After permission to appeal has been granted, the Upper Tribunal may rehear the appeal to decide whether or not there was a material error of law made by the Immigration Judge who determined the appeal at First Tier Tribunal.

The Upper Tribunal has the power to rehear the appeal and determine the appeal themselves and either maintain the decision of the Immigration Judge or set aside the same and make a new decision. In some cases, the Upper Tribunal may remit the appeal back to the First Tier Tribunal after deciding that there was a material error of law in the appeal determination of the Immigration Judge.

Our service consists of the following:

  • Advice on procedures and appraising relevant documents
  • Advice on strength and weaknesses of your case
  • Representing you before the Upper Tribunal on the date of appeal hearing
  • Liaison with the Upper Tribunal until decision by the Upper Tribunal on your appeal

After the hearing, the Upper Tribunal has the power to overrule the decision and make its own judgement or order the First-tier Tribunal to hear the case again.

At Chris Alexander Solicitors our fee for Legal Representation at the Upper Tribunal following Grant of permission to appeal is £800 (+ 20% VAT) for our professional immigration services.  This standard fee will cover all our work until a decision is made by the Upper Tribunal on your matter.

The standard fee will not cover any disbursements which are incurred e.g. translation of documents, or subsequent appeal rights. If you cannot afford to pay our fee in full at the time of instructing us in relation to your application, you can pay half of the fee at the time of instructing us and the balance can be paid by monthly instalments.
