What we do – Personal and family
We’ve helped thousands of people with UK immigration cases based on both British immigration law and on EU law as it applies to the United Kingdom.
Couples and partners
We are proud of our history of assisting couples to live together in the UK.
Whether you are the partner of a British citizen, a permanent resident, an EU national, or an individual with temporary leave, we can advise on applications for the right to enter or remain in the UK on the basis of your relationship.
We assist partners in same and opposite sex relationships, partners who are married and who are unmarried, partners who are in the UK and those outside, partners with an exemplary immigration history and partners who have made mistakes in the past.
We understand, and celebrate, that love crosses borders, cultures, and ages. Whatever your circumstances, we can advise.
We bring families together in the UK and ensure they stay together in the UK.
We advise on applications for children to join, or remain with, their parents in the UK, including the children of EU nationals.
We advise on British nationality law for children – those who acquire it automatically and those who obtain it through registration.
We are experts on immigration and nationality law as it relates to international adoption and international surrogacy.
We understand that families come in all shapes and sizes and are not all the same.
Adult dependent relatives
The UK’s rules relating to adult dependent relatives have become increasingly restrictive. We will give realistic advice on those rules and advise on possible solutions to your desire to look after those who have previously looked after you.
It is our opinion that freedom of movement of people is a principle of which the European Union should be proud.
We know that following the result in the referendum, many EU nationals and their family members are concerned by the consequences of Brexit.
We are UK specialists on European free movement law. We can advise on your current position, the residence documents available to you and keep you informed of any developments in connection with Brexit.
We help with both straightforward and complex cases. We advise spouses, partners, children and extended family members.
Long residence and private life
The British immigration rules make provision for individuals to be granted the right to stay on the basis of their long residence and the life they have built in the UK. We can advise on, and assist with, applications on this basis.
Asylum and refugee status
Sadly, there remain many parts of the world where individuals fear persecution because of their religion, race, politics, gender or sexual or gender identity. If you have a fear of persecution or a human rights violation if you return home, we can guide you through the complex asylum and human rights system.
We can help you and your family apply for British Citizenship.
We assist individuals who, through their residence in the UK, can naturalise and register. We also assist children who are adopted overseas or born following international surrogacy arrangements to become British.
We have assisted many individuals to navigate the extremely complex history of British nationality law. We have assisted individuals with obtaining British Citizenship who had previously been denied it because of discrimination on the basis of the gender of their British Citizen parent or on the marital status of their parents.
Visitors to the UK
We help with visa applications for visits and advise you of your rights and responsibilities whether you’re travelling as a tourist, on business, for academic reasons, to visit family or for medical treatment.
Whatever your circumstances, we will give clear and realistic advice.
