If you have been given a custodial sentence of 12 months or more, or if you are a serious or persistent offender, the Home Office are allowed to investigate whether your removal from the UK is justified. Whilst you can argue that removal would interfere with your private and family life in the UK, you may be limited in your ability to do this by the length of your sentence and the nature of your offence.
If the Home Office have told you that they are considering deporting you, don’t wait for them to make a decision. Being pro-active and making representations to them as soon as possible is the best course of action. We can work with your family, friends, wardens, probation officers and forensic psychologists to set out the reasons your deportation would be disproportionate.
Should the Home Office seek to proceed with deportation, we can appeal this decision and will be able to represent you at your hearing.
If you are someone who has been deported, you are prevented from successfully applying to re-enter the UK for a decade. However, if there has been a significant change in circumstances that you consider justifies your re-entry, we can assist you in making representations to the Home Office asking that this ban be set aside.
