HO is backing out and they have recently sent me a consent order to settle the dispute outside the court. Otherwise, you are right it is expensive and tidious process.

Beat regards,
then its better you get some legal advice.

Just to update everyone on this forum, I lodged application to Upper Tribunal on 05/06/2018 to seek the permission for Judicial Review on paper. Yesterday, 29/06/2018, I have received acknowledgment of service from HO as they don’t want to contest this in court and have proposed a consent order. The terms are:

They will review the application within three months if I withdraw the JR application and there be no order as to costs.

Is it a good good idea to accept their proposal to settle this dispute outside the court knowingly they may come up with frivolous grounds again to refuse the entry clearance?

Is it possible to negotiate the time period with HO such as four weeks instead of three months?

It it possible to ask them to agree to pay reasonable (from PAP onward) costs?

Please advise and share your experience if any one of you has been through similar situation?

Bests regards,
I am on the same voat . Last month I received the same consent order after filed jr . But my solictor advice me to accept home office offer but don’t know what they goona do with in 3 months. refuse again or interview again
Please update me if you get any reply from ukba
Thx

I have sent them amended consent order asking them to pay reasonable legal costs and they have agreed straight away. Then, both parties signed the consent order and was sent to the upper tribunal. I received sealed consent order from the the upper teibunal dated 26th July. It is almost a month now and two more to go. I have similar questions in my mind but I’ll update my timline on this forum as soon as i hear from them.

You are entitled to your legal costs and you should ask them to pay since you are getting full relief from HO. Even after winning JR the case would have been reconsidered the way it is being reconsidered now.

Where did you apply? Is it 200k application? What is your timeline?

Best regards,

Hi Ravian,

Any update since you last posted? I am in the same boat and preparing a PAP but I do understand a PAP is just a formality.

Hi All,

My three months from the date of signing of consent order ended on 26th October. I did not hear back from the SSHD which means the terms of the consent order weren’t honoured. I chased treasury solicitor for update. I received the legal cost back in my account on 29th October. Then, I received email on 5th November from Sheffield for the interview scheduled on 8th November. After giving interview, I received another email on 20th November from the decision making centre in Sheffield asking me to provide the evidence showing the the funds of £3310 for 90 days prior to application. I replied back on same day and provided same bank statement which I provided with my application in Jan. Now, I am again waiting and keeping my fingers crossed. I’ll post all the details when I hear back final decision.

Best regards,

Dear All,

Surprisingly after being interviewed on 8th Novemever, another interview called up today and scheduled on 6th December. It is going to be my second interview after agreeing to the consent order and overall third interview. I am wondering if there anyone who has been in the similar situation and what to expect as everything has already been discussed about the business plan in detail jn last interview.

Best regards,

Hello,

I have read your thread. How was your interview on 6th December?

I am thinking to prepare a PAP however my deadline is 16th December and my lawyer is abroad on holiday. Can I prepare this myself in such a short period of time for the tier 1 entreprenuer visa extension? Please advise.

Many thanks in advance.

Dear Amalik,

The interview was of two hours again but the questions were mostly the same and slightly more focus on business plan than the information on application form. I still don’t understand what was the purpose of this second interview.

PAP is just a formality and you can prepare yourself the grounds for PAP and it is very likely that the ECM will not change the original decision. You should actually prepare for JR and this is where you would actually need a solicitor/Barrister to carefully draft your grounds.

All the best.

Best regards,

Thank you for your response.

I am trying to draft a PAP - if you don't mind could you share your PAP as an example?

It is strange that they are interviewing you repeatedly. Really hard to guess what the Home Office is thinking - often seem to just be wasting time.

Dear all,

I am please to inform you that SSHD has finally overturned the original decision and has decided to grant entey clearance. Today, I have received the email. I’ll update the timeline of the whole process as I get my passport back.

All the best and if you are in the same boat, I would say, be patient, don’t get frustrated and follow the due process.
