Immigration detention

The Home Office has the power to - in limited circumstances - detain UK immigration applicants. For example, if all an individual’s appeals have been exhausted and they are waiting until their deportation is processed.

There are strict rules around the detention process, however. Should the Home Office fail to abide by their own protocols, or you feel you haven’t been treated in a proper manner, you do have the right to fight their decision.

In particular, the following individuals are protected and should not be detained unless the circumstances surrounding the situation have been deemed exception:

  • Anyone under the age of 18
  • Pregnant women
  • People suffering from severe medical conditions or disabilities which cannot be properly managed in detention
  • Anyone suffering from serious mental health issues
  • Torture victims
  • Victims of trafficking
  • Other vulnerable individuals

If you fit into any of these categories and have been detained, contact our solicitors today to get the support you deserve.

If you don’t fall under these categories but still feel you have been mistreated or placed in detention incorrectly, we’re here to help you.

How do you get bail when in detention?

Everyone placed in detention for seven days or more is legally entitled to apply for bail, which grants temporary release while your case is ongoing. Although this removes a large portion of the stress which comes with being part of an active immigration case for you and your family, it is by no means guaranteed.

Once you have been in detention for the requisite period, you will be given the opportunity to apply for bail. During this process, you will be required to attend a hearing where you will have to convince an Immigration Judge you can be trusted to comply with the terms of any agreement and should be granted bail. Typically, your arguments will be opposed by a Home Office Presenting Officer who will be an expert in these matters. However, you are entitled to representation during this hearing. Having a professional in these matters support you will provide you with the best possible chance of being granted bail.

Our team works with you to ensure you have a fighting chance. We’ll get to know you and your case intimately before applying the expertise we have gained over the decades to make the strongest-possible arguments in your favour.

Should you successfully be granted bail, there will be conditions attached. These will be clearly laid out to you at the hearing and failure to comply will result in you being sent back to the detention centre.

Fighting deportation

Foreign nationals can be considered for deportation from the UK if they have committed a criminal offence or over-stayed their visa. Naturally, this decision can have monumental impacts on the life of both you and your family.

Being told you are being considered for deportation doesn’t mean it is guaranteed, however. Presenting a strong legal case can be the difference between deportation and being allowed to remain in the UK.

These cases are usually incredibly complex, meaning having the right solicitor by your side is vital to your success. Our team will work side-by-side with you to present the strongest case possible and provide you with the best possible chance of being able to remain in the UK.

We have helped people fight deportation cases for decades, meaning we have a complete understanding of the process involved and what needs to be done. Throughout the process, we will be completely transparent and communicate with you regularly to ensure you’re always fully aware of the progress of your case. We want to let you get back to living your normal live as soon as possible.
