appeal for ilr application

Postby bcm » Wed Dec 19, 2012 10:48 pm

i arrived in the UK in november 2000. i applied for ilr last december, application refused, given right of appeal, appealed, won the appeal but then home office appealed and so have to go for another appeal hearing in feb 2013. the refusal was because i had 2 gaps, in september 2002 and 2005. all 10 years was as a student. now the first gap has been covered so to speak as I have been here almost 12 years now. my first gap was actually the complicated one but the second gap was due to sickness and I have letters from gp to back this. although the gap was 13 days, i am confident we have a strong argument based on long term illness. what are your views, members?

the second question is, I am having my appeal in feb 2013 but not happy with my barristers, can i change my representatives at this stage? i feel the firm i am using are very weird and i don't have any confidence in them. their service is also very impersonal! i cannot speak to anyone, all correspondence is via emails which i find odd. i prefer a solicitor or legal advisor who is there when I need them! i am also mad that they changed my hearing from a london appeal centre to a birmingham one to suit them! they didn't even consult me before making this change. I am very furious with them. what should i do??????

Honestly, it depends on the judge, his mood and documents you show to back your case up and yeah of course your solicitor.

You can change your representative at any time. Only drawback with changing representatives is that the new one would need some time to work on your case. In my opinion, if you wanna go with a different barrister/solicitor you should do it asap to allow them enough time to study and prepare your case.
Goodluck.
