Harding Mitchell Human Rights Solicitors in London | Things You Need to Know About Human Rights Applications in the UK
Our Human Rights Solicitors in London can help those facing issues with their applications for Human Rights Applications in the UK.
When making an application under the human rights act of 1988, the rights of qualifying citizens (as defined under the ECHR) must be fully observed and adhered to by all types of public bodies and organisations. For accuracy and full understanding of the application it is advisable to seek the assistance of one of our specialist human rights solicitors.
In the following article, we aim to provide some pointers and guidelines that may be useful to persons who wish to pursue such matters under the current laws and legislation including:
Article 8 is likely to be one of the primary articles in virtually any case that involves the matter of immigration into the United Kingdom
A person’s family and private rights may fall under the scope of the aforementioned article which was originally set in place for such purpose
Article 8, however, should not be taken as an absolute right in all and every circumstance under immigration law
Un-proportionate interference with article 8 does however come under the scope of the relevant UK authorities
The prevention and prohibition of degrading and/or inhuman treatments including torture are encompassed under the scope of article 3 while the “right to life” is covered under article 2

Our team of human rights solicitors in London and experts are able to provide legal services and advice with the following human rights applications:
Private life visa
The application as outlined and broadly defined in article 8 concerning rights appertaining to private and family life
Such laws are currently observed by persons residing within the borders of the council of European Countries. In these circumstances, article 8 is highly relevant to many of the decisions concerning immigration within the member states. Under article 8, the establishment and maintenance of home and family life is a given right to everyone
In the presence of evidence that supports established private and family life in the UK, applicants may seek the leave to remain here regardless of visa qualification under domestic law
Anyone can apply for the visa provided that:
They already have a spouse or close family within the UK
They have exceeded the limit of their stay in the UK
They are an asylum seeker
An asylum claim has been refused them
They are a person who has no claim to enter and remain within the United Kingdom under the EEA regulations or UK immigration rules
The discretionary leave to remain visa
A person is able to remain in the UK on the grounds that removing them from the UK would violate their rights under article 8 of the ECHR
A visa issued under such circumstances would be approved outside of UK immigration laws by the Secretary of State
In deciding and granting such cases on the grounds of human rights, the exceptional and /or compassionate circumstances of the applicant would be considered highly relevant and important
There may be cases where the Home Office has refused a claim for asylum on the grounds that they don’t recognise such a person as a refuge and that they further didn’t qualify for humanitarian protection. In such situations, such applicants may still exercise the discretionary leave to remain option
While this option is only approved in limited circumstances, it is usually granted for a 3-year initial period. This means that after 3 years, there will be a need to apply for an extension which will then take into account the applicants circumstances at that time
Remaining in the UK outside of the rules for an immigration visa
In circumstances where an applicant is unable to meet the criteria of any of the above that is covered by the immigration rules of the United Kingdom, the right to apply for leave outside of the immigration rules may be available to them
This is granted at the discretion of the SSHD and they will exercise that discretion after considering each applicants personal circumstances to decide whether their human rights have been breached
