There is a relatively short time limit to file an appeal following a rejection of a visa application. It normally involves working around the clock to organise the paperwork for this to be filed on time. We always use specialist immigration counsel to prepare the grounds of appeal, this is only courteous to counsel who will be presenting and arguing the case at the appeal hearing. We are particularly strong in relation to appeals involving human rights issues. If you need to appeal, you can contact us for a initial discussion, please be advised that we will not charge for this call. We will need to see the grounds of refusal by the home office/ immigration caseworker if possible. Also if a copy of the application to be appealed against is available we would like to see that as well. We can deal with the appeal either in person or if necessary by telephone conference (since some of our clients are based abroad). Whilst the appeal is ongoing we provide support to our client including if necessary a letter (prepared by counsel) to be provided to their employers to enable them to carry on working whilst the appeal is being processed. We would welcome any telephone call to discuss an active or prospective appeal.
We cover London, and also other areas and can meet in our Central London Office located at 32 Bloomsbury Street WC1, very close to Tottenham Court Road underground station.
Telephone conferences – can be used if you are located some way from our office or overseas – or if you have busy commitments. This method of communication works quite well and is fairly commonly used at the request of our clients. At an early point in time we also organise a short three way telephone conference with counsel to discuss any relevant issues.
