The deadline to lodge Permission application of Judicial Review is 90 days from the date of the most recent decision of the Home office. In case of the applicant being given right of administrative decision, it would be from the date of refusal of administrative review application, while in case where there was no right of administrative review it would be the date of the notice of decision issued by the home office.
One has to carefully consider and draft the grounds on which he or she may rely in their permission application for Judicial review to the Upper Tribunal or the High Court. The main point here is to identify an error of law in the decision of the Home office. It needs to be assessed whether the secretary of state for Home department has made a fair decision in the light of the relevant law, rules or regulations with reference to the decisions of the Upper Tribunal or the higher courts. It requires a wealth of expertise and experience to draft good grounds in such matters enhancing the chances of success.
Once Judicial Review is lodged, the respondent i.e. the Secretary of State for Home Department has 21 days to file “Acknowledgment of Service” along with the grounds of defence. The Upper Tribunal or the High Court whichever is applicable, taking account of arguments and documents presented by both parties, makes a decision.
The Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chambers) or the High Court, whichever the case may be, may take one of the following actions:
Grant permission for Judicial Review on all grounds
Grant permission for Judicial Review on one or more grounds
Refuse permission for Judicial Review
If permission is granted on all or limited grounds, the matter is then scheduled for a substantive court hearing at the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chambers) or the High Court and both the parties are issued with specific directions for the preparation of the substantive court hearing.
If the permission is refused then the claimant may then apply to renew the permission application in an oral hearing.
Once permissions is granted, the matter is listed for hearing at the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chambers) or the High Court and we then prepare for the substantive court hearing, which includes complying with the directions issued by the Upper Tribunal or the High Court, preparing bundles for the hearing and a brief for the counsel and finalizing Skeleton arguments.
