Bail Applications

Suspected of visa violations, illegal entry or unauthorised arrival may be detained by the Home Office. Immigration Authorities hold detainees until a decision on their status is made.

Bail is the legal procedure of releasing an individual from immigration detention. This process is available to any person who has been detained by the Home Office. You must be detained under Immigration Acts. Also have been in a detention, removal centre or prison for seven days or more.

We apply to the court for release under certain conditions. When a detainee applies for bail the case is presented by their counsel to an immigration court. Here, an independent judge makes a decision on retaining the detainee.

The Home Office appoint a Presenting Officer to support the case for continued detention. When bail is granted it will be under certain conditions. These must be observed on release.

At Farani Taylor, we have experienced solicitors who can handle complicated bail cases. Therefore we are the perfect firm to guide you throughout the application. We understand how stressful these situations can be. Contact us today on 020 7242 1666 and our lawyers will be happy to help.
