Reported Case

Mohammed (Family Court proceedings-outcome) [2014] UKUT 419 (IAC) (24 September 2014)

Date: 24/09/2014
Duncan Lewis, Reported Case Solicitors, Mohammed (Family Court proceedings-outcome) [2014] UKUT 419 (IAC)

The Royal Courts of Justice- Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber)

Whilst it may be that in the Family Court jurisdiction prior to the coming into force on 22 April 2014 of the Children and Families Act 2014 there was always the possibility of a parent making a fresh application relating to contact, there is nothing in the guidance given in RS (Immigration and Family Court) India [2012] UKUT 218 (IAC) (which was approved by the Court of Appeal inMohan v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2012] EWCA Civ 1363) that supports the notion that the mere possibility of such an application being made (or pursued) is a relevant criterion in the case of an immigration appeal when deciding whether to adjourn an appeal or to direct a grant of discretionary leave in order for such proceedings to be pursued. The guidance is concerned with whether there is a realistic prospect of the Family Court making a decision that will have a material impact on the relationship between a child and the parent facing immigration measures such as deportation.
