Asylum & Illegal Immigration

If you had to flow your home country because of your fear of persecution on the basis of your race, religion, nationality, political opinion or anything else that puts you at risk because of the social, cultural, religious or political situation in your country and if you are unable to return home, you may be allowed to stay in the UK if the authorities find your claim to be credible. To be able to stay in the UK as a refugee you must be unable to live safely in any part of your own country because you fear persecution there.

Bail, Detention and Temporary Admission

In exercising immigration control, the Home Office may detain and remove people who has no lawful basis to remain in the United Kingdom. Depending on your circumstances, for example, if there is a strong case in favour of your release, you may be released from detention on a temporary basis.

If you have not been yet detained and are asking the Home Office not to detain you, you may be granted Temporary Admission that allows you to stay in the country until the decision is made on any of your immigration matter.

If you are already detained, however, you may make an application for bail, that may enable you to stay in the UK temporarily until the decision is made on any of your immigration matter. Bail enables sureties to be taken and forfeited should the person fail to comply with any bail conditions. An initial application for bail is made to the Home Office and if this is refused, you may make a bail application can be made to the First-tier Tribunal.

When Temporary Admission or Bail is granted, it is granted for a limited period usually with conditions attached. If you fail to meet these conditions, you will be detained.

LS Legal Solicitors has a proven record of successful release of the detained people.
