How we will work on your immigration matter

We will agree the scope of work on your immigration matter at the outset and confirm this in writing to you.

All immigration work will be carried out by a member of the immigration team under the overall supervision of an immigration partner. We will confirm to you who will be your designated immigration adviser and will be working with you.

At the start of your matter, we will provide an indication of the timeline to complete your work. This may vary due to external factors such as the availability of visa appointments and visa processing times by the UK immigration authorities.

The work we will undertake in relation to a typical visa application includes:

  • Having an initial meeting with you (by video call) to understand your case and to provide initial advice.
  • Assessing your eligibility against the legal requirements for your intended visa application and providing a note of advice setting out whether you are likely to meet the criteria.
  • Providing you with a list of documents you will need to collect in support of your application.
  • Drafting a visa application on your behalf.
  • Reviewing your supporting documents and advising you as to whether they meet the Home Office criteria.
  • Liaising with you throughout the case.
  • Preparing legal representations to accompany your application.
  • Assisting you with the submission of the application and seeing it through to a decision.

For other immigration matters, the stages involved will vary depending on the nature of the work. For example, in an immigration audit, we will set out what the audit will cover as well as the volume of documents to review and the audit venue.
