Detention & Deportation Appeal Support

Our solicitors will prepare detailed grounds of appeal for your case. Throughout the case, we will be on hand to offer expert advice and guidance.

Why you may be detained or deported

Detention & Administration Removal

If you do not have leave to remain in the UK and there is no application or other proceedings pending, the Home Office may detain you for administrative removal to your previous country of residence.

You may have been detained on an immigration issue if you entered the UK illegally, or if you stayed in the UK longer than you were authorised to.


If you are a European or non-European national and have committed a criminal offence, the Secretary of State may decide to deport you and your family members. If this is the case and you wish to appeal the decision, you will need to make representation to the Home Office and if they refuse, appeal to the Immigration Tribunal.

It is a breach of human rights to deport first appeal later. Having to appeal from abroad can reduce the effectiveness of an appeal, so the Supreme Court has ruled deporting non-British criminals before they have had a chance to appeal breaches their human rights.

If you have been detained, you will usually be entitled to apply for Temporary Admission or Bail, through the Chief Immigration Officer. There are factors which will affect the success of your application to remain in the country.

Your solicitor will advise you on these factors, your chances of success and how to complete the application.

Deportation Appeals

Our solicitors will prepare a detailed deportation appeal for your particular case, preparing for every aspect and detail. Throughout the case, we will be on hand to offer expert advice and guidance. These cases are often very complex matters, which is why it is important to have expert legal representation and safeguarding as a Foreign National Prisoner.

Bail Applications

If you’ve been detained and held in a removal centre or prison for over a week by the UK Border Agency, you could be entitled to apply for bail.

Once you apply for bail, you will face an immigration judge in front of an immigration court. Whether your bail application is successful will be decided by the judge.

If you are successful, the judge may present you with bail conditions you will need to adhere to during your time in the UK.

Asylum & Refugee Cases

If you need to claim asylum, our expert solicitors can offer you guidance and representation for your case.

Whether this is a Human Rights-based applications, claiming asylum, discretionary leave to remain, dealing with unsuccessful applications or family reunion programmes once your refugee status has been granted.

To apply for asylum, you must have left your country of origin and be unable to return because you fear persecution.

Judicial Reviews

We will assist you with the judicial review process if necessary.

If you feel the UKVI or another governing body have acted wrongly or unlawfully when making a decision, we can offer guidance, legal advice and support through these often stressful and complicated times. We will aim to have this decision reviewed by a judge and support you in having the decision overturned.
