Please note: Unless you are a person who is regulated by a designated professional body or you are registered or exempted by the Office of the Immigration Service Commissioner (OISC) to provide immigration advice you must not use the information contained in this answer to advise an individual. If you do so, you may be breaking the law and may be liable to prosecution.
The Migrant Children’s Project has put together these fact sheets to provide individuals who are unable to access immigration advice and/or representation with some general advice about representing themselves in an immigration case. It is not possible to cover everything that someone might need to know about making an immigration application because immigration law is complicated and each case is different. For more information on legal aid in general, see our legal advice and representation fact sheets.
If you would like advice on any of the information in the fact sheets, you can call the Migrant Children’s Project advice line on 0207 636 8505 or email email@example.com.
