A bit about me

Immigration law is constantly changing and is highly complex, so I know how important it is for me to stay up to date so that I can help people with the whole range of applications, visas, appeals and queries.

I have worked in this area for more than 10 years and I help a wide range of people from families and couples wanting to settle together to businesses who need to ensure that key staff can stay here. Attention to detail and clarity of communications are key to success in this area and I am meticulous, as well as being easy to reach and available to my clients.

Outside work, I have recently become a father and love spending time with my family, as well as being a keen footballer.

It is important to be proactive, and important that you are aware of any visa deadlines at least six months in advance that could affect you as an individual or business.

Immigration rules are constantly changing, so you should ensure that you are aware of any new developments that could affect you.

Immigration cases often require you to provide a plethora of supporting documents, so always retain documents that you may need to refer to in any future application.

Do I need a solicitor for this?

I often get asked this question and my answer to this is always the same. Immigration rules are constantly changing and some of the requirements for certain visa applications are not easy to find by simply looking at the Home Office website. Clients have often commented that navigating through the requirements and rules is like going through a minefield.

If you omit to include a requisite document, it could potentially mean a refusal of your application which would then in turn require further work to rectify. It is always better for you to instruct an expert that can guide you through the requirements and prepare the case for you to give you the best possible chance of success.

My application was refused, can you help me?

I would first need to review your case and ascertain whether you have been given a right to challenge the decision by either appealing to the First-tier Tribunal or by way of administrative review. I would also need to go through the facts of your case and then advise you as to what your best options are.

What are the prospects of success?

This will depend on the preparation of the case and will be based on the proviso that you can demonstrate that you meet the immigration rules and are able to provide the necessary supporting documents. I would be able to assess your case and advise you about the supporting documents required to ensure that you have the best chance of the application/appeal succeeding.
