I received a phone call late yesterday afternoon informing me that I had been awarded supplementary welfare. Thank you so much for your encouragement, I have been very low and disempowered in this whole story and couldn't have faced the SWO again without your support.
Many thanks for all the support and guidance over the past number of years. If I ever need a solicitor for any reason (but let’s hope not!) I’ll be back- but in any case I’m happy to recommend you to anyone who needs legal support and advice!
Just to let you know that I today received my foreign birth certificate from the Department of Foreign Affairs. I would like to thank you again for your excellent work on my behalf. You made the whole process simple, fast and efficient in a way that I could never have done on my own.
