If you have been refused leave to remain under the Immigration Rules, your Asylum claim has been dismissed or you have been issued with a Deportation order and your Human Rights claim has been refused, our experienced Immigration lawyers can help you challenge the Home Office decision by appealing to the First Tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chambers).
The appeal system enables decisions by the Home Office to be reviewed by an independent judicial body. However, not every decision can be appealed. The changes made by the Immigration Act 2014 to the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002, mean that only the following decisions can be appealed:
- You have been refused Asylum or Humanitarian Protection in the UK;
- You have been refused leave to remain in the UK or entry clearance and your claim was based on Human Rights, such as your right to Private or Family life with a family member in the UK;
- You have been refused a family permit, a residence permit or permanent residence in the UK as the family member of a EU national;
- You have had your Refugee Status or Humanitarian Protection status revoked.
Our experienced Immigration and Human Rights solicitors can advise you on the merits of your appeal and assist you throughout the whole process. Appealing a decision and attending court to argue your case can be a complex and difficult matter.
Danielle Cohen Immigration Solicitors has extensive experience in successfully litigating cases all the way to the Court of Appeal, and our Immigration Lawyers will draft and submit the grounds of appeal on your behalf, liaise with Counsel, organise a conference for you to meet your barrister, communicate with various experts and witnesses, gather the evidence necessary to win your appeal, prepare your appeal bundle and support you on your day in Court.
First Tier Tribunal Immigration Decisions
The decision of the First Tier Tribunal is an appealable decision and either party can choose to appeal to the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) to have the decision of the First tier Tribunal reviewed, if they think that the decision contains an error of law.
The right to appeal to the Upper Tribunal is not an automatic right and the party that wishes to appeal must first seek – and be granted – permission to appeal from the First Tier Tribunal First and the Upper Tribunal if refused.
“I received a letter from the home office advising me that the First-tier Tribunal has accepted my appeal, which is great news.”
“We have to say a big “Thank you” to you both for your role and guidance in obtaining our visa. We are most grateful.”
“I’m indebted to your firm forever because what you’ve done in 45 days -unbelievable as it sounds- I didn’t think it possible after so many past set back!”
