Our Policy

At WFIB we provide immigration service in 4 difference methods that best suit you:

Full Representation

As part of our ongoing commitment to providing value for money, we provide tailored service packages so that you only pay us for the help you need.

We provide a detailed one-off advice session on all asylum, immigration & nationality queries you may have. We first listen to the questions and queries you have and ensure to make a keep a note of them. We then proceed to look at any paperwork that you bring to show us.

Having considered the above we then provide you detailed advice on the circumstances presented to us. Where possible, we will ensure to provide you with various options and then we provide our recommendations on the best course of action available. On most occasions, we will also try to provide you with our indication of success rates on the options we have presented. The final choice is then left for you consider.

We hope that by the end of this detailed advice session, you will be well informed on your original query and of possible future actions for further consideration. No further obligation rests with either yourself or us. However, you may then instruct us to conduct further work if you are content with the advice and service we provided.

Full Representation

This is our complete advice/ representation package. Including the above, we take care of your case from beginning to end. Regardless of the level work involved between you and us or us and a third party relating to your case (eg. the Home Office), we take care of it all at no extra cost.

Our full representation fees are at a fixed price per matter instructed. You will be clear from the beginning how much the legal fees will be. No unexpected surprises on our costs, just complete transparency so that you can manage your finances from the very offset.



We pride ourselves in our appeal and bail hearing advocacy success rates. It is often that legal representatives are appointed close to appeal hearing dates. If you are in a similar position, we will only charge for the specific task of advocacy at the tribunals.We also provide a standalone tribunal representation for hearings as long as we are given a reasonable time to prepare before the hearing. We advocate on cases referred to us by other representatives to appear at for hearings too! Well-prepared cases and comprehensive advocacy at a court of law is vital for a successful outcome. That’s what we do best.
Outreach Visits

We know life is hectic so why make it more difficult?! Instead of trying to find the time to come to us, we can come to you! We can make arrangements to see you at a suitable location of your choice. At a reasonable distance within Waltham Forest, Harringay, Newham, and Redbridge we will only charge the cost of travel in addition to our fees that are payable before our attendance.


Document Checking

If you thinking of arranging and submitting an immigration application or an appeal yourself, you can arrange a document checking service from us. Book an appointment to see us and we will sit down with you and see your completed application form along with the evidence that you intend to submit.

We will provide you our professional opinion on whether your application meets the minimum requirements and also it appears to be adequately prepared. This service is unlike the Post Office or local authority checking services. We simply provide our opinion based on our years of experience and provide useful tips to follow before submission.

Local authority referral base scheme

We are looking towards working with local authorities to provide an essential legal advice service for vulnerable (minors and victims of domestic violence), elderly and low-income based residents with asylum immigration, and nationality matters.

We understand due to recent budget cuts and the huge effect of LASPO since April 2013, it has caused great hardships to individuals accessing legal advice and representation. With very limited and often inaccessible local services within the borough, many individuals tend to lose hope in legalising their immigration status. This often causes a depressive lifestyle, illegal low-paid employment and poor standards of living arrangements within the borough. We want to help. Help us to help those local residents who really need professional advice and representation.

We acknowledge that local councils seek local businesses to supplement such services in order to provide help to those who need it so desperately. Given that almost all immigration matters are now out of scope from public funding, we seek partnerships with local councils to provide a subsidised and in some cases, a completely free pro bono service.

WFIB realise the need to help fellow residents who are particularly disadvantaged and often neglected to overcome their personal and family immigration issues. We want to eliminate their anxiety, So help us to help them!

Voluntary sector referrals

Having years of experience working alongside community and charity-based organisations, we are looking towards working with good relationships in order to help fellow community residents.

We have found that many ethnic residents, especially elder citizens confide more with their own community-led organisations to speak about their financial and immigration issues. We understand how vital it is for such voluntary organisations to help the needy and that’s why we wish to forge strong relationships to serve a common purpose.

Private and corporate partnerships

We hold strong professional relationships with all our clients. You can expect our highest standards at all times and written acknowledgments of all our advice and representations.  We always maintain a very flexible and friendly rapport in order to ensure we achieve what is best for you. One of our specialties is Tier 1 Sponsored License applications for medium-sized corporate organisations and tier 4 Student extension applications. So whether you’re a student embarking on a course of study in the UK or an educational establishment seeking the right clientele, you are sure to succeed with us.
