Person is facing Removal or deportation from the UK
If you are facing removal or deportation from the United Kingdom, our UK based team of Immigration advisers help you being removed or deported. We can also seek bail or temporary release from detention on your behalf. However, it is not an easy task and it all depends on your circumstances. Immigration Officers are not very helpful with information, and the demand for assistance within detention centers is very high.
For a person who is detained, it can be very difficult to find any legal assistance without outside help from family and friends. Such assistance is necessary, not least because time spent in detention could be unlawful. There is an added possibility of mandatory bans of up to 10 years being imposed if the person is removed or deported from the UK.
The Home Office have an obligation to follow their own internal policies on detention and must not detain people beyond 9 hours for purpose of Interview and the time may exceed if you have been booked for being an overstayer or Illegal. Furthermore, family members of those who are due to be removed or deported may also have their Human Rights breached if such action takes place.

- Applications for temporary release or admission;
