Whichever service you take from us, we pride ourselves on the fact that we never limit the amount of emails, calls or appointments you can have with us. If it helps your case, we will ensure you get the time with our leading immigration lawyers.
We take care to choose the best immigration option for you as well as working out in advance if you qualify for the relevant route.
Once clients have indicated that they wish to sign up with us, we send them a client care letter. This provides details of our advice, the nature of your case and the fees we will charge.
This document is important, as it provides in writing all the terms of conditions.
Once the client care letter has been read and you indicate that you wish to proceed, we will ask for an initial payment, usually half of our fee. We then create a list of documents to gather for us based specifically upon the instructions we have taken from you.
You do your best to gather those documents and we are of course on hand to assist in the gathering of those documents.
We then ensure that the application has the best prospect of success by properly completing the form, indexing and cataloguing all the supporting documents, as well as writing details representations on the case and including all the leading case law precedents.
Once the application is sent off, we track it to make sure it arrives in good time and then deal with any correspondence, acknowledgements and queries on your behalf and in conjunction with you until the application is granted.
Westkin undertakes appeal work, and are often instructed when an application by another immigration solicitor is refused.
Before we start any appeal, we usually ask the client to provide us the refusal letter which we assess. We then tell the client the cost of the appeal and the prospects of success.
After the client care letter is signed we usually commence by lodging general grounds of appeal without charge to ensure your appeal rights are kept in place.
After the hearing date has been set by the court, then we provide a detailed action plan to our clients. This involves 2 main parts. The gathering of documents to provide supporting evidence is the first part.
The second part is preparing the witness statements for all the witnesses who will attend the hearing. We work closely to prepare your witness statements to provide the immigration judge all the information he needs as providing persuasive content.
Just before the hearing, we would have pre-hearing appointment to ensure that you were aware of what would occur at the hearing. We would provide details of when to arrive, where to go, what to wear and what to call the judge as well as describing what will happen at the hearing.
During the hearing one of our leading lawyers will accompany you and do their best to assist you in all possible ways.
Once the hearing was over, we would ensure that all further steps to be undertaken were arranged as well as telling you how it went.
Once the appeal was successful, we would ensure the UKBA would then grant the appropriate visa.
