Westkin Associates are a wonderful organisation who provide sound advice. I worked with James and Shareena Rahman for six months before submitting my application for a spouse visa, and they both provided a great quality service and have really helped me with my application. I have now submitted the file for consideration and with fingers crossed I will hopefully, with the help of senior Associate Shareena Rahman, be able to say that my wife is approved for the settlement visa.... Whatever now happens, I leave this in God\'s hands but I should provide these credited comments where it’s due.... Thank you very much for your help Shareena and now let us hope that my wife gets approved for the settlement visa.... Thanks a million!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
EXCELLENT AND SUPER SERVICE
Westkin Associates were prompt in tending to my matter giving timely and correct advice. They were friendly and professional during all interactions. I would have no qualms in recommending Westkin to my friends/family. They were brilliant. They kept us up to date through out the whole process. My whole family are ecstatic with the news, that I have been granted visa.
Excellent and Friendly Legal Advice
I needed the services of a law firm to help me with the requirements for a visa for the spouse of a UK sponsor, and chose Westkin Associates. Hateem Ali gave me excellent legal advice regarding the application and its legal requirements. My caseworker, Frances Young, guided me carefully through every step of the process and answered my many questions with unfailing patience and courtesy. She was always available when I had queries. She made the process easy for me. It has been a pleasure to work with her and with Hateem Ali. The application was successful and my spouse is now the proud holder of a UK entry visa.
Westkin Associates provide exceptional services, and I can recommend them highly to anyone in need of legal advice on matters of immigration.
Outstanding professionals and very human
I contacted HATEEM ALI of Westkin Associated after he successfully helped my colleague and his family for they immigration issue.
Myself have to find a way of staying in the UK with my family. Because I came to UK under a very special and restricted immigration status my case was delicate and required high level of professionalism that I find at Westkin Associates.
From the beginning to end of the process, I felt so confident as HATEEM shown me such professionalism. Communication between us was smooth and sustained.
At certain stage, FRANCES YOUNG, assistant to HATEEM ALI would review, very professionally, my thick dossier, phrase by phrase, page by page. The outcome is from the submission to regularisation no more than 2 months had elapsed.
THANKS for helping me stay with my family,
CONGRATULATIONS to Westkin Associates for the professional job done,
LONG LIFE to Westkin Associates and all the staff: HATEEM ALI, FRANCES YOUNG and others...
Excellent legal advice
I chose to use Westkin when seeking advice on the application process for the settlement visa for the spouse of a UK citizen. Hateem Ali gave me excellent legal advice. My caseworker, Frances Young, guided me carefully through the various steps of the application process, and answered my many questions readily. Both Hateem and Frances were a pleasure to work with. I would recommend the services of Westkin very highly to anyone seeking advice on immigration matters.
Great Service! Worth every penny!
I was referred to Westkin by Imperial College Student Services to advise me on my British naturalisation application. I did a lot of research myself and I have done most of the work done myself – gathering of documentation and filling up the application form.
Amir carefully reviewed my application pack and spotted a couple of issues, which to me looked irrelevant, but to the UKBA it could materially affect my application.
My British naturalisation and passport applications were processed and approved in less than 2 months! I am confident that without Amir’s help, I could still be waiting for feedback from UKBA !
I highly recommend Westkin!
Honest and professional
Don't look any further! Having lived abroad for 15 years I married and had some kids. Upon deciding to establish my own business in the UK I had a particularly daunting and traumatic experience trying to apply for a spouce visa by myself. Needless to say it is far more complicated than applying for a passport. Long story short, concluding an initial failed attempt leaving me somewhat dumbfounded, I called several firms and fortunately found Westkins. James and Amir are professional, honest, hard working and very good at their job. They have a very good response time and demonstrated patience and a focus on your needs as opposed to their profit. A superb firm managed by great people.
A big thank you for our successful finace application!!
I came across Weskin Associate through a Google search. I had called various firms but speaking to Sophia from Westkin I was assured that Weskin would provide me the kind of service I was looking for. Sophia's depth of knowledge and advice was invaluable. She explained me the whole process for the fiance visa application and the documentation that will be required. I instantly, made an appointment to see her in person.
My application was processed by Amir and James at Weskin. They both provided me the very best and professional service. Both were available to resolve my queries on the phone or in person.
My fiance had previous immigration history and we were worried because of that, our application will take very long to be processed.
But to our surprise our application was successful within weeks. A big thank you goes to Amir and James for their exceptional work and diligence in ensuring our application bundle meets every requirement. Weskin provided the most efficient and effective service.
We have also signed up for Weskin Associates to take forward our next step in the process for my fiance to settle in the UK. Following our wedding in April, we are hoping to apply for the same-day spouse visa and I am certain with the help and advice of Amir and James we won't have a problem in this step. I will update this site early May 2013.
I recommend Weskin Associates for their professional and honest advise from day one!! Many Thanks!!!
Same day appointment
Westkin Associates helped me to arrange the same day appointment for ILR, provided documentation advice and accompanied us on the day. We received professional service from both Shareena in preparation for the appointment and from Adel Abozaima on the day. Thank you for your help!
I want to say a big thank you to Westkin Associates, especially to HASSAN MEHDI on the behalf of my whole family. My partner had been trying to legalise his status in the UK for more than a decade. We had spoken to other lawyers before who made our situation seem pretty hopeless. We almost came to believe that he would never be able to get a valid visa and we would be stuck in this increasingly unbearable limbo forever. That was until we met HASSAN. He never made us feel that we were just one case out of the many, always had time for us and his enthusiasm, dedication and support during this difficult time was second to none. Most importantly, his service proved to be very efficient, finally my partner has got his long awaited visa! I can\'t put it in words what it means to us. We got our life back - thank you HASSAN, thank you Westkin!
