Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
An asylum claim has to be made now upon entry to the UK. It was one of the amendments of the Blair Government.
I'm afraid this was exactly what the whole amendment was designed to address.
If he isn't being prosecuted for PWITs though and instead is being deported then overall that is a good deal.
i'm very sorry but that is the law now.
Can I clarify anything for you?
I am sorry but he should have claimed asylum when he arrived.
The amendments were to address this situation.
At this stage, he cannot.
Not if he is here illegally.
I don't know whether there is a human rights claim but then he would have to have family here and probably it would fail.
I will help if I can.
im happy to continue but please rate my answer.
Hello. My name is*****’m a specialist Immigration lawyer with many years of experience in Immigration and Asylum law.
Just to clarify that a claim for asylum must be made in person and as soon as possible.
There is no requirement that a claim must be made upon entry to the UK otherwise you are "barred" so to speak. An application can be made at any time after you arrive in the UK. However, your application is more likely to be denied if you wait.
Whether you have a recognisable human rights claim will depend on how embedded your private and family life is in the UK.
Each person per claim. You cannot have a joint claim. Is that what you mean?
You have indicated you have a fiance. Can you provide a bit more background about your relationship.
OK with regard to your family and private life, your relationship is nascent and would not meet the threshold for two reasons.
1. Your relationship and engagement is in knowledge that your partner is an illegal immigrant so the Home Office is more likely to allege a marriage of convenience.
2. Your relationship is only 6 months old and he has not been in the UK for at least 20 years.
How old is your partner? Do you have children together?
Ok thank you for the information.
