Dublin Convention Removal and Bail

'My brother came to the UK from Iran. Enroute he was stopped in Hungary by the police and fingerprinted. He never applied for asylum. When he entered the UK he was arrested by the Immigration authorities and told that he would be sent back to Hungary under the Dublin Convention. My brother was suffering from depression and was self harming. The immigration centre where he was detained were not helpful and were very unco-operative. I contacted Mr Shah of Deane & Bolton because he was highly recommended by a family friend. Mr Shah of Deane & Bolton obtained medical records indicating that my brother was self harming and was not being cared for by the Immigration Detention Centre. The detention centre were informed by Mr Shah that my brother was in their care and that his welfare was their duty and that a failure to allow him to see the Medical Team would be a violation of his human right and that this would be brought to the attention of the Judges. A Bail application was the prepared and my brother was released. We are now challenging the Dublin Convention removal direction and Mr Shah has also put us in touch with a Lawyer who can help us bring a civil case against the Home Office for the suffering that my brother endured whilst in detention'.
I would always recommend Mr Shah of Deane & Bolton. He saved my bothers life. Mr Brother is now living with me and I can care for him and make sure he gets the best treatment.

Zambrano – Derivative Rights Application

'I am a Libyan National and I came to the UK with my children and my husband who are Libyans but British Citizens. I had an ILR in the UK but I was away for more than two years so this was cancelled. We were told by many people that I would have to leave the UK. I have young children who need me to care for them. While my husband had to return to Libya to care for his mother. We were stuck. Our good family friend referred us to Mr Shah of Deane & Bolton. He assessed my case and advised me that he could submit the Derivative Rights application to show that I was caring for the young children and that without me they would have no one. He also told us to prepare for the possibility that it will be refused and that the case will end up in Court. That is exactly what happened. In the Court Mr Shah was able to show that if I did not look after the children they would have to return to Libya with me. The judge granted the appeal on the day.
I am so happy and relieved after everyone told us we would have to go back and make an application from Tunisia or Libya.
I would always recommend Mr Shah of Deane & Bolton to any friends and family who may need Immigration advice and help.

Tier 1 Entrepreneur

'After the war in Libya, it was no longer safe. I had money but I wanted to use it to help my whole family. I met Mr Shah in Libya where he was visiting a client. I was referred to him by a close friend who also instructed Mr Shah. I was informed about the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa category and how I could relocate my whole family to the UK and set up business. I had the necessary funds and from there I was advised every step of the way. I was granted the Tier 1 Visa. I am in the UK now and have a number of businesses. I am about to apply for Settlement in the UK. My family is safe and have access to excellent health care and education because of the expertise of Deane & Bolton's Mr Shah who made this possible.
Not only did Mr Shah help me get the Tier 1 Visa he also worked with me and my financial advisers to ensure that the investment that I made was done in the manner required by the Home Office so that I qualify for Indefinite Leave to Remain. This was very important and I appreciate Mr Shah's help in planning and thinking ahead.
I will be asking Mr Shah to submit my Indefinite Leave to Remain application and also for Citizenship when the time comes. I always recommend Mr Shah and Deane & Bolton to anyone who asks.
