Family and Foreign Partners

Our families are so important and at Morgan Hill Solicitors we understand the necessity of bringing them together.

In enlisting the support of an immigration solicitor, you can be sure your application will be generated on your behalf quickly and meticulously, allowing your family time to prepare for their journey to the UK rather than concerning themselves with the legalities of the process.

Student Visa

The UK education system is one of the most highly regarded and respected institutions in the world. If you or a family member would like to study in the UK but the student is a foreign national, our immigration solicitors will help you apply for a student visa or support you in extending your current visa so you can complete your studies.

Asylum Protection

An application for asylum protection in the UK can be made if you fear persecution or ill-treatment in your country.

An applicant who fears persecution in their native country is one of the reasons you can apply for asylum in the UK and a successful application will be given refugee status in the UK. If you do not qualify for refugee status with an asylum application, we can still help you qualify for Humanitarian Protection based upon any requirements for the protection of ill-treatment in your native country.

Finding Talent Abroad

If you are a current business owner, you may be looking to acquire skills from abroad. It can be difficult to obtain the correct license in Tier 2, Tier 4 and Tier 5, whilst ensuring that your company complies with its set criteria. The compliance of a sponsor license always remains an essential element, we are here to not only help you in obtaining one but also in making sure that you do not breach any of the requirements set by the Home Office.

Sole Representative Visa

The Sole Representative of an Overseas Business visa category is for businesses that want to send a senior employee to the UK to act on their behalf to establish a commercial presence. In order to obtain a Sole Representative visa, you will need to evidence you meet several requirements. The exact requirements that you will need to satisfy will vary depending on your specific circumstances.  For more advice and information, please get in touch with our immigration solicitors who will talk you through the initial application phases and help you to understand what is required to make your application successful.

Working Visa

If you are considering working in the UK, you will require a work visa. Many employers now offer work visas as incentives for working in the UK but there are still many requirements you must meet in order to receive one. The requirements will vary with each person’s circumstances, so there is no specific approach that will accommodate everyone’s application. At Morgan Hill Solicitors, we will look at your circumstances and create a bespoke, strategic plan to ensure your work visa is submitted with correct evidence and care, whilst adhering to the strict guidelines required to make an application successful. Our team can also provide legal assistance for work visa renewal or extensions and potential Leave to Remain applications.

Delayed and Pending Immigration Matters

The Home Office has a statutory duty to deal with all immigration matters within a reasonable time. It is unfortunate that sometime the Home Office delays in deciding the immigration applications. We can assist you to expedite your immigration matter by challenging the delay by serving pre-action protocol for judicial review notices and where necessary by challenging the delay in the courts by bringing judicial review proceedings.

Judicial Review

Judicial review is the process by which an individual can challenge the lawfulness of decisions made by public bodies.

Our lawyers understand the importance of ensuring that public authorities are held to account. We’ll advise you on public law challenges and guide you through the process.

In a claim for a judicial review a court will consider whether a public body has acted lawfully. It’s an important remedy which allows individuals to seek accountability. It allows individuals who are unfavourably affected by the decisions of public bodies to challenge the legality of those decisions.

Administrative Review

An Administrative Review is a review or reconsideration of your immigration application following refusal of the same by the Home Office UKVI. Refusal of certain immigration applications known as eligible decisions can only be challenged by way of Administrative Review.

The Immigration Act 2014 has removed (and will remove) a number of in- country rights of appeal and as a result, the available challenge or remedy will be via Administrative Review. This is currently only applicable to certain categories but will be rolled out across broader categories in due course.
