Training for ILPA: Exercise of discretion in family visa applications
Date: May 7, 2019, 4pm-7pm
Venue: To be confirmed, central London
Helena Sheizon will be delivering this course as a sequel to “Navigating Appendix FM” which was described by participants as “excellent” and “very useful”. This course is designed for immigration practitioners at an intermediate/advanced level.
This session will be in the form of an interactive seminar on the more complex scenarios in family immigration. We will discuss cases which do not fall squarely under the rules and require exercise of discretion.
The rules aim to streamline the decision-making process but many scenarios require decisions on on a case-by-case basis. The Home Office guidance documents give some insight into the relevant factors to be assessed and the way the Home Office will approach the balancing exercise. Further insights come from the developments in case law on Article 8.
Training will be delivered as a combination of legal update and practical exercise, addressing complex scenarios which do not fall squarely with the immigration rules.
Objective: to share knowledge on the best practices and successful strategies in family immigration matters and to help increase success rate in handling the more complex applications under Appendix FM.
