Please see this question for full history, but in short: my mother-in law who is a US citizen overstayed her visit to the UK and was asked to leave. She left voluntarily and is now back in the US.
She is applying for the correct visa now, but her old solicitor got in touch to say she might have one year ban. We have checked the paper work she was issued when she left and it does not mention a ban.
Would she have a one year ban automatically, and how can we find out? Is the solicitor just trying to get her to start using him again?
