OTS Successful EEA Deportation Appeal and EU Family Members Application
Mr M was an EEA citizen from the Czech Republic. In his home country, he had allegedly charged with various criminal offences. M contacted us from the detention centre, where he was awaiting deportation. He had been refused bail, and the 14 day deadline in which to lodge an appeal against the decision to deport him had passed.
How we Helped Mr M
We advised and assisted M in submitting an ‘out of time appeal’, which proved to be a successful strategy. The Immigration Tribunal can allow an ‘out of time appeal’, if the Appellants circumstances would make it unjust to deny it. Mr M’s Grounds of Appeal were successful and his case was allowed in the Frist Tier Tribunal.
