Axis Solicitors: Your Trusted Partner for Claiming UK Asylum and Refugee Status
Are you seeking asylum in the UK? Claiming asylum can be overwhelming and stressful, but with the help of Axis Solicitors, you can easily navigate the system. Our team of experienced immigration lawyers is dedicated to providing personalized and efficient service to help you and your family find safety and protection in the UK.
The first step in an asylum is to claim the UK Home Office. Applicants can do this by visiting a UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) office or completing an application form. Our team can guide you through this process and ensure that your claim is made correctly and that all necessary documents and evidence are provided.
Once your claim is submitted, it will be reviewed by the UKVI. The process can take several months, and during this time, our team will constantly communicate with you to provide updates and answer any questions you may have.
If your claim is successful, you will be granted refugee status and allowed to remain in the UK for five years. After this time, you will be eligible to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain. Axis Solicitors can also assist with this process, ensuring a smooth transition for you and your family.
If your claim is unsuccessful, you may be able to appeal the decision. Our team can guide you through the appeals process and represent you at the Immigration and Asylum Chamber.
At Axis Solicitors, we understand the importance of this time in your life and will do everything in our power to make the asylum process as stress-free as possible. We are committed to providing our clients with the highest service and support.
