How we work

AtSSC Legal Directhere are the steps we normally go through with each client:

  1. We discuss your requirements and the options available. This is face-to-face in our office or by phone.
  2. We confirm in writing the outcome of the consultation. This will include the following:
  • We state the information you provided.
  • We explain the UK laws that apply to your situation.
  • We set out a fixed fee quote and time estimate for your application.
  • We describe the steps and documents required for your application.
  • If you decide to proceed then the remaining steps are as follows:
  1. We check that we have all documents required and that they are correct and consistent with the application.
  2. We write a letter of representation demonstrating that you meet all legal requirements and addressing any issues.
  3. Where applicable, we provide you with guidance on attending a visa application centre and any interview.
  4. We will request you to check and sign the application form.
  5. We submit the application to the Home Office (Visas and Immigration Government UK)
  6. We deal with queries from the Home Office that may arise during the application processing.
  7. We will provide you with regular updates while your case is in progress.
  8. We will notify you of the outcome as soon as we receive a decision.
  • We will notify you to collect your documents or arrange to post the documents by Royal Mail recorded delivery at your request.

Your case will be personally handled by the same adviser from start to finish. At any stage in the process you can contact this advisor to ask questions or discuss any concerns.

If for any reason an application fails, we will refer you to a higher level accredited advisor or you may wish to submit a ‘fresh application’ in which case we can assist you.

How the Home Office works

The Home Office expects to receive the correct application forms, correct supporting documents and fee all together. Applications are usually decided on these papers only, so preparation and presentation of information are crucial to success. Information once supplied cannot be removed. If your application is refused, you will lose the application fee and it can be more difficult for a future application to succeed.
