Judicial Review

If your immigration was unsuccessful, then you may be able to apply for a Judicial Review, which will investigate the authorities in charge of rejecting your application. If your review application to the High Court of England and Wales is successful, your rejection may be overturned or reversed, allowing you to immigrate to the UK.

 

At PHRPL, we have many years of experience in Judicial Reviews, and we’ll help you to get the best result possible, no matter your personal situation.

At PHRPL we have been conducting Judicial Reviews on behalf of clients for many years. Fighting many successfully we are in the right position to find justice for you.

How we can help:

PHRPL will review your case and identify what went wrong and what we can improve on, including:

  • Talking about potential sources of new evidence in your own country and the UK
  • Working alongside expert witnesses who can assess your account and evidence and support your claim

Most new claims are rejected by the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) authority, but can often be appealed by Judicial Review. Our experienced lawyers will help you to submit an application that can be defended in the tribunal if it’s rejected by the Secretary of State.

Examples of new Evidence for a Fresh Claim

Examples of new Evidence for a Fresh Claim

  • Receiving news that you are still a target of persecution
  • Changes in your country since you left
  • There is proof that the Home Office wrongly applied a policy
  • Proof that the Home Office wrongly applied a policy
  • The Home Office using a policy or procedure that is now deemed unlawful
  • Provable risk of discrimination because of your sexuality
  • Conversion to Christianity after interactions with support group
  • You are a victim of trafficking

The Home Office is likely to doubt changes in your circumstances, especially if you didn’t disclose this information from the start of your initial claim. This is why it’s vital to gather evidence for your claim from the start, which our experienced team are excellent at.

If you want to make a new claim but don’t fit one of the examples listed above, our lawyers can advise whether your evidence is relevant enough for a new claim.

Preparing a Fresh Claim

Our team will help you to prepare a new claim and write accompanying statements, but you may have to collect the evidence yourself. After that, you should review the documents from your original asylum/human rights claim. These may include:

  • The form from your Home Office screening interview
  • The transcript from your interview for asylum
  • Witness statements and other evidence
  • The Reasons for Refusal letter from the Home Office
  • The first court refusal of your appeal and any other court decisions

If you are missing any of these documents, your lawyers will contact the Home Office and request them on your behalf. You then have to :

  • Gather your new evidence
  • Write a letter explaining the new evidence, including what they are, how you obtained them and why they should be considered
  • Submit your evidence in person, unless you have mitigating circumstances

Your lawyers will be with you every step of the way to ensure each step of your fresh claim is carried out accurately.
