Immigration Law guide
Immigration specialists can help you to understand your legal rights, they assist with any applications you or your family need to make in order to settle into a new country, and they can help to make sure your immigration application goes smoothly. They can also help illegal immigrants who arrived in the UK through non-legal channels (and who would most likely face deportation) to seek political asylum, allowing them to remain in the UK (if they have left their own country to avoid persecution).
What reasons allow me to immigrate to another country?
There are lots of reasons why someone might want to leave their home country and move to the UK and these are legally acceptable. These reasons include: job opportunities, to be closer to family members, political motivations, or even atrocities in their own country (such as war or a natural disaster). Any of these can be used as a valid reason to immigrate to another country.
When and how do I apply to immigrate to the UK?
The process of applying for immigration in the UK varies depending on a number of different factors. For example, someone moving to the UK from Europe will have to complete different application forms and follow a different process to someone who is illegally living in the UK and wants to seek asylum. These varying factors include: where you are from, your reason for immigrating, whether you have family in the UK, and if you are potentially face persecution in your home country, among others. The best thing you can do is to seek legal advice from someone who can understand your situation and advice you based on your circumstances.

The application to immigrate to another country can be a complex and lengthy process. There are a lot of different forms and processed for people in different circumstances, so you might not be entirely sure what you need to do to apply for immigration, or what kind of supporting documentation you might need.
While the information requested of you isn’t complex, completing the necessary paperwork can be a mundane and repetitive process and it can be very easy to make minor and silly mistakes, that end up delaying your immigration application.
