The law states that only those who are registered and accredited by OISC – the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner – are able to provide immigration advice. My office is not accredited by OISC, and so the extent to which we can assist with immigration queries is limited.
I can help with:
- Requesting an update from the Home Office on an outstanding application.
- Asking for a case to be expedited on compassionate or health grounds, for example.
- Inquiring into Home Office procedures and clarifying rules.
- Confirming whether the Home Office have received documents you have sent.
- Clarifying whether you have a right to work in the UK whilst your application is pending.
- Identifying and flagging Home Office errors.
- Offer immigration advice.
- Assist with filling in an application, or advise what type of application to make.
- Give you an indication of the likely chance of success of your application.
Generally, I can only intervene once an application has already been submitted. If you are unsure whether I am able to help with your immigration matter, please send me an email and I will be happy to clarify.
If you are contacting me about a Home Office case, please note that I will require the following information:
- Your full name.
- Your date of birth.
- Your nationality.
- The type of application you are inquiring about.
- The date of any applications you have submitted.
- Any Home Office references you have.
If I am unable to help you, I will try and refer you to an organisation which can.
