Permanent residence

Permanent residence
Becoming a Permanent Resident is the first step in applying for British Citizenship and ensures that you are able to continue living and working in the UK unimpeded. If you have been living and working in the UK for some time you should consider an application for Permanent Residency and our team of experienced solicitors is here to help you every step of the way.

If your application is successful, you will be granted a status of a Permanent Resident which will enable you to access many public services enjoyed by British Nationals. It is also the first step to obtaining British Citizenship.

There is no need to take a language test or “Life in the UK Test”, which is required for British citizenship.

Especially now, it is crucial that you seek specialist legal advice at the outset and prior to making any type of immigration application. It is necessary for the application to succeed and to avoid delays and unnecessary expense of re submitting your application to the Home Office.

As a general rule, you are eligible to apply for Permanent residency providing that you have lived in the UK for a period of five years during which you have either, studied, worked, or sought employment.

There may be other exceptional circumstances in which you will qualify for Permanent Residency. Contact our specialist immigration solicitors to find out more.
 
Why we provide the best legal advice and representation in relation to your application
 
We are a UK Solicitors law firm and are fully authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), as a professional law firm we are exempt from authorisation by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC). Many businesses offering immigration services are only OISC regulated and as such they do not represent before Courts or Tribunals when it comes to challenging of the Home Office decisions.

Our firm does not employ sales staff to “advise” you, our consultations are always handled by lawyers.

When you instruct us, qualified immigration solicitors will supervise your case to ensure no time and money is wasted and more importantly that no mistakes are made.

Please remember that if a person that is not a qualified solicitor or a person authorized by the OISC provides immigration advice or services, this person commits a criminal offence.
