We are experts at seeking emergency injunctions against removal.
The UKBA often refuse passenger’s entry to the UK, or the UK Border Agency issue removal directions with very little notice. In certain cases the failure to grant entry or the intended removal from the UK will be unlawful. We can assist by making written submissions that if not accepted by the UK Border Agency can be challenged by way of Judicial Review, which is an action in the High Court to obtain an injunction. We can also assist in cases where you have been issued a refusal decision by the UK Border Agency or the courts and need urgent advice and assistance in a very short time frame to comply with a deadline.
Please note that we are only able to provide Legal Aid to foreign prisoners who are detained at a prison in London or the South East of England and we cannot currently provide public funding to any detainee at one of the immigration removal centres.
We can, however, if we agree that a detainee at a removal centre has been detained for a prolonged period of time with no imminent prospect of removal, assist in a claim for unlawful detention and release with what is known as certificated work, subject to eligibility conditions being met.
