We are specialist immigration solicitors within Croydon and Central London and have a strong reputation in assisting clients with Bail, Detention, Removal and Deportation cases. We offer competitive pricing and offer a bespoke immigration service to all our clients.
Bail is a legal procedure available to any person who has been detained by the UK Border Agency, under the Immigration Acts, in a removal centre or prison for seven days or more.
It is an application to a court for release, usually under certain conditions. When a detainee makes an application for bail they are brought to an immigration court (the Immigration and Asylum Chamber of the First-tier Tribunal) where an independent Immigration Judge makes a decision on whether detention should be maintained. If bail is granted there will normally be certain conditions attached, for example, the Immigration Judge may require the person to live at a specified address and report to a Home Office centre or a police station at regular intervals. Electronic monitoring may also be a requirement.
Alternatively, a person in immigration detention may be released on bail by the UK Border Agency (by a chief immigration officer). Immigration bail, if granted, will also likely be subject to some conditions.
Our London-based immigration solicitors can assist in applying for bail or release.
We can assist in securing release from detention and obtaining financial compensation, for current and historic cases, if we prove that any of the period of detention was unlawful.
If you consider that you have been detained for an unreasonable period of time or that you are being detained with no likelihood of you being removed from the UK you should contact us immediately. We represent clients on private, legal aid, No-Win Low Fee, No-Win No-Fee and pro bono basis.
If you have been detained by the Home Office in the last 6 years and you believe that you should not have been, please contact us so that we can consider whether you can sue the Home Office and secure compensation for your unlawful detention.
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.
Our team of specialist experienced immigration solicitors in Croydon can also assist those who have already had a deportation order made against them and want it revoked because of a change of personal circumstances, such as ill-health, delay in removing them from the UK or having new family members or relationships.
