The leaflets in this series give you an outline of your legal rights. They are not a complete guide to the law and are not intended to be a guide to how the law will apply to you or to any specific situation. The leaflets are regularly updated but the law may have changed since this was printed, so information in it may be incorrect or out of date.

If you have a problem, you will need to get more information or personal advice to work out the best way to solve it. See 'Further help' for sources of information and advice.

This leaflet is one of a series produced by the Gurkha Free Legal Advice (LSC). The leaflets are available in a printed format in English and Welsh, and also in Braille and Audio versions. You can print the English and Welsh versions yourself using the PDF (Adobe Acrobat) version.
