If you are in the UK illegally or your leave has expired, you must return to your home country. Our immigration solicitors in London can offer proper guidance and legal assistance if your leave is out of date, or you stay illegally in the UK and you need to return to your home state.
Who needs to return home after an illegal stay in the UK
It is good to know that you can get suitable help and information if you are over 18 and any of the following aspects apply:
• you have been declined leave to remain in the UK;
• you have withdrawn, or want to withdraw your application to prolong your leave to remain because you wish to return to your home country;
• you are in a family group, with a child under 18 and an individual who is in the UK illegally.
This procedure is known as “voluntary departure”, and our immigration lawyer in London can offer full support and assistance.
Obtaining financial support
Every individual can apply in a different way for financial help and extra sustenance, if he qualified. The citizen is eligible if he:
• is waiting for a decision on an asylum request;
• has been refused asylum and has pleaded, or is appealing against the pronouncement;
• has entered the UK illegally and not claimed asylum, but is a victim of human trafficking or trafficking;
• is under 18 and wasn’t escorted by an adult when he arrived in the UK;
• is part of a family group that will travel together;
• has been given short-term leave to remain in the UK.
Assisted voluntary return is a crucial part of a complete method to migration management pointing at logical and civilized return and rehabilitation of immigrants who are incapable or unwilling to stay in host states. An individual can't apply for this if he:
• is presently being investigated by the police or arrested by the Home Office;
• has been given a prison verdict that is 12 months or longer;
• has been sentenced of an immigration crime and given a deportation order;
• has already received humanitarian shelter, indefinite leave to remain or refugee condition.
Please feel free to contact our UK immigration solicitors, in order to obtain suitable information or guidance if you stay illegally in UK and you need to return to your home country.
