Successfully assigning a CoS to a Skilled Worker

Successfully assigning a CoS to a Skilled Worker

On April 13, 2021 | In Skilled worker route | By A Y & J Solicitors

Mr. G’s company, unfamiliar with the sponsorship process, had provided Mr. G with a Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) reference number that had been given in a previous application. Mr. X discovered this only when the Home Office issued a letter requiring that the sponsor assigns a new Certificate of Sponsorship within a strict deadline.

Mr. G had submitted his Skilled Worker visa application around 2 months before, and was acutely aware that if the caseworker’s deadlines were missed, or if the CoS was incorrectly assigned, his (and his dependant’s) visa status would be at serious risk.

Mr. G wanted to find support for his sponsor, to get it right this time.

Mr. G tried at least one other company before speaking with us. He wasn’t able to get the swift assistance needed, so, having noticed our positive feedback on Google, decided to give us a call.

Mr. G spoke to our advisors about his circumstances – they quickly assured him that we could assist with the required action and gave a clear overview of the process and timeframes for processing the application.

How did A Y & J Solicitors help the Employee and the Sponsor? 

A Y & J Solicitors’ team of UK immigration lawyers consulted directly with Mr.G and his employer to gather the relevant information to assess the case, as a first step.

A Y & J Solicitors have extensive experience in the field and made sure to carefully review all the data provided against the immigration rules, to reassure the client of the viability of the application.

Satisfied all the relevant details had been checked thoroughly and any relevant feedback delivered to the client clearly and promptly, A Y & J Solicitors arranged a mutually convenient time to remotely assist the sponsor with assigning the CoS, ensuring every detail was correctly entered onto the Sponsor Management System.

The Result 

Mr. G’s visa application was approved a few weeks later and he can continue working for his sponsor. Mr. G was grateful for the quick, precise, and friendly support to overcome the unexpected challenge faced.

The experience made Mr. G and his sponsor very aware of how much of a minefield sponsorship can be… but equally they also have also discovered, through choosing with A Y & J Solicitors, how smooth the process can be, with good quality, responsive support.
