Family Cases

Working for you and with you

Contact Westkin Assocaites today on 0207 118 4546 or by email via info@westkin.com to see how we can help you with all of your immigration matters. Choosing Westkin Associates means building the right team around you to handle the complex details of your case. We pride ourselves on achieveing results in a clear, detailed and supportive manner.

The most common, successful type of claim made under Human Rights in the immigration field is when a foreign national, who has no valid visa, is allowed to remain in the UK on the basis of his family life. These immigration applications, known as Human Rights applications are made under Article 8.

Choosing Westkin Associates is, without doubt, your first step in building the strongest case possible to achieve the outcome that you desire. Our team of immigration lawyers specialises in analysing the complexities of your case, providing the most sound legal advice and guiding you through each step of the, often intricate, process. 

When is an Article 8 case appropriate?

There are many occasions when an Article 8 family life case would be appropriate. In cases where a foreign national has overstayed his visa, but has developed a relationship, if there are children or other compassionate factors then the courts have indicated the normal expectation that the foreign national go home can be removed.

What this means is that the foreign national normally has to leave the U.K if he has no visa, but in the situation where there are children, the prevailing view of the courts has been that the applicant should not have to leave the U.K to regularize his stay as this is not in the best interests of the child.

Our lawyers are experienced in fighting these case both by way of application and on appeal.

The key to winning these is usually evidence. Through our immigration lawyers, and their many years of experience, assistance and guidance will help to ensure that we present the correct evidence, this is usually detailed evidence setting out the compassionate circumstances or the children or both.

Of key importance to the immigration case is the ensuring of detailed evidence confirming that the child was born in the U.K and what role the migrant plays in the child’s life submitting this crucial information before the decision maker, whether that be the UKBA or an immigration judge.

Linked to this is the importance of providing accurate witness statements in these highly complex cases. Witness statements allow for our clients and their partners to set out their side of the story in their own words. This is important as it gives the decision maker the real story behind the documents.

Contact our team of experienced lawyers who are on hand to assist in identifying the grounds for your case and advising you on the best way to proceed. We pride ourselves on offering clear and expert advice that will place you in the best position possible to build a strong case and achieve the decision that you want.
