My name isXXXXX and I am a Solicitor based in London. I'm happy to help with your question today.
Breach of US immigration rules is not an automatic bar to entry to the UK if all the other legal requirements are met. So long as all the requirements under UK immigration laws are met then your partner has a chance of success. Without a detailed analysis of your circumstances its impossible to comment on exactly how high the chances are but there is no reason not to make an application.
Could you give me a bit more information on what details you require to provide a broad assessment of the chance of success?
Does this circumstance require us to get a solicitor when we are making the application or would we have a chance of success if we make a straight forward application?
In terms of circumstances,
Essentially as it stands I have two options:
We are keen to avoid him going back to Nigeria and getting stuck there while we go through multiple appeals
Are you aware of any legal precedents where a person in similar circumstances has made a successful appeal?
As I mentioned, let me know what additional information you require to provide a more informed assessment. Thanks
