We have noticed that as the Immigration Rules are tighter by the Home Office (UK Border Agency) therefore many applicants are not able to meet the visa criteria and leading their visa being refused and putting their case in jeopardy, but some of the cases are refused without the proper assessment of the Secretary of State (in-country applications) or by the Entry Clearance Office (overseas applications).
Being into this practice since long time we encourage our clients to always appeal against the notice of refusal.

ARTICLE 8 RIGHT TO A PRIVATE AND FAMILY LIFE
Everyone has the right to respect for his of her private and family life, home and correspondence. This right is subject to proportionate and lawful restrictions.
Article 8 is a broad-ranging right that is often closely connected with other rights such as freedom of religion, freedom of expression, freedom of association and the right to respect for property.
The obligation on the State under Article 8 (Human Rights) is to refrain from interfering with the right itself and also to take some positive measures, for example, to criminalize extreme breaches of the right to a private life by private individuals.
Private life Includes:
- Respect for individual sexuality (so, for example, investigations into the sexuality of members of the armed forces engages the right to respect for a private life);
- The right to personal autonomy and physical and psychological integrity, i.e. the right not to be physically interfered with;
- Respect for private and confidential information, particularly the storing and sharing of such information;
- The right not to be subject to unlawful state surveillance;
- Respect for privacy when one has a reasonable expectation of privacy; and
- The right to control the dissemination of information about one’s private life, including photographs taken covertly.
Article 8 (Human Rights) also provides the right to respect for one’s established family life. This includes close family ties, although there is no pre-determined model of a family or family life. It includes any stable relationship, be it married, engaged, or defactor ; between parents and children; siblings; grandparents and grandchildren etc. This right is often engaged, for example, when measures are taken by the State to separate family members (by removing children).
- A) The Immigration Act 2014 reduced the number of rights of appeal against immigration decisions from 17 to 4. It also created a new power to require those subject to deportation, primarily foreign criminals, to appeal only after their removal – i.e. from outside the UK – where this does not cause a real risk of serious irreversible harm or otherwise breach human rights
