We are still open for business and can provide advice remotely, by telephone, e mail and skype.

Please keep an eye on our regular news updates for information on how the situation is disrupting usual immigration applications and the important things to be aware of.

The main thing to avoid is overstaying your current permission to be in the UK as doing so could harm future immigration applications.

I cannot recommend Jenny highly enough. She helped my brother in law to successfully obtain the Pre-Settle Status as the spouse of an EU Citizen. It was a very complicated case as he previously submitted a wrong application. She is very capable, reliable and professional. We admire the fact she was there for us from the first call till the decision for any questions we had. If you are looking for professionalism, this is the right place to go.

Jenny helped us to successfully apply for spouse/leave to remain visas for my wife and step daughter. To say we had what I would consider a highly complicated case to navigate is an understatement. Jenny was recommended to us by a friend after another lawyer suggested our case was unlikely to be successful. Jenny works by the book and with integrity, is straight up and honest with her opinions so you always know exactly where you stand throughout the whole process. She kept us updated at every step of the way. We honestly cannot thank Jenny enough for her help, and since the road to settlement is a long one we will 100% be requesting her services throughout the whole process. If there is any chance that your case can be won I am confident you can rely on Jenny to see it through. Thank you so much!

What a (5) star! I was given Jenny's name by a friend of a friend and could not have found better help to see me through the application for settled status in the UK. It was dealt with in a professional and friendly manner and only took a couple of weeks. Well worth the fee!!!

I came to Jenny because she had been brilliant in organising my daughter's British Citizenship. Now I have pre-settled status and can stay here in the UK with my daughter and her husband. I am extremely happy. The process could not have run so smoothly and quickly without Jenny. It's a very big thank you from me and a big recommendation to anyone looking for similar help and advice.

Now that everything is finalised and I become a British subject, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for all the care and concern you have shown me, and for working tirelessly to ensure the speedy end of my naturalization process.I would like to congratulate you, Jenny, for your exceptional professionalism. My phone calls and e-mails were always answered promptly, and you have always been helpful and friendly, which was very important to me. It’s been a pleasure to work alongside you.

Highest marks. My wife and I recently sought advice from Jenny Harvey about a dual residence situation, and she not only answered our questions but, on her own initiative, supplied additional information and perspective that was very helpful to us. We're extremely grateful for her assistance, and, if we have any future issues, will hasten to seek her services again.

I have consulted Jenny Harvey on three separate occasions, the last one for naturalisation as British citizen during Covid-19.With each consultation, she was knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly, incredibly supportive during the extremely stressful application process.Jenny was very prompt in her correspondence and would always address my concerns head on which was reassuring. She truly went above and beyond and I cannot recommend her enough.

Jenny Harvey is an outstanding adviser. Her expertise and experience in immigration law are considerable and, just as important, her manner is positive and supportive. She listened to my concerns and responded to my questions quickly and efficiently. Despite the uncertainties created by the COVID-19 pandemic, Jenny successfully guided me through the complexities in applying for naturalisation as a British citizen. She was a pleasure to work with, and I am grateful to have found her. I recommend her wholeheartedly.

Even if you’re confident that you should be approved when applying for citizenship, it’s stressful handling the process yourself. It can be complicated and confusing. It’s much less stressful to lean on the experience of someone who specialises in helping people through the process. I reached out to Jenny for help. From first contact she was timely, professional, understanding, reassuring and helpful. Definitely happy that I engaged her services. Just received my letter today - success! Thank you Jenny!

Jenny supported my application for British Citizenship in summer 2020. It is clear that Jenny has a high level of experience in immigration laws and processes. Her instructions and answers are always clear and straight forward and I was particularly impressed with the her ability to respond to messages promptly. Answers usually come back within the day. We worked together during the COVID-19 pandemic, which meant that processes and practices had to be adapted. This was never an issue and overall the application process was fast and straight forward. I can recommend Jenny wholeheartedly.

My citizenship application was a massive source of anxiety for a very long time. I've lost most of my documents when I applied for hi-security job, and recovering them was either tricky or simply impossible. Convoluted and contradictory application rules dragged me to tears and I've just abandoned the idea that I'll ever try to apply again. Until I've met Jenny! She not only was patient enough to explain everything time and time again,but went above and beyond to accomodate to my mad schedule. Her knowledge and experience, got me from residency card application (apparently there's wrong blue card you can apply for) to now awaiting my citizenship ceremony, in less than a year! She knew how to recompensate for the lost documents that would take me months of running around.I can't thank you enough Jenny, you have saved my sanity and helped me to put this massive milestone behind me! Thank you

We originally contacted JHI after two visa refusals, Jenny expertly guided us through a fiancée visa application in March this year, despite numerous obstacles due to the covid-19 pandemic we have been successful in being granted a visa. Throughout the whole process Jenny was diligent, supportive, professional and went the extra mile on many occasions. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I warmly endorse all the high praise in earlier reviews: Jenny's knowledge, efficiency, kindness, and willingness to go the extra mile results in lowered stress and as streamlined a process as possible. I'm very grateful to her for the happy result: after 40 years based in the UK, this Commonwealth citizen will be able to continue living with her English husband, and I would recommend anyone with immigration worries to go to Jenny.

Jenny helped me successfully file for Pre-Settled Status as the spouse of an EEA/EU Citizen (Surinder Singh). She was wonderful to work with, and more than helpful from start to finish. I always felt that my case was high priority, and it was resolved much earlier than I expected, thanks to Jenny's persistence. Not only did she help us through the application, she offered invaluable advice about which subsequent applications we would need to make and when. Jenny is knowledgeable, professional, and empathetic. I plan on using her services again for future applications and would highly recommend her to anyone.

My then fiancé and I came to Jenny for her legal representation for my spousal visa application months before our wedding. Jenny had arranged one on one customized meetings with us to prepare us for all required documents ahead of time to ensure that we got everything ready for our application submission. We were given all the wise recommendations by her without which we couldn’t have got such immediate positive result from the Home Office just hours after our appointment. Jenny is definitely is the go-to legal authority figure for immigration services that guarantee desired results.

My wife Betsy has passed successfully through two application processes - leave to remain, and indefinite leave to remain (ILR) - with Jenny Harvey's help. Both Betsy and I are grateful to Ms Harvey for her professionalism, kindness, and expertise. These qualities are based on a lot of experience, flinty patience, and a capacity for prompt responses to problems. A speedy reaction was especially necessary with the ILR application, as it was held up very suddenly by an unexpected request for extra documentation - that I, born and permanently domiciled in the UK, should provide more evidence to show I had been living continuously in the only house that I own. Ms Harvey not only kept communication open with the Visa & Immigration officer during the 24 hours in which we collated the extra documents - without her doing this there might have been a long and nerve-racking delay to the process - but she also checked, scanned and sent the documents when she was far from fully fit. All this was above and beyond the call of duty, and we are glad to recommend her.

My husband and I can't thank Jenny enough for all of the help and knowledge she has provided us in my endeavor to move to the UK. Jenny really knows what she is doing and she is extremely professional. Without Jenny we would not have been able to fathom the amount of paperwork that was necessary for my move. She walked us through the whole process, looked over our information to ensure correctness, and was always available for any questions or concerns that we had. I would definitely recommend Jenny to anyone that could need assistance with immigration. She will not steer you wrong.
