Why do I need a solicitor to support me in my UK visa application?

It is often the case that when those making a visa application begin the process, they are presented with an overwhelming amount of information about what is required to apply to enter the UK successfully. While there are many useful sources that can provide applicants with guidance, these can also be confusing, and sometimes misleading. With UK immigration law being particularly complex and continuously evolving, it is not uncommon for applicants to mistakenly believe that they have submitted appropriate information to satisfy UK Visa & Immigration requirements. Whether an application is approved or refused will often depend upon the smallest details – having the support of an experienced Immigration Solicitor can be vital in ensuring that you have the best chance of applying successfully.
