Asylum Applications

Applicants for asylum in the UK must be able to demonstrate a ‘well founded fear of persecution’ in their home country based on a narrow range of protected characteristics or activities.

It is important to apply for asylum as soon as possible. This might be after you arrive in the UK, or if circumstances in your home country change while you are here for another reason.

The asylum process in the UK involves an initial screening interview with UK Visas & Immigration, follower by more detailed interviews and consideration of your case.

We can provide advice on asylum claims and appeals, and on claims to remain on humanitarian or human rights grounds where an asylum claim is not accepted. We advise you on what documents you will need, and on how to make your application and follow it up.

We also advise on family reunion applications for refugees and UK residents with discretionary leave to remain.

Our in-depth knowledge and vast experience of Refugee and Human Rights Law allows us to provide a comprehensive assessment of your chances of success in light of current legislation, case law and Home Office policy.

  • review rating 5  I used Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors to apply for my spouse visa and the case was dealt with by Mudassir Ali. Mudassir was very friendly and efficient and was certainly an expert in this field with his detailed knowledge and professionalism. The service was excellent from start to finish. The advice and requirements were made very clear to me and Mudassir was very thorough, spending a significant amount of time putting the case together and making sure nothing was missed. I was kept up to date on a regular basis and was successful with the visa being approved quickly and on the first attempt. I would like to thank Mudassir Ali and the staff at Whiterose Blackmans for all their hard work and the excellent service during the case. I would also highly recommend this firm to friends and family in the future. Excellent service and a very happy customer.
