When you have served us your information and documents, we will send you directions which would include paying our final fees (unless you have paid us in full at the initial stage). Once payment is received and confirmed, we will start working on your file. We term this stage as part of our case working process.

Both the information and documentation provided will enable us to assess your application file in full. In all applications to the Home Office, evidences are a crucial part of their decision making, so we will help, advise and answer questions related to the documents provided to us. When you provide us with information related to the application, we will advise on recommended evidences to be enclosed.

Your dedicated Lawyer who is preparing your application file, will advise on any alternative evidences and answer any questions you may have. Our job is to help you through the complex legal system and ensure the relevant policies & regulations are being met.
As we embark on our case working process, your dedicated Lawyer will complete the correct application and will go over the evidences. We may email you further documents or information at this stage.

Our legal representation letter will set out any discretionary or exceptional circumstances to be considered including any new legal matters, so the Home Office can consider your personal circumstances.

Where an application relates to an application being lodged outside of the UK, ICS Legal may prepare additional documents depending on your personal circumstances and will ensure those documents are prepared to further strengthen your application to the Home Office.

Home Office may wish to interview you as part of the application decision. This forms part of their considerations and we will advise you on how the process would work including questions that they may ask you.

We understand that most information on the internet provides a daunting overview of this process however this is not the case always. The idea behind the interview is to clarify your personal circumstances and evidences submitted. In all event, we are here to help and guide you. 
We understand waiting on a decision can be both stressful and daunting. Rest assured, ICS Legal will manage this and respond to any questions or evidence requested. In some applications, the Home Office may ask you to send further details and we will advise you on what needs to be provided.

Once they have served us a decision, we will update you as soon as it arrives. 
If your application is refused by the Home Office, the decision letter will inform us the rights to appeal, submit further representation or conduct an administrative reviews. We will assess the refusal letter and advise you on your next options. Time and costs are important factors of your decision making.

Where the matter proceeds on an appeal, there are a number of legal options available at each stages and an appeal process are not exhaustive list of events.

ICS Legal will advise you on initial steps to take and will always work to resolve your matter quickly rather than prolonging the legal matter. This helps you save costs and time. For example, when an application is refused, we will advise on the merits to the appeal, and lodge the appeal through the Tribunal for the Home Office to review their decision.

Usually Home Office will serve a decision to the Tribunal and if the decision is maintained, we will then advise on the next steps with costs. This then applies to the matter going before the First Tier Tribunal and the Upper Tribunal including judicial review processes.

The UK legal system are complex and we will have rights to challenge decisions through various legal remedy. This may include challenging the matter through a judicial review process.

Naturally, we understand that you may have questions, please always speak to us and our directions are usually served in writing.
