Certification of human rights appeals

By 2nd December 2016Appeals, legislation

02 December 2016

The Immigration Act 2016 has started to bite.  From yesterday the Home Office have had the power to ‘certify’ a case if the applicant did not have leave to be in the UK, and if the application was not based on a relationship with a British partner, parent or child.

The effect of a case being certified is that there is no right of appeal from within the UK – you can only appeal once you have left the UK.
