  • Successful pre-action protocol outcome following an illegal refusal of a UK visit visa application

    A decision letter from the Home Office refusing your visa application is surely not something anyone would like to receive or see. However, it is certainly more disturbing when the reasons for refusal are completely illegal and incorrect. This is something that is unfortunately not as uncommon as one might think. Our immigration lawyers team is confident in advising and assisting on not only the visit visa application itself, but also the aftermath just in case the Home Office makes a wrong decision. We understand and appreciate our clients’ concerns and therefore endeavour to provide the best client care service...

  • Successful UK spouse visa extension upon appeal with costs recovered

    The client approached us after she had prepared and submitted her UK spouse visa extension application without legal representation. She had realised too late that her visa was expiring and rushed to put in an application in order to not become an overstayer. While she knew about the spouse visa extension  requirements she was meant to meet, including the one for English language, due to the shortness of time, she failed to sit the language exam and submitted her application without relevant evidence, hoping she would get it later. As at that time surrendering the passport with the application was...
