“We were continuously updated on the progress of our case sometimes on daily basis. The service that was provided to us by Keith and his team was tremendous.“
~ Reza Sobhani
Mr.Sobhani is an Iranian citizen who was in the UK visiting his son Reza, who is a British citizen, when Reza realised that his father, who lived alone in Iran, was becoming too frail to be able any longer to manage by himself. He applied for Indefinite Leave to Remain for his father, but the application was refused because UKBA were not satisfied that Mr. Sobhani was financially dependent upon Reza, and also because they said that he had failed to honour the undertaking given at the time he was granted the visit visa, as to the length of his stay in the UK (this application was made before the Immigration Rules were changed in July 2012, making it mandatory for dependent relatives to apply from their home country).
Reza instructed us to act for his father at the appeal, and we worked with him to put together a strong bundle of documents, with medical reports and financial documents covering several years, as well as detailed witness statements. At the hearing the Immigration Judge listened to our legal arguments, and looked at the documents we referred him to, and was satisfied that Mr. Sobhani’s appeal should be allowed.
Mr. Sobhani now has Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK and lives with Reza, who is able to take care of him.
“We found Global Immigration solutions very warm and friendly. We were given an appointment that was convenient for us and was advised of all the documents to take along with us.
As soon as we went there, we were immediately assigned to a lawyer whom we could contact when needed. In the first consultation Keith went through all of our options and advised us of the different outcomes.
Most of solicitors would charge us on a pay as you go basis, this meant every phone call and every email was sent, we would get charged for it. I strongly did not want to do that as the cost would be a lot more. At Global Immigration Solutions we were given an option to pay a standard fee, regardless of the time spent to the case and contacts. I found their fee very reasonable for the amount of work and time they spent on our case comparing to other quotes we received from other firms.
As any other cases with our case communication was very vital for us as we would receive or gather new document each day and needed to update Keith sometimes on daily basis, He was just a phone call away at all times and we did not have to leave a message for someone to get back us. Being able to communicate with him even on his mobile phone when he was away from the desk was great and gave us a lot of confidence.
We were continuously updated on the progress of our case sometimes on daily basis. The service that was provided to us by Keith and his team was tremendous. We are thankful of their help and support and would strongly recommend them to anyone with immigration issues.”
