“My wife was settled in the UK with my son. We had plans for me to join her but I did not know my way through the many rules on UK visas. I made a casual search on the internet and I happened to see Acheampong & Associates. I searched through their website, read a couple of testimonials from previous clients and immigration articles on their blog.
I was certain in my mind that they were the right office to handle my application. I discussed with my wife who was then in Ghana and we decided to settle on them. The team listened to my case and they advised me on appropriate documentation for me. They explained in their covering letter the genuineness of my marriage with my wife and other matters because of how complicated things were at that time.
My visa was finally granted and here I am in the UK with my lovely wife and child. I will not bat an eyelid in recommending them to anyone.”CHARLES (UK RESIDENT)
“Even with a fully paid scholarship, I was refused a UK Visa to allow me undertake a PhD. I was further banned from entry into the UK for ten years because I did not include data on all my children, which the UKVI claimed was a use of falsehood on my part.
Being a fairly intelligent person, had I made the mistake of making an appeal by myself, I most possibly would have lost the case; because it was not about the good reasons and intelligent explanations that one could give as an excuse. I was alarmed and quite critical of the simple and technical but sharp legal principles deployed by Acheampong & Associates against the UKVI, over the visa refusal.
My doubts proved fruitless, because it certainly was an issue of applying legal principles by experienced immigration lawyers to win the case, at administrative review level. All my family and friends with immigration and other legal issues have started to follow up to Acheampong & Associates now. Don’t gamble with your case.”GERALD (UK)
