Dillex has a national reputation for its immigration work. Our lawyers understand that having irregular immigration status or a family member with an immigration problem can be extremely stressful. We aim to offer an efficient, sympathetic and cost-effective service to our clients.

Dillex can help if you have a problem with entering, or settling in the UK; if you want to enter the UK to work, or set up your own business, or to study - or you want to settle with a partner or bring a family member to the UK. We also offer advice to immigration detainees who have been unlawfully detained.

Unlike many other immigration law firms which are more narrowly focused, our immigration lawyers handle all aspects of the work - everything from business immigration through to asylum. This means we have a huge breadth of knowledge and experience to draw on when coming up with the best solution to our clients’ problems.

Below is a detailed list of key areas of work handled by our immigration team. This list is not exhaustive and even if your particular problem does not appear in the list contact us as we may be able to help or assist you by directing you to the best people to approach.
