Immigration and residency

Our expert team of immigration lawyers, based in Edinburgh and Glasgow, can help solve your immigration issues quickly and cost effectively. Immigration law changes frequently and it can be difficult to keep up to date. A small error in an application might prevent you from being allowed entry to the UK or could result in your being without leave to remain here.

Even a minor error can influence a visa application. Getting caught up in red tape can deter an entrepreneur or overseas investor. Getting into the UK, remaining here or bringing in family members – all need lawyers who are absolutely clear of the hurdles and pitfalls and what is required to overcome them.

Why choose Morton Fraser's Immigration team?

We can offer a one-off advice consultation for a fixed fee.

What we will do for you:

  • Meet with you for up to 45 minutes in person, by Skype, or telephone
  • Summarise our advice in writing to you
  • If you need more advice or assistance from us after your appointment, we would be pleased to tailor a fixed fee package suitable to meet your needs.
