We can help you to appeal to the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) if your appeal has been dismissed by the Immigration Judge and there has been a legal mistake with the decision.

The tribunal is independent of government and will listen to both sides of the argument before making a decision.

The first stage is to ask the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) for permission to appeal to the Upper Tribunal. We will make a case as to why the decision was legally wrong, which could be due to not applying the correct law, not following the correct procedures and insufficient evidence to support its decision.

Our service consists of the following:

  • Consider the appeal decision and advise you on possible grounds to challenge the decision on a material error of law
  • Advice on procedures and relevant documents to be submitted in support of your permission application
  • Advice on strength and weaknesses of your case
  • Drafting and submission of grounds in support of the permission application
  • Communication with the First Tier Tribunal until decision has been reached

If permission is refused by the First Tier Tribunal, we will also assist you with making a further application for permission to the Upper Tribunal without any further legal charges.

At Chris Alexander Solicitors our fee for applications to the First Tier Tribunal for Permission to Appeal to the Upper Tribunal is £500 (+ 20% VAT) for our professional immigration services.  This standard fee will cover all our work until a decision is made by the First Tier Tribunal on your application. The standard fee includes perusal of documents, drafting and lodging of Grounds for permission.

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.
