Detention, Bail And Deportation Legal Services

Detention and Bail

If you find yourself in the circumstance where you have been detained on an immigration issue, this is likely to be because you have either entered the UK illegally or have stayed in the UK beyond your period of leave authorised by an immigration official and that you have failed to regularise your stay in the UK.

In the vast majority of circumstances, you will be entitled to make an application to the Chief Immigration Officer for Temporary Admission – this may also be referred to as Chief Immigration Officer (CIO) Bail. The success of this application will depend on various factors dependent on your circumstances, however, if you’re in a situation where you feel you cannot return home as you fear for your safety, you could be able to claim asylum.

Bail is a legal process that is available to anyone who has been detained in the UK Border Agency that has been in a removal centre or prison for 7 days or more. When you make an application for bail, you will be brought to an immigration court where an Immigration Judge will make a decision on whether you should be granted bail – the case may be presented by a legal representative and is typically opposed by a Home Office Presenting Officer. If your bail application has been successful, it is not unusual for conditions to be attached. On release, the Immigration Judge will require certain conditions that are to be observed upon release. If you’re in an immigration detention, you may be released on bail by the UK Border Agency, which will also be subject to conditions.

To give your application the highest possible chance of success, you will need two sureties who be able to ensure that upon your release, you will comply with any conditions that are attached to your bail. 

Please contact our office to obtain legal advice regarding your chances of success for bail.
