      What services do we offer?

      Our Birmingham immigration lawyers are happy to offer professional advice for every UK immigration application and process.

      Indefinite Leave to Remain and British Citizenship

      There are several routes to settle in the UK, based on your immigration status and your personal background. Each of these paths requires you to meet strict requirements, as well as having spent a specific amount of eligible time in the UK.

      For example, after a period of five consecutive years spent in the UK, you may be eligible for Indefinite Leave to Remain. Once you hold settlement status, you can apply for British Citizenship and submit your British passport application.

      Along with expert legal advice on your ILR application, we can assist with the following citizenship applications:

      Besides, if you have been granted permission to stay in the UK for six months or more, we can liaise with the Home Office to ensure that you receive your Biometric Residence Permit as soon as you enter the country.

      Skilled Worker Visa UK 

      If you are a skilled international worker and you have received a job offer from a UK-based employer, our immigration solicitors can help you apply for a long-term work visa like the Skilled Worker Visa.

      The UK Skilled Worker Visa is a popular immigration route for workers who meet the requirements of the points-based system and can obtain 70 points (based on the job salary, language abilities, job offer, and educational background).

      The Skilled Visa can be used as a route towards Indefinite Leave to Remain if eligibility criteria are met. Learn more about how to extend the Skilled Worker Visa UK.

          Immigration lawyers help people with legal immigration matters. This could include applying for a work visa, applying for citizenship, registering a child as a citizen, or applying for your overseas family members to join you.

          An immigration solicitor will listen to your case carefully to understand your situation and your goals. They will ask you questions to find out more information about you and your background.

          They may advise you on the best immigration route to achieve your goals and may predict the likelihood of a successful application. They will explain the documents you need to submit with your application and give you detailed instructions on what you should do to maximise your chances of a successful outcome.

          As well as this, they are experts in immigration law. Immigration rules change constantly and it is essential that applicants understand the laws and guidelines. Working with a qualified immigration lawyer can help you with this.

          Note that in the UK, it is not legal for a person to provide immigration advice unless they are OISC-accredited.

          It is impossible to say the average cost of an immigration solicitor because there is no average service.

          Because immigration applications are typically very different, many law firms will give you a detailed breakdown of the cost after finding out the particular details of your case.

          Birmingham Immigration Lawyers ensures that all clients are given a full outline of the costs from the beginning, with a clear and transparent pricing structure.

          In addition to the lawyer fees, the applicant must also pay Home Office application fees. The cost depends on the immigration route.

          If granted the visa, you may be eligible to apply for ILR after five years (if you meet eligibility requirements).
