Our Appeals Services

Immigration appeals can be a worrying process, and we understand the concerns which can come with receiving a UK visa refusal. In reality, refused visas are very common, and many individuals have to go through the visa appeals process before achieving success.

At Westkin, our lawyers are highly trained and have helped a number of individuals through the UK visa immigration appeal process. We have a high immigration appeal success rate, and it is our goal to help as many individuals as possible with their entry to the UK.

I have dealt with Westkin twice, with regards to a complex application and their service was very professional and up to a very high standard. My case went on appeal and what I particularly appreciated is that, instead of dealing with the appeal in-house, they hired an external expert in this field to give my case the best chance. This is what putting the customer first means.

Further detail

Detailed information about our Appeals service

Receiving an immigration refusal can be a stressful time. Often, the UK government will give reasons as to why they have refused a visa application, and this information can be vital in ensuring your success in the visa appeal process.

It is important to work to ensure all the points risen in the refusal letter is addressed at the immigration hearing. Leading up to the date, we prepare and analyse the case to ensure you stand a good chance in front of the judge.

The starting point is always looking at the reasons for refusal. It is well-advised to understand that the grounds for appeal are brought against what is raised in the reasons for refusal by the Home Office. For the appeal, the applicant is not required to cover all the requirements of the immigration rules again; instead, they should just address the reasons for the refusal.

Given how important it is to lodge the appeal forms in time, our immigration lawyers often lodge your appeal before taking any professional fees. Our immigration specialists provide a number of services for clients who wish to appeal a refusal from the Home Office. This includes:

  • Handling the case from start to finish.
  • We fully prepare vital documents, such as the witness statements and skeleton arguments
  • We advise on what documentation is required to take to court.
  • We instruct counsel on your behalf where necessary.
  • We organise to ensure all timing deadlines are met.
  • The bundles are prepared in a professional way so that they include full indexing, pagination and copies made to all necessary parties.
  • We brief the client so that they know what to expect on the day.
  • We ensure we do what we can to give your case the best chance of success.
  • Once the appeal is allowed, we will follow up to ensure your visa is endorsed as soon as possible.
  • Should the appeal be dismissed, we will advise you on what options you may have then.

Westkin lawyers are trained to ensure we quote a fixed fee before we start any work. This is so that our clients can have peace of mind that there will be no nasty surprises later on down the line. We instruct the best barristers so you can be sure that we will be as prepared as possible in order to have a successful appeal.
