Our Work | Settlement (Indefinite Leave)
We can advise you on the quickest route to settlement and help you and your family with your applications.
If you have been living in the United Kingdom for five or ten years on a lawful basis, you may become eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain. You may also be eligible to apply earlier in certain categories.
Once you have indefinite leave to remain, you will be able to live and work here without applying for any further permission from the Home Office.
You may be unsure as to when you become eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain, especially if you have spent time outside the UK or there have been periods when your immigration status seems unclear. Whatever your situation, we can advise you in a one-off consultation or prepare the entire application for you.
Once you are settled, you may wish to take advice on becoming a British Citizen.
We can also advise you if your indefinite leave has lapsed due to an absence from the UK of over two years.
