Immigration and Asylum law is a minefield, one person can promise you the right to remain, while another will say you must go back to your country.

Always get a client care letter, (and confirm costs if private work) before instructing anyone. Generally you need a 50% chance of success to get legal aid to pay for your solicitor, so if you cannot get this, and a private solicitor is charging you its likely you will lose your money, although the insanity of immigration decision making mean there’s always a chance you can get papers, or not.

Legal aid pays for very little time, so you need to pay attention to your case, and help your solicitor understand your need for protection.

The Right to Remain Toolkit is good place to start to understand your own case.

So I think if your European, or dependent of a European national this will apply to you.

 

'No I'm not my own is  on British child'.

It may not be for you - its like the rumour that anyone can apply for settlement and lots of asylum seekers did it recently, but it was only for refugees - see a registered OISC advisor (list given)
