Judicial Review Public Law: 

Judicial review is the process of having a court rule on the exact lawfulness of a decision. Judicial review does include reviewing immigration and asylum decisions, as an official government body has exercised a public law function.

We support our clients with judicial reviews and injunctions, and having an office in the heart of the London legal district means we are well positioned to support our clients through this process.

Deportation and Removal: 

We have experience across the legal spectrum with respect to Prison Law, Immigration and Human Rights, which means we are ideally poised to advise and support you with the very serious situation of facing deportation or removal from the UK.

Typically, the UK Border Agency starts deportation or removal procedures when the foreign national is either in prison or in a detention centre.

We support our clients and their families with questionnaires, assembling evidence of family life and the length of UK residence, and drafting statements of family, friends or other community professionals. In addition, we can support our clients with:

  • Bail Applications
  • Appeals against Deportation Orders
  • Appeals to the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC)
  • Advocacy at tribunals

Immigration Law FAQs

Why use JD Spicer Zeb’s immigration solicitors?

Immigration law is increasingly complex.

With fees to make an application or lodge an appeal now running into several thousands of pounds, it pays to employ an experienced immigration solicitor to prepare your application, part of your application or just to check an application you have put together yourself, to ensure your chance of success.

Alternatively, we can take instructions from you and provide you with written advice about your case and the next steps you should follow, for a fixed fee. You may then be in a position to deal with the matter yourself, but if you need to, you could come back to us for further advice at a later stage.

However, the law is complicated and therefore it is wise to obtain specialist advice at the outset of the case, to avoid expensive mistakes and to make sure that your application is prepared properly.

A further factor to consider is the time you may spend waiting for a decision from the Home Office or Entry Clearance Officer, and the consequences of that decision being negative.

We advise that good preparation of a visa or leave application is essential, and that it is far better to take time at the beginning of a case than to risk a refusal.

If your application is refused, you will have to appeal the decision to have it overturned, and in family cases you may be apart from your family members for a long time whilst you go through the appeal process. 

To have the best prospects of success at appeal, representation is advisable, and this will also increase your costs if your application is refused.
