Pre Action Protocol (PAP) Against Home Office UKVI

You should submit a Pre Action Protocol (PAP) letter to the Home Office UKVI before you issue the Judicial Review (JR) proceedings against the Home Office UKVI to challenge the refusal of a UK visa and immigration application. A pre-action protocol (PAP) letter is a letter written to the Home Office, UKVI in order to try and resolve a dispute concerning an immigration matter before Judicial Review (JR) proceedings are started against the Home Office UKVI. A Pre-Action Protocol (PAP) letter may also be called a ’letter before claim’ or a ’letter before action’.  All of these terms refer to the same thing.

By sending a Pre Action Protocol (PAP) letter to the Home Office UKVI, you put the Secretary of State for the Home Department (SSHD) on notice that you intend to file a Judicial Review against the Home Office UKVI decision to refuse the UK visa and immigration application and you give detailed grounds and reasons which render the decision of the Home Office UKVI unlawful. You give the Secretary of State 14 days notice to reconsider the refusal decision failing which you will issue the Judicial Review proceedings in the court.

You should send a pre-action protocol (PAP) letter to Home Office UKVI before filing an immigration Judicial Review (JR) in Court and ask the Home Office UKVI to reconsider its refusal decision within 14 days. Read More

Judicial Review (JR) Against Home Office UKVI

You can challenge the refusal of UK visa by way of Judicial Review (JR) against the Home Office UKVI if you do not have right to file an appeal against the UK visa refusal. Judicial Review (JR) in immigration cases is a legal process whereby an unlawful refusal of UK visa and immigration application by the Home Office UKVI can be legally challenged by way of legal proceedings in the court. Through Judicial Review (JR), the court reviews the unlawfulness of an immigration decision and if the decision is found to be unlawful, the decision is set aside by the court so that the Home Office UKVI can make a fresh lawful immigration decision of your UK visa and immigration application.

Our specialist team of immigration solicitors and lawyers can provide expert immigration advice and legal representations in relation to your Judicial Review (JR) against the Home Office, UKVI. Our immigration solicitors can represent you in your Judicial Review (JR) against the Home Office UKVI on no win no fee basis. Read More

Immigration Appeals UK

You can challenge the refusal of your UK visa and immigration application by way of an immigration appeal to the First Tier Tribunal (FTT) if you believe that your UK visa and immigration application has been unlawfully refused by the Home Office UKVI. An appeal against the refusal of UK visa and immigration application must be filed within 14 days if the UK visa and immigration application was made from inside the UK and within 28 days if the UK visa and immigration application was made from outside the UK.

If your immigration appeal to the First Tier Tribunal (FTT) is dismissed by the Immigration Judge, you can challenge the appeal determination of the Immigration Judge by filing an appeal to the Upper Tribunal (UT), subject to grant of permission, on the basis that the Immigration Judge determining the immigration appeal at First Tier Tribunal made a material error of law in the appeal determination.

Similarly, a decision of the Upper Tribunal (UT) to dismiss the immigration appeal after conducting an error of law hearing can be challenged in the Court of Appeal (Civil Division), subject to grant of permission, if the appeal determination of the Upper Tribunal has a material error of law in the decision making process.
