Excellent new case on a Child's best interests and s55 of the Borders Citizenship and Immigration Act 2009

04 December 2014 Immigration

Hot off the press is an excellent, though very wordy, case from the UT President Mr Justice McCloskey JO and Others (section 55 duty) Nigeria [2014] UKUT 00517 (IAC)

The judgement really takes Home Office decision making to task in respect of children and is a welcome shifting of the balance. For too long Home Office decision making has been cursory and dismissive of children's best interests, but this is not acceptable to McCloskey J.

A very helpful case on its face- and includes the basis to allow the appeal because the Home Office have not discharged their duties under s55, rather than just accept the pathetic decision making and have an immigration judge fix it for them.
