisting Asylum Claims in the UK

Our Immigration Solicitors not only understand the complex laws surrounding asylum, but they also have the legal knowledge, determination, and skills required to move your case forward.

We fight hard to ensure the British government abides by its international legal commitments to protect those escaping persecution.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

What is asylum?

If you face persecution in your home country and you manage to leave, you have a right to claim asylum in another nation.  Note, this is a right to claim only, it does not automatically follow that your claim will be successful.

Asylum claims can be made under three different international conventions:

  • 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees – you will need to prove you have a well-founded fear of persecution due to your race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership of a particular social group, and are unable or unwilling to seek protection from the authorities in your home State.
  • 1950 European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) – this is a human rights claim.
  • European Union Asylum Qualification Directive – this directive is part of a larger initiative to establish a Common European Asylum System.  It is designed to ensure all EU member states are identifying asylum seekers using the same criteria and those seeking protection are entitled to similar benefits in every member State.

How can I apply for asylum in the UK?

To apply for asylum, you must reach the UK (claims cannot be made outside the country).  It is vital that you claim asylum as soon as possible once you enter the country. Failure to do this could mean you will not be provided with accommodation or money to live on by the government.   Once you have made an asylum claim, you cannot be removed until a decision on your case has been made.

A caseworker will manage your claim for asylum.  You will need to attend an interview where you will explain how you were persecuted in your home country and why you are scared to return.

The asylum interview is a crucial part of the process.  Our immigration Solicitors can help you prepare for and attend an interview with you.

If your asylum claim is refused, our team will work tenaciously to challenge the decision.

      Testimonials
      Dealing with Rakhi was more like having In house counsel than hiring a law firm
      So Rakhi Singal of RVS has just handled my divorce, it was a very complex case and I came to Rakhi at the very last minute on a friend’s recommendation. My case was a mess and I stood to lose everything.

      Dealing with Rakhi was more like having In-House counsel than hiring a law firm, she does not approach her clients as a cash machine like many law firms do, she works with you to manage and minimise your costs and de-escalate conflict rather than throw wood on the fire.

      Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
      Highly recommended. Lusine helped me out with my ILR 10-year continuous residency application. She explained everything to me, and patiently answered all my questions. She also put my mind at ease. They are very quick in replying to my emailed queries. I consulted two other solicitors before someone recommended RVS to me; the first one did not seem quite sure what to do, the second had exorbitant rates. RVS's fees are very reasonable given their professionalism.
