Immigration Issues for Children in Local Authority Care - The Current Law & Practice
This new half day course will cover immigration and nationality applications applicable to children in the care of social services that are subject to immigration control.
In most cases, this will involve children who have been removed from the care of their parents and where the local authority has been awarded parental responsibility. Some of these will concern applications within the immigration rules or those who have a right to register as a British citizen or already British citizens (but just don’t know it yet). However, a significant proportion of these types of applications are discretionary.
This course will benefit immigration practitioners and those whose practice involves children with immigration issues. It may also be helpful to lawyers working for the social services who would like to gain a greater understanding about the options available for those children in care who need to regularise their immigration status.
