Defending Home Office Deportation Orders & Removal Orders
Deportation and Removal from the UK are two methods the UK Border Agency may use to force a person to leave the UK. Most of the clients that we represent in UKBA deportation or removal proceedings are in UKBA Immigration Removal Centres for one of three reasons: (1) a criminal conviction or arrest, (2) overstaying in the UK or (3) refusal of an immigration application that they submitted without the assistance of a competent solicitor.
Deportation is regulated by certain sections of the Immigration Act 1971 and administrative removal is regulated by the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999. Deportation orders can be challenged if it is contrary to the United Kingdom’s obligations under the Refugee Convention or Human Rights / ECHR. Regard may also be had to other relevant factors which constitute exceptional circumstances. Administrative Removal can be prevented if it would be contrary to the United Kingdom’s obligations under the Convention and Protocol relating to the Status of Refugees or under the Human Rights Convention.
We can help if you or someone you know is subject to Deportation or Removal. It is imperative that you seek urgent legal advice from a UK immigration lawyer. Our team of experienced and professionally qualified immigration solicitors and immigration barristers will be able to able to advise you on all of the forms of relief and representations you have available. We can assist you in appealing against a deportation or removal order and consider the ways that you may stay in the UK or avoid a ban on you re-entering the country.

IMMIGRATION DEADLINES – WARNING
UKVI (part of the UK Home Office) set very strict deadlines which must be complied with otherwise your UK immigration rights will become severely limited. You should submit an application as soon as possible e.g. 28 days before the expiry of a UK Visa and should seek specific legal advice about your Visa or right to remain or appeal at the earliest opportunity so that you understand the time you have left. Delay in making an application or taking advice can be fatal. If you have a refusal letter from the Home Office carefully note the short deadlines stated therein (it may be 14 days). Such deadlines run from the date of the letter so you may have less than 10 days to take action. Late appeals can lead to you being forced to make an out of country UK Visa application and can affect the prospects of success.
