    Busy times for our immigration team

    It has been a busy time for our immigration team recently including a high-profile case you may have seen covered by BBC news.

    Despite living in the UK for nearly 50 years, Paulette Wilson was being held at an immigration removal centre under threat of deportation. In a case reported by BBC Midlands Today, we secured her release, providing the necessary evidence to prove her case and threatening High Court action.

     

    In other news, our drop-in immigration advice service in Telford led to another case for our immigration specialists. Our client is currently in the UK with leave to remain under the immigration rules for 2.5 years based on being a parent of a British Citizen. She will not get indefinite leave to remain until she has completed 10 years on this basis. However, she recently married her long-term partner, who is a French national. We advised her to apply under the EEA regulations to obtain indefinite leave to remain after five years. This will cost her a £65 Home Office fee compared to the £993 Home Office fee and £500 Immigration Health Surcharge she is facing under her current route.

    The High Court Case of ‘MK’ found that children aged five or more born in the UK to Indian nationals who have never had their births registered at the Indian Consulate are stateless and can apply to register as a British citizen on this basis. Our immigration department has made a number of successful applications on this basis.

    If you are in this situation please contact us as soon as possible to make an application, as once a child has a British Passport it will entitle the parents to make an application to regularise their own status.

    And finally, we’re very proud and grateful to have received this feedback during the month. We love to get this from our clients, and encourage anyone in need of legal advice or support to get in contact with our friendly team:

    "Very helpful and willing to assist at all levels.” 

    "Constantly advising on all stages of the process.”

    "Has a good mastery of the law and always willing to listen.”

    And

    "Thanks a lot and keep on progressing."
