Expertise

Archibong is an experienced immigration and family law practitioner that advises clients through the system.

The UK immigration system is very complex and that is why it requires a lawyer who is very experienced to handle issues professionally and competently to the satisfaction of his clients.

He has handled a wide range of immigration-related applications such as student, work and visitor visas for settlement or British citizenship.

Archibong can help with:

  • British Nationality
  • Skilled Worker Visas to work in the UK
  • Indefinite leave to remain applications (ILR)
  • Sponsor licences for organisations that want to employ people from abroad
  • Visa applications for entrepreneurs and investors
  • Family and partner visas to come to the UK for example Spouse visas, fiancée visas etc
  • Student visas to be able to study in the UK

Experience Highlights

Archibong has advised numerous clients for both Exceptional Talent across many sectors including Technology, Engineering, Culture, Science and Arts etc.  Some of the Advisory bodies are:

  • Digital Technology – Tech Nation
  • Engineering – The Royal Academy of Engineering
  • Humanities – The British Academy
  • Science and Medicine – The Royal Society

He has advised clients who had been refused a visa application by the Entry Clearance Officer (ECO) on a very irrational ground.

A letter of Pre-Action protocol for judicial review was lodged with the Home Office setting out the grounds for challenging the decision for refusal and that afforded the Home Office the chance to reconsider their decision.

Archibong has equally represented clients in a number of cases in divorce proceedings until a Decree Absolute was obtained.
