If your application has been refused, you may have the right to appeal this decision

Immigration Appeals


Have you or a family member been refused a visa for permission to enter or stay in the UK? 

If your application has been refused, you may have the right to appeal this decision to the First Tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber)

We appreciate the anxiety that a refusal decision can cause an individual and the impact on family members. It is not a pleasant experience being removed from the country or prevented from entering the UK. 

We have more than for 20 years experience of dealing with clients visa refusals and representing appeals before the Immigration Tribunal. Appeals are complex and involve a high level of skill and advocacy, as well as up to date knowledge of relevant case law. You should always seek professional representation at an early stage to avoid further complications. 

The decision as to whether you should appeal against this decision is not always straightforward, as there may be various factors to consider. If you provide us with the relevant documentation, we can ensure that you receive the correct advice as to the legal merits of your case to ensure that you comply with the strict time limits for appealing against a decision of an immigration official.

We will draft the grounds of appeal, skeleton legal arguments, advise you on witness statements, and prepare the appeal bundle prior to representing your case before the Immigration Tribunal. All these steps are essential and will give you the best possible chance of success. 




Where you have chosen to appeal a decision, we will review your initial application, your supporting documents, and your refusal letter.


We will draft detailed grounds of appeal giving legal reasons as to why your application should not have been refused.


We may also need further information from you, either face-to-face, over the telephone or by email, to enable us to complete this. 

As well as drafting grounds of appeal we will do the following

  • Review of refusal decision
  • Fill in Appeal documentation
  • Lodge Appeal Grounds
  • Prepare witness statements
  • Liaise with you and any witnesses you may have who can speak for you at your hearing
  • Prepare legal arguments
  • Represent you before the Immigration Judge when your appeal is heard, using legal arguments, case law and the government's own immigration rules and policies to present your case
  • Keep in touch with the UK appeal authorities on your behalf 


This service is available to clients who have lodged an appeal from abroad and are therefore unable to be present at their appeal, as well as clients who are in the UK
