Axis Solicitors is committed to joining families together in the UK. Family and private life visa applications are more complex as you would be expected to provide detailed evidence. Furthermore, each family’s circumstances can be very unique. So, one shouldn’t read a blog and conclude, that if that was good for them, it must be good for me.
We will tailor a specific approach for you according to your circumstances in order to have more chances of winning the case. Our immigration solicitors will help you with your immigration matters for the following circumstances:

  • Entry Clearance Visa Applications: This includes:

    • Spouse Visa – who gets married and would like to bring their spouse to the UK
    • Fiancé Visa – who intends to get married in the UK within 6 months
    • Civil Partnership Visa – Same-sex couples would like to bring their partners to the UK
  • In-country Family Visa Applications – Leave to Remain Extensions
  • Adult Dependent Visa Application – To bring your parents or other relatives to the UK to be cared for
  • Children Dependents Visa – under the age of 18 years of British Nationals or Settled Persons
  • UK Ancestry Visa – For commonwealth citizens, whose grandparents were British Nationals

Our journey to Naturalising as a British Citizen may take years depending on the route. In most cases, you will need to have Indefinite leave to remain status for at least 12 months before you are illegible to apply for British Citizenship. While meeting certain statutory criteria with regards to your immigration status.
Our Solicitors deal with Settlement and Citizenship applications on a daily basis. We will guide you through the complex requirements of the application process, check your eligibility and prepare and submit your application as per the requirements of the Home Office.
Multiple visa categories can lead to settlement including:

  • Spouse Visa
  • Family & Private Life Visa
  • Business Visas
  • General work visas and Intra-Company transfer

This is the standard student visa that is required by the applicant willing to take the courses and degrees lasting for longer than 6 months. As a part of our services, we will liaise with the Home Office to ensure that your application is processed in time allowing you to come to the UK on time to attend your course of study. You will need to satisfy the below requirements before applying for a student visa:

  • Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies from a university that is a licensed student sponsor
  • Enough funds to pay for both your course tuition fees and your monthly living costs
  • English language skills

The work visa category is for people who wish to work in the UK. The work visa provides both short-term and long-term stay in the UK.
Short-term visas (Tier 5) consist of:

  • Charity Worker visa
  • Creative and Sporting visa
  • Government Authorised Exchange visa
  • International Agreement Worker visa
  • Religious Worker visa
  • Seasonal Worker visa
  • Youth Mobility Scheme visa

Long-term visas consist of:

  • Skilled Worker visa
  • Health and Care Worker visa
  • Intra-company visas
  • Minister of Religion visa (Tier 2)
  • Sportsperson visa (Tier 2)

After the preparation and submission of an application to the home office, it may happen that your application is refused by the home office. This can be because of a number of reasons and it is a very unpleasant event.
In case of a Spouse Entry Clearance application, this is a heartbreaking situation, as the applicant will have to wait a few extra months before they can join his / her spouse in the UK.
Axis Solicitors can help you in this difficult situation. In the unfortunate situation where the application is refused, a Right of Appeal is given. However, there are some categories where there is No Right to Appeal the decision. Thus we will have to apply a different approach. Such as Admin Review, Pre Action Protocol or a Judicial Review.

Appeals are an overly complex area of law and the appeal process must be handled by an immigration expert. If your application (for entry clearance, further leave to remain, settlement, Spouse/marriage visa, child visa, or human rights visa) has been refused. Our immigration solicitors can assist you by lodging an appeal against the decision made by the Home Office.
Initially, you can appeal to a First-tier tribunal if the Home Office has:

  • Refused your protection claim
  • Refused you a visa application/residence document or decided to deport you
  • Revoked your British citizenship

We have come across so many situations where a person applied for his application to the Home Office but there is a delay in the decision. The decision time varies from application to application. If we take an example of a Further Leave to Remain application: Normally the Home Office states that they will make a decision within 6 months, however, the decision sometimes can take more than a year.
We have experts who know how to expedite the process and get you Visa as soon as possible. We have done it for many of our clients and now they are happy living with their families.
Another example of delay could be: When your Entry Clearance Appeal is allowed and the home office takes a month before issuing the visa. In such cases, contact us immediately and we will help you expedite the process so that you can join your family in the UK.

Our team can help you in all immigration matters. For any work we take on, we prepare the application to high standards. Not only the applications but we have successfully overturned deportation orders, judicial reviews, refused entry clearance, refused in-country visa applications and united families with their loved ones.
Here at Axis, we work efficiently and in a timely manner. Whether it’s a simple spouse visa application, complex immigration Visa Application, Appeal against a Home office decision or Judicial Review claim, we know the exact process to handle your case.
