Morlings solicitors have dedicated immigration lawyers specially educated in the procedures that must be followed in order to help those originally from alternative countries to enter, live and work in the UK. The current rules and regulations are extremely strict when it comes to border crossings and immigration management so it is imperative that you seek advice from a professional in this area before you begin to put plans in place.
Our immigration lawyers can advise you on where you stand with regards to permissions required. Extensive checks will need to be carried out to validate your eligibility to enter and remain in the country – however in some cases either due to nationality or international pre confirmed agreements automatic rights will already be operational. .
They can assist with every element of the immigration process, including but not restricted to:
- establishing your right to live or work in the UK without restriction under a recognised right of abode or via a certificate of entitlement;
- helping family members join you in the UK under a family visa;
- applying for settled status to enable you and your family to continue to remain in the UK;
- applying for naturalisation or British citizenship;
- applying for a student, work or business visa under the UK points-based system;
- visitor or tourist visa applications;
- ancestry visas;
- arranging a sponsorship license where you have been offered specialist or temporary work under the Tier 1 or Tier 5 entry rules;
- helping you or a family member with your asylum claim;
- dealing with appeals against denial of entry, refusal of an application for leave to remain or an order for deportation;
- applying for a residence card or permanent residence as an EEA national; or
- applying for a residence card or permanent residence as a family member or extended family member of an EEA national.
We can also advise employers on immigration issues via our business immigration service.
