Appeals to the Immigration and Asylum Chamber
Has your application been refused?
We specialise in helping our clients win their appeals against decisions made in the UK or against decisions of overseas entry clearance posts. Our current success rate is excellent at over 90%.
Why instruct us?
Our partners specialise in bringing appeals before the Immigration Tribunal. Our experience of dealing with the whole immigration process from submitting applications to appearing before Immigration Judges gives us a unique perspective and the skills to ensure that we maximise our client's chances of success.
We have recently won appeals covering the following areas:
Tier 1 (General and Entrepreneur);
Tier 2 (General);
Tier 4 (General);
EEA family member appeals (including retaining the right of residence issues);
Entry Clearance appeals (particularly fiance, spousal, dependent family member and visitor appeals);
Settlement (long residence / 5-year settlement appeals);
Article 8 issues (right to private and family life).
Our success stories pages give details of some of the recent successes that we have had.
One partner throughout the appeal
We guarantee that from the moment you first call us to speak to a solicitor, you will be put through to one of our partners who will also be a qualified solicitor. If you decide to instruct our firm, that partner will be the person to meet with you and then assist you throughout the entire appeal process including representing you at the Tribunal.
Our services to help you win an appeal usually come in two stages.
Initial meeting. At this meeting we will help you decide if you want to appeal and give you advice on:
Your chances of success in an appeal (our opinion);
The steps we can take in your case;
The law and procedure in relation to the appeals;
Our fixed fees.
Throughout the process we will:
Advise you of the evidence you will need to strengthen your case;
Prepare and submit witness statements with you and any witnesses;
Prepare and submit full bundles of evidence in support of the appeal;
Prepare and submit a detailed skeleton of the arguments that will be made at the appeal hearing;
Represent you at your appeal hearing before an Immigration Judge;
Advise you in relation to the determination of the immigration judge and on the merits of any further appeal if necessary;
Where the appeal is successful, help you contact the UKBA or Embassy who should then grant your visa.

Tier 1 and Tier 2 Appeal and Judial Review Victories
The Home Office have been interpreting the Tier 1 and Tier 2 requirements very strictly.
They are refusing many Tier 1 applicants due to documents not meeting their exact criteria, for example, online bank statements not accepted. Tier 2 applicants are often having problems with the complexity of the SOC codes.
We have had great success in winning many appeals and Judicial Reviews against Tier 1 and Tier 2 refusals.
Entry Clearance Appeals
Decisions of Embassies and BHCs overseas sometimes fail to fairly consider an individuals case.
We have an excellent record of overturning unfair decisions made by Entry Clearance Posts.
