Firstly i would say that i doubt an immigration lawyer would speed up the process as mailing things to them for them to mail in fact would take longer. So firts i would say ask yourself if you really need a lawyer. I would suggest you look over the guides and see the process and how semi straight forward it is. If you still decide a lawyer is what you need then i believe there is a phone number to find a lawyer in your area but i don`t know where that number is. On this site somewhere i think.

good luck

If your not already married since your talking about a wedding this year in May. You can just apply for a Fiance visa thats the fastest way to prevent separation any longer then needed.

Yeah we thought about that option, but decided on getting married in the UK instead. He's already got his marriage visa, and we gave notice of marriage in January. Everything is booked for the wedding in May, and friends and family have booked their flights, so we are going ahead with it over here now.

I would apply for everything myself following the guides etc, but Jason would prefer to get a lawyer to sort things out for us.....we both seem to be very unlucky in everything we do, so we are going to leave it to the "professionals" lol
