We are a specialised UK immigration law firm.
This video is about ILR or Settlement application. I will be sharing a case study on a long residency.
If you have completed ten years continuous lawful residence in the UK then you may qualify for settlement / permanent residency in the UK.
You wish to continue your stay or prefer to be settled in the UK for various reasons including but not limited to the better law and order situation, sense of safety & security, finest democratic environment, excellent justice system, better life style in a very well-developed country.
A non-exhaustive requirement to qualify for this application shall be ten years of continuous lawful residence, Life in the UK test, English Language qualification, no criminal conviction and any other requirement based on the relevant immigration rules at the time of application.
Let me share our recent success.
A very high profile, NON-EU permanent diplomat, I would call him here as ‘Mr FM’ who instructed us for his settlement application. He was exempt from immigration control for more than ten years in the UK with a diplomatic status valid during the period of his employment. Though he was exempt from immigration control, he was not settled or permanent residence in the UK.
We provided a complete hand holding support to achieve a positive outcome for this client.
Mr FM was benefited with his highly desirable Permanent Residency (i.e. Indefinite leave to remain or Settlement) in the UK.
Complicating factors to consider for this case were:
Number 1 – Mr FM was a very busy, high profile diplomat with very limited time resources for his Immigration application.
Number 2 – Mr FM was on a diplomatic visa (i.e. exempt from immigration control). Therefore, his application could not have been considered straight away under his visa category.
We managed to conquer all above challenges successfully for our client. This was only possible due to our:
1. Strong understanding the UK immigration rules on Long Residency.
2. Our close relationship with niche barristers who are specialised in the UK immigration rules.
3. A strong, innovative legal team with a positive outlook to assist our client.
The expert team at A Y & J Solicitors has had success with gaining Indefinite leave to remain for clients in a variety of challenging circumstances. We were able to obtain settlement also known as Indefinite leave to remain (ILR) for these clients using our experience, expertise and innovative mindset. We have secured future for honest, hard-working people as a result of our expertise and determination.

Hello. If you are struggling with any immigration issues, I can strongly recommend A Y & J Solicitors. One phone call we made to them on Jan 2018 has changed our lives. We thought of going back to India when we got a refusal for ILR, it was due to a tax amendment, but after speaking to Yash, they provided with a best option in making a fresh application. Took over our case in the last week of January and with in 5 months we got the result. We will never forget the mental stress we have gone through ,as the first application we made was in September 2016 and after waiting for 1.5 years got a refusal. That is when we found A Y & J Solicitors. We can’t thank enough AY & J for the support, assurance, value and respect they give to the clients. We dealt with Yash, Waleed, Zareen and Sok Wei regarding our case. All the team of A Y & J Solicitors are very good at the communication and I have seen the clear difference of this after we moved to them from our previous solicitors. I would like to request all the readers: please guys if you are struggling with any immigration issues, please give them a call. They will give you a straight answer on analysing the case. I know how hard it is to cope up with the stress in immigration issues. Would definitely recommend them. I hope they succeed in all the future cases and see much more success.
Me and my wife would like to take this opportunity in thanking A Y & J Solicitors for the very efficient and professional way they handled our case. From the very beginning, they guided us in the correct direction. Finally, I received my settlement visa and I am much confident Diana will do everything to sort out my wife’s visa as my wife’s case is complex than my one. Things I like about A Y & J Solicitors are top end professional service, approachability, reliability, and honesty. I would definitely recommend to anyone who has complex immigration situation without any hesitation.
A Y & J managed my ILR (10 Years) application and I am extremely happy with the professional approach and the level of service received. There was a technical Abstruseness with the application but they pointed it out efficiently. Special thanks to Yash Dubal And Waleed Hussain for being extremely supportive during the entire application process and making sure that the application submitted had a good presentation. I would definitely use A Y & J Solicitors again for any future immigration needs and highly recommend them for professional and reliable immigration service
