Rose Slowe secures successful appeal in pro bono immigration case

Rose acted pro bono for an appellant in her appeal against the Secretary of State for the Home Department’s decision to refuse her leave to remain in the United Kingdom with her husband.

The Appellant, a Sierra Leone national, had lived in the United Kingdom with her husband and their two young children as a nuclear family unit since December 2011. In his judgment, handed down on 21 June 2019, the Jude of the First-tier Tribunal allowed the appeal on human rights grounds, specifically on the basis of the appellant’s Article 8 right to a family life. He held that it would not be in the best interests of the children to leave with the appellant whilst their father remained in the country.
