The process

The first step is to make an application in writing to challenge the decision of the lower court, (known as the first tier tribunal).

This is done by reading through the determination issued by the immigration judge and looking for material errors of law or any mistakes in the procedure that the judge has followed. Once the challenges to the decision have been expertly drafted by our immigration lawyers, this is sent to the court.

If the grounds are successful, then any further hearing takes place before the Upper Tier of the Tribunal in order to establish whether there was enough in reality an error of law. This is usually a very technical argument based upon previous legal decisions and they take a lot of skill.

If this is successful, then the higher courts can either reverse the decision (ie put aside the lower judge’s decision and allow the case.) They can also refuse the case, in which case the judge’s decision stands.

The third option is to have a retrial or rehearing and the appeals process starts again.

Our leading experienced immigration lawyers are on hand to draft these grounds. These forms of appeal require a high degree of skill and require the highest level of OISC regulation. We have hold this highest level of OISC regulation.

If you have been to court and have been unhappy with your representation over at their representation at all and wish to challenge a refusal granted by immigration judge and please contact our lawyers as soon as possible as the deadlines for these applications tend to be very strict.

We aim to constantly provide clear, efficient and bespoke advice tailored to the needs of yourself and your case. Westkin Associates are one of London’s leading law firms that specialises in immigration law giving you the best possible chance of a successful appeal.
