Immigration for Individuals

At Truth Legal, our expert Immigration solicitors are here to help you navigate complex UK Immigration Law.

Headed up by leading immigration expert, Louis MacWilliam, we provide comprehensive advice for all individual Immigration law matters, however complex they may be.

How we can help


We offer an initial consultation by telephone or video chat.  Often this is enough to either answer any query you have or to determine whether we can effectively assist you with your case.  If you then choose to have a one of our Immigration solicitors review your case in detail, including written advice, then this is normally a charged-for service at £500.

As part of a more detailed consultation we will either attend with you in person, by telephone or video link, to take detailed instructions. We will review relevant documentation and then provide detailed Immigration Law advice orally and in writing. We will consider which routes are available to you and the relevant application process and supporting documentation required.

We can usually provide consultations at short notice, almost always within a week, often the same day.

Immigration Applications

We will provide a detailed consultation as above. We will then assist you in the preparation and submission of the relevant application. This includes reviewing supporting documents and the application, drafting representations, and sending the documents to the Home Office.

Court/Tribunal work

In matters before the court or tribunal, there are various different stages of work involved. These include:

  • Bail Application
    Preparing the Bail Application and Grounds of Bail.
  • Representation at Bail Hearings
    Preparing the Bail Application, including advising on required documents, reviewing documents, and submitting documents to the Tribunal. Also includes briefing counsel. Note that a separate fee will be payable to Counsel.
  • Lodging Grounds of Appeal to the First Tier Tribunal
    Completing the relevant Appeal Form and drafting separate Grounds of Appeal.
  • Court representation in the First Tier Tribunal
    Advising and reviewing required documents, drafting witness statements, preparing bundle, briefing Counsel, and all work up to a decision from the Tribunal.
  • Applications for Permission to Appeal to the Upper Tribunal
    Preparing Application for Permission to Appeal to the Upper Tribunal and liaising with Counsel. Note that a separate fee will likely be payable for Counsel to draft grounds.
  • Representation in the Upper Tribunal
    Preparing a supplementary bundle and liaising with Counsel.


The timescales involved in your case can vary greatly depending on the complexity of the case and whether your case relates to an application, appeal or judicial review.

Most applications for leave to remain, entry clearance or nationality applications are decided within six months, unless they are considered by the Home Office to be ‘complex’, in which case they can take longer to be decided.

The length of time it takes for an appeal to be heard can vary greatly, depending on how busy the tribunal is at any given time. Typically, it will take between three and 12 months for an appeal to be heard.

Judicial reviews can be particularly slow-moving. It will often take around three to five months for a permission hearing to be listed. It can take over a year for the matter to proceed to a full hearing, if contested.
