Immigration Judicial Review Applications and Pre-action Protocol Letters

If you have submitted representations or an application and it has been refused with no right to appeal then you may wish to consider submitting a judicial review application if you feel that the Home Office have made an error of law or acted outside its powers.

A judicial review should be lodged with the court within 3 months of receiving the decision. The first step would be to submit a pre-action protocol letter to the relevant body (in an Immigration matter, it is usually against the Home Office). If there is no response or a negative reply is received, you would then consider lodging an application for judicial review with the court to see whether they will grant you permission to take the matter further.

At Vestra Lawyers, we have the knowledge and expertise to help you with these types of applications. Contact us today to speak to our specialist solicitors by calling 0121 728 5999 / 0203 929 5999 or alternatively you can email us at
