Human rights

A human rights claim can form the sole basis of just part of an application to enter or remain in the UK. The law around the protection of human rights is complex. UK Visas and Immigration takes the position that the Immigration Rules reflect the extent of the UK’s obligations under human rights law while the Courts have ruled that in some circumstances human rights should be considered beyond the scope of the provision in the Rules.

We will help you to identify whether you have a potential claim and assist you with an application based on your right to a family and/or private life in the UK.

Appeals, administrative review and judicial review

Appeals can be brought against adverse decisions on human rights claims. In cases where there is no right of appeal there is normally an alternative recourse referred to as ‘administrative review’. Where decisions do not attract a right of appeal or administrative review, you may potentially challenge the decision by way of judicial review provided that the challenge is on the grounds of illegality, irrationality or unfairness.

We have expertise in all of these types of challenges and will advise you on your prospects of success through to preparing and representing you in your appeal or application for review.
