We use an appointment system. We cannot see people who come to our office without an appointment.
Our project is assisted by law student volunteers from Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham. At the first appointment you will met with a volunteer who will provide information about family re-union – who is eligible to apply, what rules you need to meet, the evidence you need to provide and the process. Our volunteers cannot give legal advice.
If we can take you on as a client we will give you contact details for the caseworker who will be your main contact for advice and questions on your family reunion matter. We will send you documentation to sign and will support you to prepare your family reunion application.
If we cannot take you on as a client we will explain what other options might be available to you.
Fees and expenses
NNRF will never ask you for money or payment.
Please note that there will be expenses relating to your family reunion application that you will have to pay. Examples are passport application fees, fees for TB tests, translation fees etc. We will explain this in more detail to you if we take on your case.
Information that you give us will be treated in strictest confidence. Anything disclosed to us will not be passed onto anyone outside the Project without your explicit consent, unless there are circumstances where we believe there may be a risk to yourself or other people, in which case we may be obliged to speak to relevant authorities.
Independence and Impartiality – two of our Fundamental Principles
NNRF makes no discrimination as to nationality, race, religious beliefs, sexuality, class or political opinions. It works autonomously and is independent from other agencies and governments.
