    An appeal was withdrawn by Home Office a day before the hearing

    Initially, a client applied for leave as an unmarried partner by himself, without legal representation. The application was refused on two grounds:

    1. The client and their partner had not resided together for 2 years
    2. The client did not provide evidence they met the English language requirement.

    The client then approached us to assist with the appeal.

    After consultation with Oksana Demyanchuk and Michael Carter, Immigration Lawyers at Sterling Law, the omissions in the supporting documents were rectified, and further evidence was provided within the appeal bundles along with a skeleton argument.

    Upon reviewing the documents, the Home Office decided to withdraw the decision to refuse with a view to granting (LT) leave to remain the day before the hearing, meaning that the client was not required to go through a stressful court hearing and will be granted leave to remain.

    The importance of legal representation is never to be underestimated. It was possible to avoid the refusal had the client approached us first prior to making the application by himself without checking the immigration rules and guidance.
