  1. Immigrant Spouses Must Speak English

    How fair is it that spouses of British Citizens must be able to demonstrate a level of English before being granted a visa to come to the UK? The Supreme Court  rejected a challenge brought by two female British Citizens whose husbands (from Yemen and Pakistan)  want to come to the UK to be with their husbands.

  2. Solicitor guilty of providing illegal immigration advive

    A solicitor has been found guilty of providing unregulated immigration advice and sentenced to 6 months imprisonment. Flora Magdaline Mendes of Luton, pretended she was a regulated solicitor but had, in fact, been suspended by the SRA in January 2013.


  3. Another case of unscrupulous advisers

    Another example of how important it is to get advice from regulated advisers. Two men were ordered to pay £45,000 for providing illegal immigration advice.

  4. The Importance of being Regulated.

    It is a criminal offence for a person to provide immigration advice or services in the UK unless their organisation is regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) or is otherwise covered by the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999. Members of certain professional bodies may give immigration advice without registering with OISC.
