Quite a lot, actually.

And to mark two years since it was introduced in immigration appeals, I’ve made a handy table summarising all the key cases on it.

[UPDATE: Version 4 of the Table (23 March 2017) is now available here.]

The idea is to provide a tool for practitioners, caseworkers and interested claimants to get a quick overview of the key developments in this increasingly complicated area.

Your feedback is welcome. It’s a work in progress.

I will aim to update it as significant clusters of new cases become available. All should be read in combination with the existing Article 8 case law (both domestically and from the European Court of Human Rights).

Happy reading!

  4. my daughter was born there, due to immigration rules, I had dispute with my wife in 2013. Then she left UK with my daughter. That time my daughter was 2.5 year old. The Home Office forcefully through out my wife & daughter out of the country in June 2013 and curtailed my wife’s student dependent visa.. That time I had Tier 4 visa. After some months Home Office curtailed my visa also due to TOEIC. I have been to Parliament many times as leader of all TOEIC students in UK. Arranged personal meeting with Mr. Jeremy Corbyn, Keith Vaz & Stephen Timms. After that Home office sent me to the detention centre for 9 months, without any offence. Members of Parliament requested many times to release me as they personally aware about my case. Also they have sent many emails and letters for release. But Home Office neglected those letters and emails. Finally after 9 months I was released. My daughter is 7 years old now and she is in India.. any chance to get visa for her under 7 years rules.
