Stone King’s Immigration Team offering free legal advice to Ukraine refugee project

The Stone King team is offering free advice via the Ukraine Advice Project UK.

The Ukraine Advice Project UK was set up by a group of immigration lawyers to provide pro bono advice to Ukraine nationals following the Russian invasion.

The project has been inundated with enquiries since it opened, with the Stone King team joining lawyers around the country in offering expert legal advice.

“Whilst the immigration rules have been slightly relaxed for family members of Ukraine nationals, there is a backlog of applications and a sense that the visa system is not currently fit for purpose,” said Head of Immigration Julie Moktadir, who leads the team from the firm's Cambridge office.

“There are a large number of people fleeing who do not have identity documents or the resources to seek safety or assistance which makes it all the more complicated.

“We are seeking to help both Ukrainian nationals and other nationalities fleeing Ukraine.”

The project is made up of legal professionals with immigration and asylum expertise.

To request advice, please email: ukraine@freemovement.org.uk with some details of your circumstances and what advice you need.
