Hello Ali

I'm sure I had paid £180 (£90 for each set). Both sets have the same fee. Please confirm with others.

I will definitely share my experience the day of hearing. I hope everything will go fine. Please remember me in your duas.

Hello guys
I been reading this from last one year. No idea what gonna happen to us. I applied for iLR after 3 years of marriage just after proceeding my divorce my partner left uk for her home country. HO refused my application that my divorce is not fainalised yet so I’m still a family member of EEA and I didn’t provide my partner original ID/Passport. So I appeal HO decision and hearing was 6september 2018. Just before 4 days of hearing HO served the tribunal with toeic bundle against me which I did in 2012. I adjourned the court as I wasn’t ready for this to be questioned. Now my hearing in March 2019.
Anyone out there have an idea could home office bring this toeic issue under the EU applications? Really confused about it.
Good luck everyone

Hi Peter
I never heard they directly call to the client if the matter is dealing via solicitor. please make sure they contact your solicitor and barrister. How they will remove the toeic allegation. Reconsideration means will they remove the deception?

My case is also related to Islam and hossain. But I have two allegation one toeic second vanacey is not genuine. I got the hearing in Ftt this month once I clear the toeic then they deal with the second point. GLD wrote to my solicitor today and toeic issue will be dealt in FTT.

If you are amenable to the terms of this settlement, please sign the attached form of consent and return it to me. I will then arrange for it to be filed at court.

Hi Mnee
Did you receive anything yet ? and update us with your case
even if HO won't do anything and waste time in reviewing the case under human rights grounds , do you think we have any other option now ? got to start from beginning through the FTT.

I have an appointment with my legal advisor tomorrow and will hear what he is going to say.

Urgent Attention!
GLD is sending Proposal lIke this on ETS Matter. Pls share your ideas guys.

Dear Sirs,

As you are aware already, the Court of Appeal issued directions on the 16th August 2018 and I am required to communicate to you a proposal from my client, the Home Office, on how your matter should be progressed going forward.

This is following the recent judgment at the Court of Appeal in Khan, Islam and Hossain in new style PBS cases

May I begin by apologising unreservedly to you and your clients for the delay in sending to you this proposal.

There were unforeseen delays and problems in meeting the Court’s deadline of the 7th September.

These issues have now been resolved and we have taken our client’s instructions.

I am hopeful that once you receive this email and taken your client’s instructions, that you will be on course to reply to me with your views on the proposed offer of settlement from my client below by the next deadline from the Court. I appreciate that this is not far away, but this is due to the factors I have explained above.

Once I get a response from you, I will then be able to update the Court on the overall position in respect of matters such as yours by 4pm on Friday 19th October.

I am hopeful that the parties in this matter will still be on track to adhere to the Court’s timetable, notwithstanding the delays encountered so far.

In terms of a proposal, my client wishes to offer your client the following terms, which will be included in a draft consent order which will follow shortly, in order to try and settle this case. These are as follows;

“CONSENT ORDER

HAVING REGARD to the requirements of paragraph 6 of the Practice Direction 52A to Part 52 of the Civil Procedure rules.

AND UPON the parties confirming that none of the parties to these proceedings is a child or a protected party

AND UPON all parties hereto requesting that the Court dismiss the appeal by consent without determining the merits.

AND UPON the Respondent accepting that the Appellant has made a human rights claim which, if refused, will attract an in-country right of appeal to the First-Tier Tribunal, subject to the exercise of certification powers under section 94 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002;

AND UPON the Appellant undertaking to submit full particulars relating to his claim that removal would breach his human rights within 28 calendar days from the date that the Court seals this order;

AND UPON the Respondent agreeing to issue a new decision within 3 months from the date any representations are received from the Applicant or if no submissions are received from the Applicant, within 4 months from the date this order is sealed by the Court, absent special circumstances.

AND UPON the Respondent agreeing that if this further decision results in the Appellant being granted leave to remain or if the Appellant succeeds in any appeal, on the basis that he did not commit a TOEIC fraud then, in the absence of some new factor justifying a different course, the Respondent will rescind the decision under challenge before the Court of Appeal and;

Treat the claimant as being an in time applicant since the date of the decision under challenge before the Court of Appeal (and any earlier period as may be established), subject to there being no other periods where the Appellant was an overstayer;

Grant the Appellant a reasonable opportunity, being not less than 60 days, to submit an application for further leave as appropriate;

Waive any fee or charge (including health surcharge) that might be payable for making such an application.

AND UPON the Appellant accordingly applying to withdraw the underlying judicial review proceedings on the basis that the parties agree that the matter is academic in light of the foregoing:

BY CONSENT IT IS ORDERED:

1. The Appeal is dismissed;

2. The Appellant is granted permission to withdraw his claim for judicial review;

3. There shall be no order for costs”

In terms of the position on your client’s judicial review matter, I will come back to you on my client’s position shortly on this issue.

In the meantime, I would be grateful if you could communicate this offer to your client for consideration and let me know as soon as possible if your client is content with the rest of the terms above?

Two further points.

I have copied in the Court of Appeal into this email so they can be content that our client’s proposals have been communicated to you.

We would be grateful, when you respond, if you could ensure please that you do not copy in the Court into any email. That is because the Court does not have to be copied in at this stage whilst you respond. The Court’s own letter of the 16th August 2018 states this.

I am our client’s lead lawyer on ETS matters here at GLD, so I will respond directly to you on behalf of our client.

I wait to hear from you as a matter of urgency.

If any of the above is unclear then do please let me know and I will make contact with you to explain matters, so to ensure you understand everything clearly.

Should you require any further assistance or information then please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards

Hi,
I have been reading this forum from last few days and it is quite helpful. Well i want to share my case as well. I applied for spouse visa extension on premium service in july 2018.HO rejected my visa extension due to toeic which i did in 2011. I appealed against the decision and my hearing date was in oct. We adjourned the hearing date because we didnt receive the full bundle from HO and we were waiting for subject access request aswell. My hearing date is now in the next week. I saw HO bundle they sent spread sheet,inquiry abt the college and witness statements, sm & qadeer case, and all of my own documents that i submitted this time in my premium service. Well the shocking thing is there is a questionable certificate from some college in the spreadsheet which i never did and i have never been to that college. They rejected the visa because of the toeic which i did and they are accusing me for getting this certificate fraudlently. Its been 7 year and i have been to back home for 2 years from 2013 to 2015 and i dnt remember now how much i paid. I did 5 english test till now including toeic and 4 of them are ielts. Can anyone give me any suggestions about the hearing day what kind of questions they ask and how much they do cross questioning. It will be quite helpful
