Immigration

 

Whether you are visiting or planning to move to the UK on your own, planning to visit or move here alongside your family, or hoping your family will join you now that you have settled here, the laws regarding immigration to the UK can be complex and confusing and should neither be overlooked nor underestimated.

At CH Legal we have years of experience assisting individuals, families and business people in visiting or moving legally into the United Kingdom, and guiding them through the legislative challenges that can be associated with UK law.

With the uncertainty over the outcome of Brexit negotiations it has never been more important to ensure that you affairs are in order before applying for entry to the UK, so it is imperative that you have the right team of solicitors on your side.

Visas

Applying for a Visa can be time consuming and involve providing a large range of specific information. In many circumstances the way in which this information is required can be confusing and, at times, this can become stressful. We can provide clear and concise assistance when it comes to preparing applications for a range of visa types including:

  • Family Visit Visas
  • General Visit Visas
  • Business Visitor Visas (including visas for academics, doctors and dentists)
  • Prospective Entrepreneur Visas
  • Private Medical Treatment Visas
  • Sports and Entertainer Visas
  • Spouse Visa and Fiancé Visas
  • Tier 4 Student Visas

Human Rights and Discretionary Leave to Remain applications

If you are not a British citizen and you live in the UK but you’re not entitled to a visa, we can assist you in applying for Discretionary Leave to Remain; this is usually given on a temporary basis and is often only granted on the grounds of Human Rights. These applications can be time consuming and need thorough attention to detail. Our Immigration team have a lot of experience in handling these types of applications and can ensure that you are represented as well as you can be to achieve the right result.

EEA Applications

With all of the uncertainty about what will happen when the UK leaves the European Union, any application to come to the UK from the European Economic Area needs to be carried out thoroughly and precisely. Our solicitors work tirelessly to keep up to date with changing legislation and keep their eyes keenly on the horizon for any forthcoming changes in legislation that could affect those hoping to enter the UK from the EEA. We can assist you with a range of services including:

  • EEA Registration Certificates
  • EEA Residence Cards
  • EEA Permanent Residence
  • EEA Family Permits

Asylum

If you are seeking Asylum in the UK because you have left your home country because of fear of persecution, it’s quite plausible that it could be daunting to approach authorities to ensure your claim is upheld. We can assure you that we will offer professional advice and support, administered kindly, so that you can have the best chance to create a new life in the safety of the UK.

British Citizenship

Becoming a legal British citizen can involve a huge amount of paperwork and information that might not be easy to acquire. We have a great deal of experience in assisting people with applications for British citizenship and so we’re best placed to assist you with your application and give you the best chance possible of realising that goal.

Deportation

Deportation can be an extremely delicate and difficult position for anyone, particularly if it involves their family or loved ones. Our solicitors can offer the most professional advice and support if you find yourself at risk of deportation, or have family members, friends or employees who are under threat of deportation.

Judicial Review

A Judicial Review is a kind of court proceeding at which a Judge looks into the lawfulness of a decision or action made by a public body. When decisions regarding you, your family or your business don’t appear fair or right, we have the knowledge and experience in ensuring that the right result is strived for, and we have the right people with the right experience and contacts to ensure we do the best for you and your associates.
