Human Rights Applications
If you require assistance with a Human Rights Application then Blacks Solicitors’ specialist Immigration team in Leeds can help.
Our Human Rights are set out in an international treaty named the ‘European Convention on Human Rights’ and these rights are brought into British law through the Human Rights Act.
In terms of immigration, individuals will often seek to rely on their right to a private and family life under Article 8 of the Convention.
The Government has tried to bring Article 8 cases into the Immigration Rules through various immigration categories such as Appendix FM, and many partners, children and other family members will be able to make a Human Rights Application under the Immigration Rules.
These applications have strict evidential requirements and a failure to provide certain documents will lead to a refusal. The Application process changes regularly and most individuals struggle to make sense of it, but we can help ensure you have the correct supporting documents and guide you through the processes involved.
However, in reality, there remain many scenarios when an individual will have a reasonable basis to stay in the UK based on their Article 8 rights, and yet their situation doesn’t neatly fit into any category.
In these circumstances, a Human Rights Application might have to be made ‘outside of the Rules’ and under Article 8 of the Convention.
Our solicitors are particularly skilled at handling these complex cases and are adept at strategic case-management; finding solutions to clients’ cases which might not be apparent to other legal advisers.
