Grounds for Judicial Review
Judicial review is a complex legal procedure that involves 'supervision' of the immigration authorities' decision-making process. This procedure can only be used when there is no alternative remedy or when such remedies have been exhausted already.
In order to succeed with your claim for Judicial Review you will have to show that:
the immigration authority is under a legal duty to act or make a decision in a certain way and is unlawfully refusing or failing to do so; or
a decision or action that has been taken is 'beyond the powers' of the immigration authority.
If the immigration authority acted illegally (e.g. there was an unreasonable, excessive delay in reaching a decision on your case etc.) or irrationally or the decision was reached unfairly then you can apply to the High Court for permission to lodge your judicial review claim. All claims for Judicial Review must be filed promptly and in any event not later than 3 months after the grounds to make the claim first arose.
