Immigration appeal law

What is an Immigration Appeal?

It is a process through which any decision made by the Home Office will be reviewed by an independent immigration judge.

  • The appeal is made to determine if the decision made by the Home Office is lawful, accurate and fair at the time it was made
  • The immigration judge also will determine if the applicant meets the rules of the UK immigration policy in the light of the previously presented and the latest evidence provided to the court by the person who has filed the appeal
  • In case the judge finds that the decision from the Home Office is or was not lawful then the appeal will be allowed.
  • It means that the person will be allowed to enter the UK if the appeal is made against the refusal of entry clearance. If the person is already present in the country leave to remain in the UK will be granted.

Preparing for Immigration Appeal

  • It is important that all the points raised by the Home Office in your refusal letter are addressed in the grounds of appeal
  • This is a cumbersome task indeed and cannot be handled on your own unless you seek guidance from an expert, professionally sound immigration solicitors
    Fadiga & Co’s specialist immigration solicitors in London will inform you in advance about the required evidence that you need to provide to the Immigration Judge
  • Another important aspect is to make sure that you are represented at your hearing by an experienced immigration solicitor/ advocate who is capable of putting forth your case in a thoroughly convincing manner
  • Remember that majority of immigration appeals are lost due to the inefficiency or incompetence of the advocate.
  • You can opt for oral hearing of your appeal too and at such a hearing you are allowed to call live witnesses to support your case
  • A witness may be your relative such as a wife or a partner, family friend, acquaintance or colleague
  • It is important that you discuss the need to opt for an oral heating with your immigration solicitors because if the witness is not prepared for appearing in court, the case might turn against you
  • A detailed statement that is to be presented before the court on the day of the hearing needs to be prepared by your witness so that there are no confusions or ambiguities left in the mind of the judge
  • Taking the lawyer into confidence is very important about your witness’s statement so that he/she will know what is going to be presented before the court on the day of hearing
  • Be very careful in such matters and only trust a reliable team of immigration appeal solicitors in London
