As a direct access immigration barrister working closely on this issue I have been fortunate this week to have received two decisions from the First Tier Tribunal both of which have allowed the Appellant’s appeals. There was nothing special in the cases, the Appellants turned up, spoke and were able I hope with my help to show that they were innocent and not responsible for the mistakes of others many years ago.
These appeals were properly prepared with helpful clients and justice won through. I was delighted for both of them and their young families who can now settle down to life in the UK happy in the knowledge that they will soon as likely as not as British Citizens having had a year of Indefinite Leave to Remain.
I thought I would post this as a happy end to a very busy day and to hopefully show that these are not hopeless cases and that with proper preparation winning is possible, In at least one case the Home Office had nothing to say.
I have also had a Judge adjourn a case so that the Appellant’s could produce further evidence, further highlighting the gulf between appeals and JR,
Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in any part of the 322 5 process as while these appeals were won they could easily have been lost had the correct evidence not been submitted.
