Asylum Seeking Children

We here have a proud tradition of helping unaccompanied asylum-seeking children (‘UASCs’) successfully claim protection in the United Kingdom. We have a dedicated and experienced team of immigration lawyers and caseworkers who are qualified to deal with cases of children from many different nationalities and backgrounds.

Our reputation has been built over the years from our close ties and links within the local community and organisations such as the Refugee Council as well as social services departments within London Local Authorities including Croydon, Greenwich, Thurrock and Lambeth Borough Councils.

Where the age of the child is in doubt our team of immigration lawyers are committed in challenging the Home Office age assessments and local authorities in order to protect the best interests of the child.

Our team of immigration lawyers also deal with those asylum-seeking children who have already claimed asylum but whose applications have been refused with the grant of Discretionary Leave to Remain in the United Kingdom for a limited period of time and who require assistance with making an application for an extension of stay in the United Kingdom.

Our firm of UK solicitors provides free legal assistance to those children that are eligible for immigration help.
