The immigration detention is the policy of detaining individuals who are suspected of visa violations, unauthorized arrival or illegal entry. Those who are being held at the detention centre or Immigration Removal Centres (IRCs) are subject to deportation and removal until a decision is made by the immigration authorities.

The process of detention can have stressful consequences if not handled effectively. The immigration authorities can decide whether to grant a visa, release the individual into the community, or to deport them to their country of origin at their own expense.

Moreover, there is the added possibility of a mandatory ban of up to 10 years if an individual is removed or deported from the United Kingdom. This can cause increasing pressure for the detainee, not only because of the time spent in detention, but also because it is nearly impossible to find legal assistance without help from family or friends.

Legal representation is essential if the process is to be undertaken in line with the latest regulations, which tend to change frequently.

At Farani Taylor, our immigration solicitors ensure that the correct interpretation of the rules are applied, and provide reliable advice in assessing the legality of detained persons under the UK Immigration Acts.

Our Immigration solicitors work closely with our Human Rights department, providing assistance to clients who have been unlawfully detained or who may have endured abusive treatment from Immigration Removal Centre staff.

If you or someone you know is facing difficulties of detention or deportation from the UK, call us today to arrange a meeting on 0207 118 1666.
