A person can be subject to a decision to deport them from the UK following a criminal conviction or imprisonment in the UK.
Offending by an individual can result in serious harm with the consequent result that the Home Office may begin deportation proceedings against them.
A person may be considered a persistent offender, even without having been imprisoned, such that they may receive notification that it is intended to deport them from the UK.
Challenging Home Office deportation decisions can be quite daunting and overwhelming.
This is because this area of immigration law is quite complex and can be difficult to navigate.
What you wish to achieve in order to resist deportation may involve and include:
- making written representations and submitting evidence when the Home Office first express an “interest” in you following a criminal conviction or a period of imprisonment in the UK
- relying on your UK settled or British child/Partner to resist deportation on the basis of your family life
- remaining in the UK because of your significant residence here, having established a private life in the UK
- arguing other compelling circumstances such that you should not be deported from the UK
- obtaining protection in the UK because of fears of risk to your life or safety in your country of origin
- gathering or sourcing of effective evidence, including expert evidence, to submit in support of your case
- seeking to appeal a Home Office decision to deport you
- applying for revocation of an existing deportation order whilst you are in the UK
- applying to revoke an existing deportation order whilst you are outside the UK
