Why a cover letter may be critical for an application
While some applicants are persuaded that a cover letter is crucial for any application submitted to Home Office, others deny its importance. Some applicants believe that a cover letter can save an applicatiuon that is weak or does not met the criteria. As in many cases, the truth lies somewhere between those two extremes. Cover letter is highly unlikely to rescue a weak application. But it can help in borderline cases. Where evidence is not clear or the case does not appear straithforward from the documents presented to the Home Office.
Lawyers often use cover letters in their submissions to the Home Office. However often they are not neccessary and may even harm your application if written incorrectly. Whether you do your application by yourself or with the help of a lawyer, make sure the cover letter will help your case.
The first thing to know is that the cover letter cannot replace evidence required by the Home Office. It is only a source of additional information or clarification for the Home Office.
