Human rights claims

The 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees states:

“A refugee, according to the Convention, is someone who is unable or unwilling to return to their country of origin owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion.”

Your status might fall under this definition of the 1951 Convention; in which case you can make a human rights claim and apply for asylum within the UK. A human rights claim is a complicated procedure with its own range of unique issues to deal with, including being interviewed by a member of the Home Office. This officer will run through your application with a fine-tooth comb to ensure it is legitimate, which makes it doubly important to make sure each detail provided is accurate.

Our convenient payment plans also give you access to quality legal support from solicitors who know the ins and outs of UK immigration law. They can make sure that your visa application is not only watertight, but an accurate representation of who you are as a person.


British citizenship

Becoming a British citizen is a privilege for most. Being part of a country that leads across several platforms, is a global economy and is in possession of a rich heritage are just a few of the reasons why one would consider emigrating to the UK.

To be eligible for British Citizenship you are required to apply by registration (if you are a British Overseas/Overseas Territory citizen) or by meeting the naturalisation criteria below:

  • Meet the residency requirement of 5 years (3 for spouses/civil partners of a British citizen)
  • You’re of sound mind & good character
  • Age 18 or over
  • Have the intention to continue living in the UK
  • Pass ‘life in the UK’ test
  • Language proficiency in English, Welsh or Scottish Gaelic.

If you are making an individual application you need to check that you have the proper documentation, including reference letters, professional situation, civil matters and criminal offences to be reviewed by the UK Home Office. Mistakes in this information could delay or even jeopardise your British Citizen Application. Therefore it is vital to ensure you have legal support from experienced legal advisors, who have successful track records in assisting with UK immigration matters.

We provide payment plans to cover your legal costs, so you or your business can get the legal support you require – without the need for large up front payments.
