There is a common misconception that The Immigration Rules and regulations along with the Home Office and UK Visas and Immigration are there to assist people to come and visit or stay in the UK. In fact the exact opposite is true. The Rules and UK Visas and Immigration are, by necessity, there to “control” the numbers of people coming to and remaining in the UK, as uncontrolled Immigration would have a devastating impact on the Country’s economy and social stability. Properly stated, the Rules and UK Visas and Immigration are restrictive. The onus will always be on you, the person making an application to enter or remain in the UK to prove their case. Without this your application or case will fail. Our experienced team of lawyers fully understand this and are therefore ideally placed to assist you to get the best result possible.

If you intend to visit, reside or extend your stay in the UK, our immigration solicitors are here to help you and your family with our specialist immigration advisory team. Rodney Wilson, Melissa Toney and Curtis Telfer currently make up the immigration team.
