This course will examine the routes for refugees to apply for family reunion focussing on the rules, case law, UKVI policy, common reasons for refusal and how to best argue cases for family members who are not covered by the rules. We will consider problems of gathering evidence and the use of objective and expert evidence.
We will also look at how to apply for legal aid (ECF) for applications and/or appeals or alternative ways of obtaining pro bono assistance, including for costs with travel tickets.
Finally, we will deal with practical problems such as travelling during covid including quarantine hotel costs and possible exemptions.
