During a recent ILPA training session it was discussed that a 10 year Rule may be abolished, but the 14 year Rule will probably remain.

Again, this was just a discussion and colleagues' opinions.

To get a deport order you must have been sentenced for 12 or more moths.

It must have been a removal order.

Why your lawyer cannot assist you with that ?

The average time for EEA2 is about 4 months. Yours has been under consideration for 5 months, if I am not mistaken, so hopefully you should get a decision soon. Sometimes the UK BA sends out requests for additional documents. Have you received any ? I came across a few cases when the requests were s...

Re: Pendingasylum appeal since 2002

You can request a copy of your UK BA file under the Subject Access Request. It should contain all the answers to your questions: http://www.ind.homeoffice.gov.uk/navigation/personal-data/ A letter could have been lost. Ideally you should have chased the court long time ago.

Re: Voluntarily leaving from UK is need any documents

A very general question. "Specified time" could be 10 years, by the way. It would be desirable to at least inform the UK BA/UK IS etc, who is dealing with your case, that the person is leaving, so their file could be updated. Or you mean that you came in unstopped, never came into the light of the U...

Re: Premium visa through solicitor???

There are a number of visas that can be lodged via the so-called same day service either yourself or via a representative. A lawyer is not a magician and should always go by the Rules. The same say service (not necessarily with a lawyer) gives a chance to discuss certain problems with the caseworker...

Re: how long ukba takes to respond to MP's enquiry

As we are working with MP virtually every week, it takes the UK BA about 20 days to reply. The UK BA has a separate MP's correspondence section. Do not expect much from the MP's inquiry. It is likely to be a formal 1.5 pages general response, sometimes not even to the point. Hi I applied tier 1 G si...
