Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
I was refused leave to remain and in the letter, after they have listed all the reasons there is a one stop warning. It says I have the right to appeal by completing the notice of appeal or if you are not appealing but have further reasons you wish us to consider you should send them to reach us within the next 10 working days. But it went on to say if you do not appeal you should make plans to leave the country and you may be a person liable for detention and so on and so forth. I found this very ambiguous. Questions: if I don't appeal and decide to submit further reasons for them to consider, if unsuccessful, do I loose my right to appeal? secondly, is it advisable to appeal as the immigration judges are in a better position to make a better judgement on any further grounds I may have to submit especially with the issue of insurmountable obstacles?
Hello,Yes, you would lose the right to appeal if you do not do so within the 10 days and if you have good reasons to challenge the refusal, you should definitely appeal.
At the same time as appealing, you may also send the Home Office reasons for you appealing. No harm in doing that and if the Home Office accepts your arguments, it has the power to reverse the refusal and grant the application without need for appealing. Yes, it is always advisable to appeal when you have the right to appeal as the immigration judges are often more knowledgeable about the law and are impartial.All the best
