Judicial review in the context of immigration cases is a legal challenge issued for a judge to review the lawfulness of a decision or action made by the Home Office. If the decision made against you was unreasonable, irrational or unfair and not in accordance with your Human Rights, you may have grounds to request the High Court or Upper Tribunal to conduct a judicial review of the decision. Claims for judicial reviews can also be bought where there is no right of appeal.
Judicial reviews are complex with a range of procedures to follow before one can be issued, for example, a pre-action letter must first be sent to the Home Office before the petition for judicial review is issued. You have 3 months from the decision to issue a claim for judicial review and given the complexity of the procedure, we recommend you come and speak to us as soon as possible to see if this is an option you could be entitled to explore.
