    Leave to remain granted after long battle

    After a lengthy battle, Miss Begum has been able to secure a decision of indefinite leave to remain for a client.

    The client arrived to the UK in 2001 and was later joined by her son in 2002.

    The client was not allowed to work due to her status in the UK and spent much of time doing voluntary work and helping her local community however she could.


    She had a relationship with a British national which resulted in birth of their daughter.  Sadly the relationship broke down however the father remained in contact with the daughter.


    In 2013 the client submitted application on basis of her residence and private life in the UK.  Both her children were dependants on the application. (the father did not put his name on birth certificate and did not consent to DNA testing so we could not prove daughter was British)


    In 2014 the application was refused due to her son’s conviction whilst he was a teenager which was not disclosed on application form given that it was already spent. We issued judicial review proceedings. The Home Office conceded and agreed to remake a fresh decision.


    The new decision granted the son leave to remain as he was now 18 and met the rules in his own right but refused the mother and daughter stating they could return to Jamaica and son was old enough to look after himself. Our client was given the right to appeal from this country.  We challenged the decision on the basis of the dependency her son still had on his mother which did not suddenly stop with him turning 18.  We argued the family life established between them was not adequately considered especially between the siblings. The matter proceeded to appeal hearing which took nearly 18 months before it was finally listed.

    In the interim client managed to obtain DNA testing for daughter proving her relationship to her British father.  This was forwarded to the Home Office presenting office with the view to have them rethink proceeding to full hearing.  They accepted the evidence and our client was finally granted leave to remain with both her son and daughter.

    We were all delighted with the final outcome, and these chocolates and card were very nice to receive too.
