“Today I met a terminally ill 20 year old girl with very high care needs. Her mother and sister were exhausted caring for her night and day. The family needed help and respite to cope. THANKS TO LEGAL AID, I persuaded the local authority to provide care, short breaks and respite.”
“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.”
