The Home Office has the power to detain people who are liable to be removed or deported from the UK. The experience of being held in an Immigration Removal Centre (IRC) can be highly distressing for the detained individual, as well as their friends and family. The UK currently practices indefinite detention of migrants, and sometimes people are deprived of their liberty for months or even years.
If you are seeking to challenge your detention status, it is recommendable to have to have an immigration lawyer by your side. The Home Office will always be represented by a lawyer arguing for your continued detention.
The team at Kings Cross Barristers has many years of experience working with people to challenge their detention status. We have assisted hundreds of detainees secure release through bail applications as well as making successful unlawful detention claims in the High Court.
