In the UK, the process of asylum offers protection, in the form of refugee status, to you and your family if you are in the UK and fear returning to your home country due to a fear of persecution based on either your religionracenationalitypolitical opinion or membership of a social group.

At Baker Chase Solicitors, we can advise you of the whole asylum process from start to finish and, if need be, provide representations on your behalf in aim of enhancing your prospects of receiving a positive asylum decision. We fully appreciate that claiming asylum in the UK, particularly for an inexperienced asylum seeker, can be a very nervous and daunting experience, particularly as the implications of receiving the incorrect decision can quite literally be life changing. We will ensure that you know exactly what to expect throughout the whole process.  Even if we believe that you are unlikely to qualify for asylum, we may be able to advise you of other ways in which we may be able to assist you in remaining in the UK and other forms of protection that the UK may be able to offer you as an alternative to asylum. We can assist you with any asylum-related matter including assisting you with obtaining financial support, applying for family members to join you in the UK and applying for you to remain in the UK for an indefinite period after a qualifying period, otherwise referred to as indefinite leave to remain in the UK or settlement. We can also assist you in appealing a decision to refuse you and/or your family asylum in the UK
