Home Office & Immigration

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.

I cannot:

  • 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.
