Highlights

read more › The recognised union of two partners who intend to spend the rest of their lives together is, for many, the happiest and most memorable day of their lives. At Baker Chase Solicitors, we understand that the 'honeymoon period' of a marriage can be full of new found emotions as well as the realisation of new responsibilities and challenges. We therefore appreciate that having to leave your partner in a foreign country during this period could be a very anxious, difficult and upsetting time. We aim to resolve any barriers preventing you from being with your partner in a quick and professional manner so that you can continue your life here together in the UK.

read more › At Baker Chase Solicitors, we fully appreciate that in many instances, the request to visit the UK may be more of a 'need' rather than a 'want'. Nobody wants to miss an important family wedding, a long-awaited sibling reunion or the final stages of an elderly loved one's life. At Baker Chase Solicitors we aim to 'bring life' to your application so that it is not considered as just another visitor visa application. Rather, we aim to raise the importance of the 'need' to visit to UK and will prepare your application with this in mind.

read more › At Baker Chase Solicitors, we appreciate that receiving the status of a British Citizen can be the end of a very long fought battle to regularise your status in the UK and can therefore be a very momentous and emotive occasion. As such, we always prepare such applications with the magnitude of the occasion in mind. If you have been granted permission to remain in the UK for an indefinite period, you may, after a qualifying period, be eligible to apply for 'naturalisation' as a British Citizen.

read more › The fundamental basic rights inherent to all persons are often termed as 'human rights'. In the UK, human rights are largely protected by the Human Rights Act 1998, which incorporated the European Convention on Human Rights ('ECHR'). More recently, the UK has attempted to incorporate human rights into the Immigration Rules although it is disputed as to the extent to which appropriate protection has been afforded to such rights. This has resulted in human rights based applications being made 'inside the Rules' and 'outside the Rules'.

read more › If you are a student from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, and wish to enrol on an educational course in the UK, you must apply for a student visa. You will require either a Tier 4 (General) student visa or a Tier 4 (Child) student visa. In either event, is very important that you fully satisfy all the relevant immigration rules to avoid your visa application being rejected. At Baker Chase Solicitors we appreciate that applying for a visa to study in the UK is likely to be an important step to your brighter future and so we will always ensure that we prepare your application with this in mind.

read more › The UK's decision to exit the European Union (in a landmark decision commonly referred to as 'Brexit') has raised widespread concern and uncertainty regarding the future rights of both European citizens living in the UK and UK citizens living in other European member states, although the UK government is likely to provide further clarity on the matter during the 'Brexit' transitional period.

read more › If your family member or friend is currently in detention at either an Immigration Removal Centre, a detention centre or prison, it may be possible to make a bail application to secure their release. The bail application may be made to either a Chief Immigration Officer ('CIO bail') or before a court ('B1 bail'). The grounds to request for a detainee to be released on bail, and the likelihood of bail being granted, are determined by many factors, and so will be assessed on a case by case basis.

read more › If you are over the age of 25 and have resided in the UK for a continuous period of at least 20 years you may be eligible to apply to remain in the UK under the 'Private Life' provisions. If you are between the ages of 18 to 25 you may be eligible to apply if you have resided in the UK for a continuous period of at least half your life. If you are under 18 years of age, you may be eligible to apply if you have resided in the UK for a continuous period of at least 7 years. In most of the aforesaid cases, you will be eligible to apply for settlement in the UK, subject to satisfying all the relevant Rules.

read more › In the UK, the process of asylum offers protection, in the form of refugee status, to you and your family if you are in the UK and fear returning to your home country due to a fear of persecution based on either your religion; race; nationality; political opinion or membership of a social group. At Baker Chase Solicitors, we can advise you of the whole asylum process from start to finish and, if need be, provide representations on your behalf in aim of enhancing your prospects of receiving a positive asylum decision.

