Immigration - Leave to remain - Domestic violence

The Case

Immigration Leave to remain. Although Appendix AR of the Immigration Rules, replacing appeals with administrative review, was wrongly drafted, it would be given effect in domestic violence claims that were not also human rights claims, but it could not be read as overriding provisions conferring a right of appeal in a domestic violence case that was also a human rights claim. The Administrative Court further held that the defendant Secretary of State's refusal of the claimant Pakistani national's application for indefinite leave to remain based on domestic violence had been reached by an unfair process.
