Immigration detention is the policy of holding individuals suspected of visa violations, illegal entry or unauthorised arrival, and those subject to deportation and removal, in detention until a decision is made by immigration authorities to grant a visa and release them from detention into the community, or to repatriate them to their country of departure. Mandatory immigration detention is the practice of compulsorily detaining or imprisoning people who are considered to be illegal immigrants or unauthorised to enter into a country.

At Solomon Shepherd Solicitors we know that immigration detention and practice law in bail application is complicated, not least because the rules change frequently and the interpretation of those rules is also subject to new rulings by the courts. 

Legal representation for your immigration detention is essential to ensure that the rules are applied correctly in each case for bail and to this end we can offer a professional service. We can assist in bail application services and as immigration detention lawyers deal with deportation, bail and removal issues.

Bail is when people who are detained by the UK Border Agency are released, on certain conditions. All detainees have the right to apply for bail if they have been in the UK for at least 7 days.

Please note we do not deal with Asylum cases and only deal with immigration detention. If you consider that you have been detained for an unreasonable period of time, need to apply for bail, or that you are being detained with no likelihood of you being removed from the UK, or alternatively are facing deportation, then we can assist. All costs have to be paid upfront and we will calculate the costs of our services.
