Three Immigration Law Case Studies

Born Outside the UK between January 1983 – June 2006 to Unmarried parents

If you wish to apply for British Citizenship, were born between the period of January 1983 and June 2006, to at least one British parent and your parents are not married, your potential route to British citizenship will differ to the normal application process. These circumstances could adversely affect your application if the correct supporting documentation and legal expertise are not applied.

Our immigration lawyers have experience in assisting clients who were in similar circumstances. They prepared their full application, representations, specific supporting documentation unique to each case. Even whilst the client was resident out of the UK, we were able to apply the best strategy and successfully assist in this British citizenship procedure for such infrequent circumstances.

Overstayer Migrant with UK born Child

Our immigration lawyers have acted for a client who had overstayed on a student visa and during this time, he married and had a child in the UK, before his visa expired. His child was born in the UK and although he and his wife had separated, our immigration lawyers prepared a strong approach outside of the immigration rules, whereby the client was granted status in the UK with permission to work to provide for himself and his family and obtain a home for them to live. The status allowed the client to extend his status and eventually, if eligible, allow him to apply for British citizenship.

Medical Visitor

The probability of obtaining a visa for a migrant can be difficult, as it can been seen as if the person may wish to overstay in the UK for the medical facilities and never return. This is especially difficult for elderly medical visitors.

Our immigration lawyers have acted for a client who needed to visit the UK for a private medical assessment. They prepared strong representations, supported by all necessary evidence and applied inspired legal expertise. They were able to successfully assist the elderly client and her travel companion/carer, to visit the UK for a short duration, attend the appointment and return to their home country.
