We offer free confidential legal advice via our AdviceLine on immigration issues and asylum claims. 

We also offer representation and case work. Some of this is covered by Legal Aid. 

Our free dedicated Immigration Advice Line is open on Tuesdays and Fridays, and is the quickest way to get advice on immigration and nationality problems. 

We can direct you to the right immigration application forms from the Home Office web site and tell you where to look on their website for fuller information in specific categories.  

We will give an objective view of whether you are likely to meet the immigration criteria in your category.

What to do next

The team is fully accredited and has well over 25 years of experience of specialising in immigration and asylum law.

AdviceLine opening hours:
  • Tuesday 2:00-4:00
  • Friday 10:00-12:00

The AdviceLine during these times is for Immigration and Asylum related matters.
