Hi,

 

Did you instruct a solicitor to act on your behalf in preparing the application?

 

Were you given leave to appeal? Did it say when you had to give your notice of appeal by?

yes we were given 28 days to appeal and i gave 500 pounds to uk visa and immigration based here in uk.I have struggled to get feedback from them and they say they have lodged appeal and want a further 700 uk pounds.

Ok.

 

Have you instructed a solicitor to act on appeal?

only these people at uk visa a person called yaser

Right.

 

I assume that person you have mentioned it not a solicitor. You should instruct an immigration solicitor to act for you in your appeal. They in turn will instruct a barrister to act on appeal.

 

There will be a hearing and you will have to put forward your argument and evidence as best you can, a solicitor will be able to do this for you and will know what kind of evidence gets the best traction on the issue of money.


For example, they should submit evidence of jobs advertisements in your area that you husband could do and earn an income from. They should argue that this income should be included in their consideration of the ability to support yourself.

 

Similarly, if you have spent money on flying to Egypt during the time you have been apart then you can argue that this would free up more available money so that you can support yourself without recourse to public funds.

 

All of the above should be appropriately documentary evidenced.

 

Evidence gets a fairer hearing on appeal in any event,rather than just before an immigration official of the UKBA so provided you can show that you will have enough money to support yourselves (once you are both working) then you will stand a reasonable chance of receiving an approval.

 

To give yourself the best chance though you really should instruct a solicitor.

Kind regards,
