As part of our bespoke services, you will be assigned an immigration lawyer who perfectly matches your individual needs. Our advice, application and appeal services are tailored to you.

Your immigration lawyer will spend time ensuring your application meets the standard which is demanded by UKVI and the Home Office.
What services do we offer?
Our immigration services are designed to meet our clients’ needs and offer professional advice for every UK immigration application and process.
Services for Family and Foreign Partners
When relocating to the UK, all your relatives must be travelling legally and holding the right visa for their circumstances. Our dedicated immigration services can provide security for you and your family.
We can analyse your situation and advise on the best procedures to follow. One of our professionals will prepare and submit your forms and documents and coordinate any necessary step to make your Family Visa application successful.
We can also help couples who wish to get married in the UK or those who are in a same-sex or unmarried relationship. Married couples who seek settlement status in the UK can apply for a Spouse Visa, and receive complete assistance from our team of experts.
Assistance for Asylum Seekers and Detainee
At IAS, we have already assisted several asylum seekers getting humanitarian protection in the UK. If you have left your home country and you cannot go back due to fear of persecution, we are here to help you.
One of our professionals will listen to your case and investigate your options to feel safe here in the UK. If necessary, we can also meet you immediately, to provide urgent and comprehensive assistance to you and your family.
Businesses and Work Visas
We offer full sponsorship licence support to UK-based employers that wish to hire migrant workers or interns. One of our advisers will handle your case and follow your business through each step of your application, to ensure complete compliance with Home Office regulations.
If you are an international investor or entrepreneur pursuing business opportunities in the UK, one of our specialists can arrange a consultation to evaluate your options to succeed. We can discuss your investment and check if you meet the eligibility criteria for either the Investor Visa or the Tier 1 Innovator Visa.
British Residency and Nationality
Settling in the UK is the last and most crucial step of your immigration journey. However, before you can send your application, you must meet strict requirements, such as having spent a specific amount of time in the UK.
Applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain or registering for British Citizenship are complex processes that require an extensive bundle of documents. Even the smallest mistake can jeopardise your case and delay your application, translating into a waste of time and money.
Since we understand how crucial yet stressful moving permanently to a new country can be, we offer dedicated services for those who wish to settle in the United Kingdom.

Why is it essential to hire an OISC-regulated solicitor in London?
It is a criminal offence for a person to provide immigration advice or service in this country unless working for an organisation that is regulated by the OISC.
The Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) is an executive, non-departmental public body which regulates immigration advisers. Its role is to ensure that all professionals working in this industry are competent enough to act in the best interest of their clients.
Hiring a solicitor that is OISC-regulated means entrusting your case with a professional who is trained and experienced to the highest standards.
At IAS, we employ only the best OISC-regulated lawyers, whose knowledge of UK immigration law will be decisive in making your case successful. Get in touch today to learn more about our professional services.

Our team of immigration lawyers in London will start processing your case as soon as possible. We are committed to working tirelessly to help our clients get their desired results and their visa.
During your advice session, your adviser will provide you with an overview of the estimated time your application will take.
On the other hand, we will keep monitor your case and regularly liaise with the Home Office, to ensure that your application is not delayed.
If your case is particularly time-sensitive, or if you are anxious about meeting a specific deadline, you can also choose our dedicated Fast-Track Application Package.

Can an immigration lawyer in London help me extend my stay in the UK?
The majority of UK Visas is set to expire after a fixed amount of time. If you meet specific requirements, you may be able to apply for a renewal and extend your stay.
It must be noted that the procedure of renewing a UK visa depends on the type of permit you hold and your circumstances.
If your visa is going to expire, you should act as soon as possible. If you overstay your permit, you may face several legal consequences, including deportation or being banned from entering the UK. In addition, this can have implications for all your future applications to travel to the country.
To avoid any delay in your visa renewal, you should seek the advice of an immigration expert. At IAS, our lawyers can perform a check to verify the validity of your visa, and file and complete your extension forms on your behalf.
Call us on 0333 305 9375 or enquire online to receive professional guidance on your visa renewal case.
My visa application has been delayed. Can an immigration lawyer in London help me?
There are several reasons why your application may be delayed. For example, if you failed to provide all the required documents, the Home Office may need more time to evaluate your case. The same applies if you submitted the wrong forms or if you made any mistakes when completing your paperwork.
The most efficient way to find out why your application is delayed is to contact the Home Office.
Otherwise, you can ask one of IAS’ immigration solicitors in London to handle your case, and liaise with the authorities on your behalf.
If you are currently in the UK and you applied for a new visa or an extension at least 28 days before the end of your authorised stay, your status should remain the same while you wait for a response from the UKVI.
Get in touch with our team to check if you can keep your rights to live and work in the UK while you wait, and to find out the reasons for the delay in your application.
Immigration lawyers are trained to provide professional advice and services on immigration issues, such as:
- Applications for entry clearance, leave to enter or remain in the UK;
- British citizenship, nationality and residence;
- Claims for asylum, deportation or removal;
- Immigration employment law.
As a general rule, non-UK workers require a work permit to legally seek employment in this country. This is known as the Tier 2 Visa, and it is only available for skilled workers who have received a job offer from a UK-based company.
If you wish to apply for this permit and work in the UK, our lawyers can help you. We will review your situation and advise on how to proceed with your case. We can also liaise with your employer to ensure that he holds an adequate Certificate of Visa, which is mandatory to sponsor your visa.
Get in touch today with our team to start your immigration journey.

On the other hand, we can assist international investors with their business plan, which must be submitted along with their Tier 1 Visa application.
We also offer advice on the Resident Labour Market Test and how to hire workers for roles included in the Shortage Occupations List.
