Everyone has the right to respect for his of her private and family life, home and correspondence. This right is subject to proportionate and lawful restrictions.

Article 8 is a broad-ranging right that is often closely connected with other rights such as freedom of religion, freedom of expression, freedom of association and the right to respect for property.

The obligation on the State under Article 8 (Human Rights) is to refrain from interfering with the right itself and also to take some positive measures, for example,

to criminalize extreme breaches of the right to a private life by private individuals.

Private life includes:

  • respect for individual sexuality (so, for example, investigations into the sexuality of members of the armed forces engages the right to respect for a                        private life);
  • the right to personal autonomy and physical and psychological integrity, i.e. the right not to be physically interfered with;
  • respect for private and confidential information, particularly the storing and sharing of such information;
  • the right not to be subject to unlawful state surveillance;
  • respect for privacy when one has a reasonable expectation of privacy; and
  • the right to control the dissemination of information about one’s private life, including photographs taken covertly.

Article 8 (Human Rights) also provides the right to respect for one’s established family life.  This includes close family ties, although there is no pre-determined model of a family or family life.  It includes any stable relationship, be it married, engaged, or de facto; between parents and children; siblings; grandparents and grandchildren etc.  This right is often engaged, for example, when measures are taken by the State to separate family members (by removing children).

Asher and Tomar Solicitors are at the forefront of UK Immigration Service hence we are regularly instructed by clients who wish to challenge the decisions of the immigration authorities.

We act for clients before every higher level court, including:

  • The Special Immigration Appeal Commission (SIAC)
  • The Court of Appeal
  • The Supreme Court
  • The European Court of Human Rights
  • The Court of Justice of the European Union

Immigration Judicial Review Proceedings

Our work also encompasses Judicial Review proceedings in immigration cases where the Secretary of State has taken an unlawful decision or action and

there is no alternative remedy.

We can apply for a Judicial Review to seek:

Ø   a mandatory order (i.e. an order requiring the Secretary of State to do something such as process a pending/outstanding application).

Ø  a prohibiting order or a quashing order (i.e. an order quashing the Secretary of State’s decision such as in deportation cases)

We can make an application for Judicial Review not only to challenge decisions or to delay removal but also to prompt the Home Office to produce an initial decision in the first place because all other avenues (such as letters and complaint to MPs) have failed. A judicial review is a vital tool not just for the challenging unlawful decision but also for inertia.

Given the well-documented delays at the Home Office claimants may resort to judicial review in order to get a decision out of the Home Office.                                   In such circumstances,

judicial review is not a means of blocking an administrative decision, but of getting one in the first place.