read more › If a family member or friend is currently in detention awaiting deportation from the UK, it is important to note that, in most circumstances, the grounds for deportation can be challenged with a view of preventing the proposed deportation. An accepted challenge to the proposed deportation could either temporarily or permanently prevent your friend/family member from being deported from the UK. It is important to note, however, that once served with papers authorising their deportation from the UK, your friend/family member will be subject to stringent deadlines by which they can challenge their proposed deportation and so time is likely to be of the essence.

read more › Our team at Baker Chase Solicitors love reuniting people, none more so than a parent with their child. If you have a parent or a child in the UK with whom you are looking to reunite, or perhaps another close family member who is settled in the UK, rest assured that we will do everything that we can to resolve any barriers that are preventing you from being with your family member so that you can continue your life here together in the UK.

read more › At Baker Chase Solicitors, we appreciate the loyalty, dedication and sacrifices made by both past and serving members of our HM Armed Forces and their families. Our HM Armed Forces comprise of members from diverse backgrounds and nationalities all working together to protect our national borders and interests, be it domestically in the UK or in international territories.

read more › It is a fundamental and established facet of the legislative framework in the UK that, on making any decision affecting children, primary consideration must be given to the welfare of the child, particularly if the child is a British Citizen. If you are in the UK and have a child in the UK who is a British Citizen you may be eligible to make an application to remain in the UK based on your status as the parent of a British Citizen. If your child in the UK is not a British Citizen, but has nevertheless resided in the UK for at least 7 years, you may still be eligible to make an application to remain in the UK.

read more › If you are currently in the UK on a 'limited stay' spouse visa (ie. a spouse visa which has an expiry date) and have been subjected to domestic violence whilst living in the UK with your spouse, you should note that you are not required to continue living with your violent partner in order to remain in the UK. In fact, you could secure your future settlement in the UK without the support of your partner. Unfortunately, domestic violence victims are all too often under the misapprehension that they are only permitted to stay in the UK with the support of their violent partner, which is also a view that is often held by their violent partners.

read more › If you are the bereaved partner or child of someone who has had settled status in the UK, or served in HM Armed Forces, you may be eligible to apply to remain in the UK in your own right. We appreciate that the emotions of losing your partner or parent can be turbulent enough without the added uncertainty of not knowing if you will now be permitted to remain in the UK. Whether you are permitted to stay in the UK, and on what basis, will be dependent on the particulars of your individual case. This is likely to depend in most cases on the visa category for which you are currently in the UK, the UK status of your deceased partner/parent and how long you have been in the UK.

read more › Receiving a letter from the Home Office notifying you that your immigration application has been refused can be a very worrying time, particularly if your situation is further aggrieved by the fact that you may not have any right to appeal the refusal decision. If you are fortunate to have applied in an immigration category which still attracts a right of appeal, it should be clearly stated on the refusal letter. Although you may have been given a right to appeal a refusal decision, it is important to note that this does not necessarily mean that you have legitimate grounds to appeal the refusal decision.

read more › If you have a parent or grandparent who is abroad and who requires long-term personal care as a result of their old age, an illness or a disability, and they are unable to obtain the level of care they require in their country, they may be eligible to apply for an adult dependant visa. As well as satisfying other requirements, you will need to demonstrate not only that you can provide the level of care that is required by your dependant relative, but also that you have the financial means to support them whilst they are in the UK without any recourse to public funding.

read more › If you have a business idea, with sufficient investment funds in place, and the skills and know-how to transform your business aspirations into a successful running business our journey to secure your future as a successful entrepreneur in the UK, our experienced and professional solicitors can help transform your business idea into a running UK business. At Baker Chase Solicitors we have many years of experience and expertise in assisting the global mobility of high net-worth individuals who wish to bring their business ideas to the UK.

read more › The prospect of having to pay a substantial civil penalty for the alleged employment of illegal workers can be a very daunting and worrying situation, particularly if the imposition and/or amount of the penalty is not deemed to be justified. We appreciate that, particularly for small businesses, the payment of a substantial penalty can result in closure and often more serious far reaching implications such as company liquidation and/or even personal bankruptcy. This would be particularly unfortunate if payment of the penalty could have been avoided or substantially reduced.
