Asylum Applications & Appeals
If you are looking to live in the UK, or have had such a request denied, contact Whitestone Solicitors today on 0800 8 101010 for expert legal advice on every aspect of the asylum application and appeals process. Our rates are highly competitive and we give full details on costs from the very first meeting, ensuring you’re not hit by any surprising charges during this critical process.
Our expert legal team has 30 years experience in dealing with a host of cases similar to yours, representing asylum seekers from a wide range of countries and circumstances. We deal with every aspect of the asylum process, from entry clearance, human rights issues, deportation, and citizenship.
In recent years, the UK courts have made it substantially more difficult for asylum seekers to achieve a valid application. However, international laws such as the 1951 UN Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees mean that if your refugee status is valid, you should be allowed in and your asylum application should be succesful.
To qualify for refugee status, you must be fleeing persecution in your home country. This can cover a variety of issues dealing with human rights, from torture and other inhumane treatment through to unjust laws and punishments. If you are likely to be punished for something which flouts the European Convention on Human Rights, your case stands a good chance of success.
However, if you do not fit this criteria, it is unlikely you will be granted refugee status in the UK. In any case, it is always worth seeking the advice of a specialist team such as Whitestone Solicitors in order to properly determine your chances. If there is no chance whatsoever of being given refugee status, we may be able to recommend other avenues for entering the UK.
There are many reasons you may face unfair persecution in your home country. This could range from elements such as your political alliance through to your race, your sexuality, or your past actions. In order to make a successful asylum application or appeal, it is crucial that the courts fully understand every aspect of your case.
Our specialist advisors work in close conjunction with each of our clients in order to present the best possible argument for you to be granted asylum seeker or refugee status. If you have a friend or relative who is looking to gain asylum status in the UK, you should contact Whitestone Solicitors as soon as possible in order to give adequate time to build a strong case. We would always recommend applying for asylum as soon as possible - ideally before leaving your home country.
