Other Immigration matters


Asylum Application

The UK has a long history of giving sanctuary to people who have been persecuted in their own country. Foreign nationals or stateless persons who fear persecution may claim asylum in the UK. The country is bound by the European Convention on Human Rights and the United Nations Convention relating to the status of refugees. This means they have a legal duty not to send someone back to a country where they may be tortured or subjected to inhumane treatment or punishment.

Humanitarian Protection

There are situations where someone who is not recognised as a refugee but face a real risk of serious harm if they return to their country of origin, such persons can qualify for Humanitarian protection.

Humanitarian Protection (HP) leave is granted for 5 years and an application for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) can be made after the applicant has completed 5 years residence with Humanitarian Protection (HP) leave.

A statutory declaration is a legal document that is governed by the Statutory Declarations Act 1835. It is a formal statement made in a prescribed manner affirming that something is true to the best knowledge of the Declarant, being the person making the declaration. The statutory declaration will need to be signed in the presence of a solicitor, commissioner for oaths or notary public. The statutory declaration would effectively satisfy some legal requirement, or regulation where perhaps no other such evidence is available.

As an authorised Solicitors firm, Kilby Jones Solicitors can administer your oaths or take affidavits. Please see our Prices list for guidance on how much it costs for Statutory Declaration.
