“Today I met a woman who wanted to live in the UK with her British husband to care for their severely disabled British child. The family couldn’t afford the application fee so the UKBA refused to consider it. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I got permission to have this decision reviewed by the court. The UKBA delayed a year before granting her leave to remain.
THIS CASE WOULD BE BARRED BY THE “RESIDENCE TEST”.
EXCEPTIONS ARE NOT ENOUGH.”
“I am a disabled man & I needed help from a legal aid lawyer. Due to the new under-occupancy rules I would have been forced to move into a property not suitable to my needs. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, my case was heard in the High Court and hopefully I will get justice.”
“Today I met a man who was paralysed following a stroke. He wanted a doctor to be able to help him end his life without fear of prosecution. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I was able to challenge the criminal law that prohibits assisting a person to die.”
“Today I met the single father of a young adult with learning difficulties. The local authority removed his son from his care, placing him in a respite facility & depriving him of his liberty. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I successfully applied to the Court of Protection to have his son return home.”
