Human Rights / Deportation visa

Over-stayers and Human Rights Applications

We provide a specialist service for people who wish to remain in the United Kingdom on human rights and or compassionate grounds. If you have children, family, an unmarried partner, we can make representations to the United Kingdom Border Agency for you to be considered to remain in the United Kingdom on human rights grounds.

The European Convention on Human Rights is an international treaty to protect human rights and fundamental freedoms in Europe. The Convention on Human Rights prevents the UK sending someone to a country where there is a genuine risk that they will be exposed to torture, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

The following basic Human Rights and freedoms are included:

• The right to liberty and security
• The right to no punishment without law
• The right to fair trial
• The right to respect private and family life
• The right to marry
• The right to a remedy of human rights abuses
• Freedom of thought, conscience and religion
• Freedom of expression
• Prohibition of discrimination
• Freedom of assembly and association
• Prohibition of torture
• Prohibition of slavery and forced labour
• Prohibition of the abuse of rights

If you feel your case falls under any of the above Human Rights we can help complete your application for Discretionary Leave to Remain!

Deportations/Bail Applications

We offer a comprehensive service for individuals who are subject to removal directions and for those who have been detained by the United Kingdom Border Agency.

Bail is when someone is detained by the UK Border Agency and is released, on certain conditions. All detainees have the right to apply for bail if they have been in the UK for at least 7 days.

If you are in custody over a visa matter, our UK Visa and Immigration Experts can help get you released from detention. Your bail application will be heard by a specialist immigration judge at an Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT).

Deportation cases are where the laws of crime and immigration meet. Deportation is where foreign nationals, having been convicted of a crime are selected by the Home Office to be returned to their country of origin. This is a fast moving area which requires considerable expertise and care on the part of legal representatives. Our team includes immigration lawyers with criminal law experience which makes them suited to tackling these cases.
