Muhammad handled my partners fiancée visa application then at deluxe law chambers also did her subsequent spouse visa application after our marriage. He was very informative and happy to help. Deluxe Law Chambers got us a positive result and I would recommend Muhammad for anyone wanting a lawyer for their immigration that is willing to contact you even outside of work hours to ensure you do not incur extra costs from application fee changes and ensures everything is covered to aid the application.
