  • “I requested their assistance with my British Citizenship application. The process took about 5 months from my initial contact to the application being submitted, during which a number of case workers assisted me with this. All were very professional and knowledgably in this field, providing me with good legal advice on how to proceed with my application.
    I recommend their service to those whose cases aren’t straightforward or who are nervous about applying on their own.”

Application checking FAQs

  • What types of Home Office applications do you check?

    We check Home Office immigration applications for individuals. This includes visitor visas, citizenship and naturalisation, student visas, spouse or partner, family visas and other applications that you need to make to the Home Office to lawfully enter and reside in the UK. This service does not include asylum applications or applications for a business. We check one application per purchase. If you have a family, you can choose to purchase a check per family member or have us check one and use that advice to guide you to perfect the rest of the applications yourself.

  • Will I receive advice on how to prepare my application before I submit it to you?

    This service is only suitable if you can prepare a draft application and identify the relevant supporting evidence yourself. If you can do this, then you will receive the most benefit from using this service. If you are experiencing difficulties identifying the right application, how to complete it, or you are not sure what evidence to include, then we recommend booking our online consultation first so we can advise you on how to start the process.

  • How do I send my documents?

    After booking the service, you will receive a confirmation email from Seraphus with instructions for sending your draft application and supporting documents. You will need to identify the correct visa application on the government website, complete the answers, use the ‘save for later’ function and download your draft PDF application. It is important you do not submit your application. When you are ready, you can send us your draft PDF application, supporting documents and any queries you have about your application by following the instructions in your confirmation email.

  • Can I receive further advice after receiving your report on my application?

    The application checking service is a limited service whereby Seraphus will review the documents you have uploaded and provide one written advice containing actionable feedback on how to improve the application. The written advice will also detail any problems you may have with your application, the chances of success, and how to address any resolvable issues. This service does not include answering further questions about your application and it is your responsibility to ensure you meet the requirements set out by the Home Office and that you follow our written advice. If you would like to discuss your application further, you can book a Video Consultation. If you need more guidance and support, we recommend you consider booking the Legal Representation service for full advice and support with your application.
