Family Reunion

The term ‘Family Reunion’ refers to an applicant who has been successful in an asylum claim and now has the right to make an application for their family members to join them in the UK.

Family Reunions can be further complicated by the closure of embassies abroad, difficulties in locating family members and difficulties in proving the identity of family members.

We can assist with reuniting families with the applicant from completing the application, collating documents, liaising with officers abroad and drafting detailed legal representations on your behalf.


If your family reunion application is refused then we can also assist with appealing the decision. The appeal hearing will take place in the UK even though your family member is abroad, and you will need to attend the hearing as you are their UK sponsor. We can lodge the appeal on your behalf, prepare the case for court and attend the hearing or instruct a barrister to attend and advocate on your behalf.
