" All EU nationals who have not become British must make an application for settled or pre-settled status in order to be able to continue residing in the UK. This includes EU nationals who have lived in the UK for their whole lives and includes EU nationals who have previously obtained a document certifying permanent residence.

The deadline to make an application under the EU Settlement Scheme was the 30th June 2021 for most people who were residing in the UK, however, it may be possible to apply after this deadline in certain situations. There are also other types of applications for family members based abroad, that will still be accepted after the 30th June 2021.

Before we take on a case we always want to establish what the right kind of application is for you and this is what the Assessment Stage is all about.

We find out more about you and what you want to achieve. It is an informal discussion which can be delivered how you want it, whether that is over the phone, using video conferencing or at our easily accessible office - it is entirely your choice.

This stage is completely free and there is no obligation to take on our paid services. At the end of the Assessment Stage you will have a clear plan as to the range of applications available, the costs involved and how likely you are to get a successful outcome.

Take advantage of this free legal advice from the UK's leading immigration lawyers:
