UK Visas and Immigration is a directorate of the Home Office with responsibility for processing visa and immigration applications for those from overseas who wish to stay in the UK, either on a temporary or permanent basis. As well as considering applications from foreign individuals hoping to live, work or study in this country, UK Visas and Immigration also considers applications made by employers and educational institutions who wish to join the register of sponsors and manage appeals from applicants who have been unsuccessful. The solicitors at Wilford Smith have many years’ experience representing clients who have been accused of breaching the UK's immigration laws. We have the required skills, knowledge and determination to develop a top-level strategy on your behalf, ensuring the best outcome in any case.
The Home Office may carry out an investigation in circumstances where it is suspected that an individual has arrived illegally in the UK, has overstayed their permission to stay in the country, if they are an asylum seeker who’s claim has been refused or if they are accused of facilitating illegal immigration into the UK. These investigations can involve raids on a person’s home or business, arrests and interviews. Instructing a member of Wilford Smith’s Criminal Defence Team at the earliest stage can be vital in ensuring your position is protected. Our lawyers are renowned for their exceptionally meticulous and strategic approach.
