Asylum & Human Rights

The UK is world-renowned for providing a safe place to those seeking asylum. But the asylum application process can be complex and daunting. Our Immigration lawyers can help those claiming asylum or who have a Human Rights claim.

Seeking asylum in the UK

Asylum law is incredibly complex. The UK Home Office will decide whether a person is in need of protection under the 1951 Refugee Convention, or if a person’s human rights are at stake.

Knowing what rights and protections are available to you can help you to properly explain your situation to the Home Office. When preparing your application for asylum it is essential that you receive legal advice from a specialist immigration solicitor.

Asylum is an area of law that is largely governed by International Agreements with a high degree of discretion. Our Immigration lawyers are able to guide you through this complex process of claiming asylum in the UK and can meet you for an initial discussion on what you can expect when you claim asylum in the UK.
