My partner (a US citizen) was refused entry to the UK. I immediately researched on-line for solicitors and companies specializing in UK immigration law. There were several, but fortunately for us, I found UK Immigration Services and after a phone call to Nelam, I decided to take up the offer of a consultation to discuss the circumstances.
I remember deciding that I was going to appoint Nelam and her team before the consultation was even over, that's how well she presented her experiences and knowledge of such issues and dealing with the UK Home Office. Gerard Harrison was appointed to deal with our case which he did in a very professional way, always a prompt reply to any of my emails, and addressing our concerns.
He guided us through the process and paperwork, and produced documentation that contained all the relevant details which were eventually presented to the British Embassy with my partners application. My partner's settlement visa was granted on the first application, we couldn't have been happier!
The fees charged are sensible and worth it in my opinion. I would recommend UK Immigration Services to anyone who has any issues with UK Visas/Immigration issues for their partner or family.Ken Patterson - Maritime Engineer, Hampshire,
We were not happy with the Solicitor dealing with our case. UKIS were recommended to us, we contacted them for a consultation and without hesitation instructed UKIS to handle our case. In June 2015 we received the good news that our case had been successful. Thank you so much to Nelam, Hardeep and Gerard - you handled our case professionally and we were never left wondering what was happening, we never had to chase you. Having UKIS handle our case took away a lot of the stress we were experiencing. We can now enjoy our lives and go on holidays as a family, a luxury most people take for granted. UKIS provide a friendly professional service, they have high ethical standards and we would recommend them to anyone facing immigration problems.
Thank you !Mihaela & Ardian Alija, London,
UKIS helped me and my wife in obtaining her visa. Right from the very beginning of the process they were there for us every step of the way. I am so pleased that I decided to instruct them. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending their services to anyone who needs the assistance of an immigration lawyer. Great company, great people and above all great service!Lee Alaba - Property Consultant, London,
After having a visa application rejected due to inaccurate legal advice from another firm, my husband and I were cautious about choosing a lawyer to work with. We spoke to a number of other lawyers, none of whom impressed us quite like Nelam did. From our initial meeting and all throughout the process, she provided the most clear and practical advice and instruction.
Nelam and Gerard were both excellent at answering questions clearly and demystifying the rules and requirements of our visa. They both fielded a number of anxious emails from me, and dealt with my concerns in a professional and kind manner. Thanks to UKIS, my application was very thorough and professionally presented, and it was accepted within 24 hours of being received by the Home Office, in spite of the previous refusal.
Working with Nelam and Gerard made an otherwise scary and overwhelming visa process manageable and straightforward. I would absolutely recommend UKIS, and I fully intend to return to them for future visa and Indefinite Leave to Remain needs.Mr. and Mrs. Hudson, Surrey,
I would like to acknowledge the exceptional work of Nelam Trewin who has supported us throughout the whole journey all the way to successful completion of our settlement visa application. Nelam's support provided us with peace of mind as she truly cares about her clients. For Nelam, what she does every day for people is more than 'just a job'. She is making a big difference in people's lives at the most challenging periods and I am forever grateful for my friend's recommendation to use her services.Lucia Hoxha, Yoga Teacher, Well-Being Coach, NLP Practitioner Member of Global Institute for Extraordinary Women
I am very glad that Nelam fought my case. UKIS were highly recommended. Despite me being diagnosed with a terminal illness the British Embassy refused my husband's application to join me in the UK. Your robust and professional approach resulted in my husband being granted a visa. I thank you for all your support and your caring approach. Thank you Nelam for listening and understanding on the occasions I was an emotional wreck. I could not have achieved this speedy result on my own. I am now enjoying every moment of life with my husband.Jasbinder Kaur, Teacher, Oldbury

Excellent service, thorough with paperwork and advice - very impressive!Robert Crockart , Alliance Healthcare
UK Immigration Services was recommended to me by a retired Entry Clearance Officer, that was in 2003. Since then I have used their services to help many of my students who had fairly complex cases. Their advice has always been honest and their services professional with realistic fees. In particular I would like to express my gratitude to Nelam and Quentin who have worked extremely hard and travelled abroad on numerous occasions to represent my students.Atul Sharma - Managing Director, Studies in UK, Delhi
My wife and I were very stressed by the complex immigration rules. We spent hours trying to make sense of all the changes and had spoken to many lawyers, who provided conflicting advice. We feared being separated. Having researched many companies, we contacted UKIS and arranged a consultation with Nelam. The consultation addressed our concerns, our options were clearly explained to us. We were impressed by the consultation and confident that UKIS were the best company to represent us. UKIS provided a very smooth application process, detailed exactly what we needed to do, and prepared an impeccable case in the cover letter and application. I was kept up to date by both Nelam and Gerard and didn’t have to chase them for information at any point. We were absolutely over the moon and incredibly excited to hear that the application had been approved and I did not have to leave the UK, and now we can get our life officially underway. We are forever grateful to Nelam and Gerard. UKIS are wonderful and we wouldn't recommend anyone else.Danni & Chris Little, Lincolnshire
