What do they say about us?

  • Great expert advice

    The Home Office rejected my application to stay in the UK with my wife and I asked Usman at Ansar to help me appeal against the decision. The appeal was successful. This was important for me because my wife and other close family members live in the UK and I did not want to be separated from them. I was happy with Usman because throughout the appeals process I felt he really cared about me and my case and gave really great expert advice that has ultimately helped me stay with my family.”

    Great expert advice
    Ecuadorian Woman

Ansar helps to defend the human rights of migrants in same sex couples.

  • I definitely recommend this law firm

    “I applied for a Spouse visa to the UK authorities. They stated that they aimed to make a decision within 3 months. After 2 months I received a letter from them – they mentioned a Supreme Court case and said that they were unable to process my application so my case would be on hold. I received my documents back without a visa and without any explanation.

    One of my London friends recommended Ansar. Before applying with Ansar, for 4 months I was really suffering – it was such a difficult situation, waiting really felt like it was killing me. I was stressed. Living separately put a lot of strain on me and my husband as a couple.

    Within a month, Ansar sent 2 Pre action letters to the UK authorities and very soon after the second Pre action letter, they made a decision on my application and asked me to resubmit my passport for my visa.

    I was very impressed with Ansar’s service. Wow. What a great experience. They were polite and professional and at very short notice they started to deal with my case. They were talking to me throughout to make sure I was informed about what was going on. They were kind, very patient and extremely professional – they were happy to answer any questions and help in any way they can.

    I definitely recommend this law firm.”

    I definitely recommend this law firm
