We are specialist immigration solicitors within Croydon and Central London and have a strong reputation in assisting overstayers to regularise their stay. We offer competitive pricing and offer a bespoke immigration service to all our clients.
We have a wealth of experience in advising and preparing applications for individuals and overstayers to remain in the UK. Article 8 provides that a private life established in the UK cannot be unlawfully interfered with by the Home Office removing people. We ensure that your rights are not unlawfully violated.
The public interest that applies in these cases is set out within the immigration rules, policy and caselaw. If you are residing in the UK lawfully for 10 continuous years, then we can assist you in making an application for indefinite leave to remain.
If you have resided in the UK unlawfully for 20 years then we can apply for you to be granted leave to remain in the UK.
If you are under the age of 25 and have spent your half life in the UK, then again you can qualify for permission to remain in the UK. If you are under the age of 18 and have spent more than 7 years in the UK you can qualify for permission to remain also but have to show that it would be unreasonable to expect the child to leave the UK.
If none of the above apply and you do not have any family members in the UK then there is a possibility to obtain leave to remain if you can establish that there are very significant obstacles to a person’s re-integration in their country of origin.
Legal aid is not normally available for cases of this type but we recommend highly that an experienced immigration lawyer within this firm is instructed to represent you.
We are happy to arrange face-to-face, telephone or virtual meetings at a date and time convenient to you and in most cases can offer same-day meeting services.
