Previous year more than half a million people were unable for the applications to enter or remain in the UK. But this time we will not let this happen, because UK has a proud tradition of providing a place of safety for authentic refugees. However, we are determined to refuse protection to those who do not need it, and will take steps to remove those who are found to have made false claims.
UK holds to the European Convention on Human Rights, which prevents the relevant authorities from sending anyone to a country where there is a risk of that they will be under torture, or inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
We will assist you in such a way:
Our experts will advise you on how to make a claim for asylum in the UK and deal with the Home Office on your behalf.
When you are required to give a screening interview we will accompany you to the Home Office where you will be asked common questions regarding to your claim for asylum.
Subsequent to your interview the Home Office will provide you with suitable accommodation and monies for your daily living costs should you require the same until your case has been decided.
We will represent you if your case goes to an oral hearing at the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal, where the Appeals are decided by one or more Immigration Judges, sitting at the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT)
Therefore it is crucial that you have legal representation during your claim for asylum as the Home Office has the tendency to be unduly harsh to asylum seekers and deny them their entitlements.
However the Home Office may decide to detain you and put your case on the Fast Track route if they think that they can decide your case quickly
We ensure that our clients are treated fairly and provide advice and re-assurance as we understand that it can be a difficult time for them during the asylum process.
Once the initial interview has been concluded you will then be required to attend a substantive interview, which may take several hours. We can accompany you during this interview, as the Home Office can in some instances be aggressive in their questioning, at which point we can intervene.
Following the lengthy interview the Home office will then make a decision if your claim for asylum has been successful. If your claim is refused you will be entitled to appeal against that decision which has to be done urgently
The appeal will be heard before an Immigration Judge at court where we will represent you and make submissions that the Home office made the wrong decision and that your appeal should be allowed
The Immigration Judge can allow your claim for asylum, which the Home Office have to honour.
