Unfortunately, applications are often rejected by the Home Office. This may be due to insufficient supporting evidence alongside the application, or a simple case of incorrect information being provided on the application form.

Either way, once the Home Office have rejected the application, you need to act fast to ensure the best chances of success with any subsequent appeals. Your refusal letter will state whether you are eligible to make an appeal, as well as advising how long you have to do it.

Our Appeal Package utilises our lawyer’s vast legal knowledge and comprehensive experience to ensure you have the greatest chance of success for a successful appeal. We will also fully represent you in any hearings/tribunals.

FAQs

What is the appeal process?

Our Appeal Package provides a comprehensive service in which we would undertake and manage the entire process for you.

Our Appeal Package includes:

  • Taking detailed instructions from you and assessing your circumstances;
  • Discussing the requirements of the UK Immigration Rules relevant to your case;
  • Providing you with detailed advice on the virtues of appealing against the refusal;
  • Professionally completing and sending all the required appeal forms;
  • Producing a detailed and comprehensive document bundle for the court containing the details & merits of your appeal and why it should be accepted;
  • Providing you with an expert lawyer to represent you at the full hearing before the tribunal, and managing communication with the appellate authorities until a decision is received

How soon will you begin working on my appeal?

Due to the time sensitive nature of appeals, once we have arranged an appointment to discuss your application and subsequent appeal, we will begin working on your appeal straight away.

It is essential that any documentation that is requested by your lawyer is provided to them as soon as possible. This is to allow enough time for the bundle (hearing documents) to be prepared.

Will I have to attend court during an appeal?

It is very likely that you will need to attend a court hearing and tribunal. This is not something to be afraid of – it is your chance to explain your case (which we will do on your behalf) and argue why your application should be accepted.

As explained above, our lawyers will fully represent you during any court hearings and will use their extensive legal knowledge to ensure we provide you with the best chances of success.

If you have any concerns, please speak to a member of our enquiries team who can assist.

Can I submit an appeal myself?

As with applications, you can certainly choose to undertake an appeal yourself.

The difference with appeals is that you will need to provide a strong case to the court to effectively convince them to allow your application to be granted. In these cases, we strongly recommend the use of a professional firm to ensure you have the greatest chance of successfully appealing.

I don’t have the right to appeal, is there anything I can do?

If you haven’t been given the chance to appeal, do not worry – there may still be options available to you.

Our lawyers can look at your case in detail and advise whether there is anything else you can do. This may include an Administrative Review, a fresh application or other unconventional methods.

Contact us immediately if you have any concerns or would like advice on how to proceed.
